David Starling has produced a concise, sure-footed commentary on Ephesians and Colossians that is marked by careful research, balanced judgments, and clear prose. He helpfully illumines both the Greco-Roman context in which Paul produced these letters and their deep indebtedness to the Jewish Scriptures. Serious students of the Bible will find in this commentary a competent guide to Paul’s argument in Ephesians and Colossians and an invitation into their rich theological truths.

—Frank Thielman, Presbyterian Professor of Divinity Beeson Divinity School

David Starling has given us a fine, accessible commentary on these two important letters. He writes clearly, lucidly and readably, and guides readers well through debates about the letters. His discussion of exegetical issues in the text is judicious, and makes fine use of existing scholarship without being bound by it, and without undue speculation. He makes a solid case for authentic Pauline authorship of Ephesians and Colossians—something in considerable dispute in the last 150-200 years—and reads the letters as reflecting genuine issues facing these early Christian communities in their discipleship. This commentary is one to which I shall return in my teaching and preaching: students, pastors and professors will be delighted with it!
