The New Covenant Commentary: Ephesians by New Testament scholar Lynn Cohick provides valuable, practical, and non-technical insights into Paul’s epistle to Ephesians, which speaks to our deepest questions about God: Ephesians addresses the redemptive plan of God written from ages past now revealed; the work of Christ complete and effective now and for eternity; the power of the Holy Spirit to change lives and build a community. The clear message of God’s unfathomable grace establishes the believer’s hope and undergirds the call for faithful living. Down through the centuries, the clarion call to unity that permeates Ephesians has inspired and challenged the faithful to live out the promises found in Christ. This short letter speaks to the twenty-first century’s longing for friendship and wholeness.

“Salvation for Paul is not a ticket into heaven for your soul, but the entrance into fellowship with God and his people” (Page 63)

“Ephesians pushes us toward a healthy vision of the church and away from a purely individualistic understanding of salvation.” (Page 4)

“Overall, Paul is concerned that the church (being light) presents a sharp contrast to the idolatrous darkness of the wider society.” (Page 123)

“The basis of growth in the Christian life is to understand who God is and who we are in Christ” (Page 57)

“In sum, Paul’s message about Christ’s gift to the church is that the ministers might serve the saints so that the saints might be well prepared to do the work of ministry. The goal for each group is a stronger, healthier body of Christ.” (Page 111)

The New Covenant Commentary Series, compiled by contributors form a diverse range of backgrounds, devotes itself to the task of biblical interpretation and theological reflection. It unwraps each biblical book section-by-section, providing a clear view of the theology and application within. Focusing on both the text and various contexts of each book, the series illustrates the impact they had on faith and tradition at the time of their composition—and the significance they continue to have in contemporary life, faith, and ministry.

Lynn Cohick’s commentary on Ephesians provides a practical explanation and appropriation of the letter. She demonstrates that she is well-informed about the issues, sane in her judgments, effective in her communication, and that she cares about the lives of modern Christians. Her knowledge of the ancient world allows her to bring historical and sociological information to bear on the text and its interpretation. People seeking an easily accessible and non-technical treatment of Ephesians will enjoy this commentary.
