In this careful consideration of one of the best loved books of the New Testament, Chafer presents neither a commentary nor an exegesis of the book of Ephesians, but a doctrinal examination. Breaking up the book into sections, he addresses key themes and teachings in this book. Chafer provides historical and theological context as well, giving a holistic view of Ephesians. Presenting solid theology for the general reader as well as for scholars, this volume is essential for study of the book of Ephesians.
No subject was more dear to the heart of Dr. Lewis Sperry Chafer than the teaching of the Scriptures on the spiritual life.
—John F. Walvoord, president of Dallas Theological Seminary
I welcome therefore this present book on these fundamental truths. Having had the privilege of seeing it in manuscript, I bespeak for it the candid attention of all who are concerned for the truth of God.
—C.I. Scofield, in the preface to the 1936 edition of The Kingdom in History and Prophecy
I am glad of the privilege of calling attention to a presentation of the way of salvation which is certain to lead all who read it earnestly to a living faith in Christ, and then to a constant joy because of the abundant and assured provision of God for the Christian life.
—W. H. Griffith Thomas, in the preface to the 1917 edition of Salvation
