In this volume, Peter Williamson interprets Ephesians for pastoral ministers and lay readers alike. Insightful, very accessible (especially to those unschooled in the use of commentaries) Ephesians provides a fresh and informative treatment of this epistle that handles biblical scholarship without delving into technical jargon or merely “academic” issues. This volume, like each in the series, relates Scripture to life, is faithfully Catholic, and is supplemented by features designed to help readers understand the Bible more deeply and use it more effectively in teaching, preaching, evangelization, and other forms of ministry.

With the Logos edition, each Scripture passage links with your favorite translation, and is easy to study side by side with your other commentaries. You can search by topic or Scripture with lightning fast results!

Top Highlights

“When people bless God, they praise him. When God blesses, he confers a benefit.” (Page 31)

“This prayer fulfills one of the main purposes of the letter, namely, to help Christians appreciate the extraordinary gifts we have received through Christ.” (Page 30)

“In the Bible the primary meaning of the word ‘holy’ is not ‘virtuous’ but ‘set apart’ from what is ordinary or profane for God, who is himself ‘holy’ and transcendent.” (Page 33)

“By invoking Jesus’ death on the cross as the model for husbands, Paul summons men to lay down their lives for their wives. While on rare occasions dying for one’s wife may be literally necessary, he means it in the everyday sense of husbands dying to self by prioritizing their wives’ needs and wants before their own.” (Page 166)

“Second, Paul exhorts wives to do so as to the Lord, that is, to yield to their husbands sincerely as an expression of their submission to Jesus.” (Page 158)

A landmark achievement in theological interpretation of Scripture in and for the Church. Everything about it is inviting and edifying. Highly recommended for all!
