Description: Ephesians speaks to our deepest questions about God: the redemptive plan of God from ages past now revealed; the work of Christ complete and effective now and for eternity; the power of the Holy Spirit to change lives and build a community. The clear message of God's unfathomable grace establishes the believer's hope and undergirds the call for faithful living. Down through the centuries, the clarion call to unity that permeates Ephesians has inspired and challenged the faithful to live out the promises found in Christ. This short letter speaks to the twenty-first century's longing for friendship and wholeness. Lynn H. Cohick's commentary offers the reader an accessible and insightful guide to the epistle, and is careful to relate our understanding of the text to the issues surrounding the ministry of the Church today.
