Although Ezekiel's wife was a member of an elite group, she was exiled, along with her husband and other members of Jerusalem's high society, to Babylon. By interfacing ideological and psychoanalytical biblical criticisms, Johanna Stiebert removes Ezekiel's unnamed wife from the sidelines and uses her to explore fringe-fanatic religious practices and Ezekiel's mental state during the exile in Observing Spectacles from the Sidelines.Observing Spectacles from the Sideline brings the traumatic events of 597 B.C.E. to life by giving a clear picture of the historical period, Hebrew people, Jerusalem Temple Cult of ancient Israel, and worship practices in Babylon. Students using this book in the classroom will have a valuable resource for historical information and two contemporary methods of biblical criticism.Chapters in Observing Spectacles from the Sideline include "Chapter 1 Background," "Chapter 2 Worship in Jerusalem and Babylon," "Chapter 3 The Phenomenon of Prophecy," "Chapter 4 Ideological Criticism," "Chapter 5 Psychoanalytical Criticism," as well as a summary and conclusion.
