Mein aims to set Ezekiel's ethics firmly in the social and historical context of the Babylonian Exile. Ezekiel's moral concerns and priorities, Mein suggests, are substantially shaped by the social experience of deportation and resettlement. They also represent a creative response to the crisis, providing significant impetus for social cohesion and the maintenance of a distinctively Jewish community.Table of Contents1 Moral worlds: ancient Israelite ethics in a social context 2 Ezekiel and the exiles 3 The world of politics 4 The politics of cult 5 Ritual and ethics 6 The 'domestication' of ethics 7 From responsibility to passivity Conclusion: Ezekiel and the ethics of exile
