An important collection of essays by Professor Ernest Best, author of the new commentary on Ephesians for the International Critical Commentary series.His subjects include, for example, the use of traditional material, the view of the ministry as expressed in Ephesians, Paul’s apostolic authority.These essays represent a valuable companion and supplement to the commentary.
No serious student of Ephesians would want to be without this collection of wise, witty and sometimes biting essays by Professor Best, the product of two decades of devoted scholarship ... the collection of these in one place is especially to be welcomed. All the essays are distinguished by learning that is lightly worn and by commonsense.
This smaller volume admirably serves its intended purpose of providing a companion work to the commentary and would be a useful addition to the libraries of graduate scholars as well as scholars and institutions. This is distinguishes scholarship that is at the same time reader-friendly.
