Thielman’s Ephesians admirably combines the features that distinguish excellent commentaries on Scripture: breadth of research in both classical and contemporary writings, careful attention to the form and structure of the Greek text, clear writing, and appropriate theological and practical application. This commentary will join Hoehner and O’Brien as the first references on Ephesians to which I turn.
—Douglas J. Moo, Blanchard Professor of New Testament, Wheaton College
Thielman’s commentary plumbs its depths and is a model of informed and lucid interpretation. Like its subject, it is rich and edifying and repays careful reading.
