Ephesians: A Commentary
Fowl, Stephen E.

Louisville: Westminster John Knox, 2012 pp. xviii + 249. $40.00

Series Information
The New Testament Library


Description: Even though it was written some two millennia ago, Ephesians still speaks to Christians today in themes quite familiar to the modern reader. In a context where the church had become overwhelmingly, if not exclusively, Gentile, the Christian community needed to be reminded of the priority of Israel and the astonishing work of reconciliation that God willed to accomplish in the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. This new volume in the highly acclaimed New Testament Library series reveals the great theological promises of Ephesians while discussing issues of context, authorship, and style.

Subjects: Bible, New Testament, Deutero-Pauline Epistles, Ephesians, Literature
