Journal of the Evangelical Theological Society

Hoehner has placed all students of Ephesians in his debt with this meticulous, exhaustive, and seasoned commentary on one of Paul’s richest letters. Hoehner’s interaction with the secondary literature on Ephesians is encyclopedic, yet he keeps his exegetical discussion focused and clear. The result is a commentary that no pastor or scholar can afford to be without.

Frank Thielman, Presbyterian professor of divinity New Testament, Beeson Divinity School, Samford University

This thorough, thoughtful, and comprehensive commentary, the product of a lifetime of research and teaching, is marked by clarity, insight, and interaction with a broad array of scholarship. It is a ‘best buy’ that will fully repay the attention of all students of the New Testament.

—E. Earle Ellis, emeritus research professor of theology, Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary

Hoehner’s Ephesians not only cites the best advice and information in standard works on this letter but also carefully sifts the evidence and offers judicious conclusions. All other commentaries can be put in storage for retrieval as needed.

Frederick William Danker, emeritus professor, Lutheran School of Theology

I have anxiously anticipated this commentary since the early 1980s, and it is no disappointment. Hoehner has now produced the most detailed and comprehensive treatment of Ephesians ever written. The volume is well organized, clearly written, and very useful for in-depth study of the letter. It is now the indispensable standard for courses on Ephesians.

Clinton E. Arnold, professor of New Testament language and literature, Talbot School of Theology

This is quite simply the most massive and meticulously detailed commentary on Ephesians to date—with the strongest defense of the case that the author was truly Paul and that the letter was indeed written to Ephesus. Virtually every textual, lexical, grammatical-semantic, and historical issue has been scrutinized and is informed by a comprehensive coverage of the vast relevant primary and secondary literature.

—Max Turner, emeritus professor of New Testament, London School of Theology

    I grabbed this volume because it is the best of Ephesians by far. But now it is on sale and is comparable to Amazon for hardback and kindle edition. Get it while the price is low!

    Hands down, best exegetical commentary on Ephesians. Hoehner is very thorough addressing so many of the elements of consideration when doing exegesis. While the work is scholarly it is user friendly as well. If you purchase any commentary on Ephesians make this one it, you won't regret.

    Thank you for selling this separately from the Baker bundles! This is arguably the best commentary on Ephesians next to Peter T. O'Brien's work.
