The International Critical Commentary (ICC), published by T&T Clark International, has long held a special place among works on the Bible. It brings together all the relevant aids to exegesis: linguistic and textual, archaeological, historical, literary, and theological, with a comprehensiveness and quality of scholarship unmatched by any other series.
The ICC series has also been rather difficult to purchase in its entirety, due in part to the cost of the print volumes, numerous revisions of various volumes, and the fact that most retailers do not offer the entire set as one purchase. The Logos edition contains the most recent edition of each title and provides an easy way to own every volume of this often-cited commentary set. If you were to purchase all 61 volumes of commentaries in print at suggested retail price, the cost would be over $3,800.00. The Logos edition provides a substantial discount and presents the content in a more flexible medium than print! This series is under the editorship of Graham Davies and Christopher Tuckett.
This volume prides itself in its linguistic precision, exegetical breadth, and penetrating theological observation on the epistle of Ephesians.
If you are looking for a thorough commentary on the Greek text of Ephesians, then this will not let you down.

—Edgar Krentz, Currents in Theology and Mission
Professor Best’s commentary with its wealth of detailed exegetical discussion is one of the most useful for those concerned with serious study of Ephesians and all who wish to discuss the value of Ephesians’ contribution to thinking about the nature and role of the church.
—Andrew T. Lincoln, Journal of Theological Studies
No one working on any aspect of Ephesians will be able to ignore this magisterial commentary by Best. It is a worthy and welcome contribution to biblical scholarship and one that will easily pass the test of time.
—Eugene Hensell, The Catholic Biblical Quarterly
While the commentary is very much a tool for scholars, it is accessible to preachers [who] will find that there are few problems raised by the text which have not been perceived by Best and on which he offers helpful comment.
—I. Howard Marshall, Epworth Review
The breadth and depth of the discussion make it required reading for those who want critically to engage with the text and thought world of Ephesians.
