Dr. Lloyd-Jones’s much loved series on Ephesians is one of the most complete commentaries on that book. This eight-volume set displays the respected author’s elegant style and probing exegesis. Each volume covers a portion of the Book of Ephesians, from an overview of God’s ultimate purpose to an exploration of the Christian soldier.
The entire series is marked by Lloyd-Jones’s careful exposition of the themes and thoughts in Ephesians. Each issue is comprehensively explored and fit into the over-arching purpose of the epistle. Moreover, he demonstrates how the modern Christian can practically apply the spiritual truths of the book to their everyday lives.
Lloyd-Jones begins by showing how the first chapter of Ephesians is basic to all New Testament studies. He asserts that the great doctrine Paul lays out in this chapter illuminates the entire teaching of Ephesians. The series concludes with an examination of the general principles of spiritual warfare. Here, Lloyd-Jones discusses in detail the pieces of armor Paul mentions that make up “the whole armor of God.” Other issues Lloyd-Jones deals with include:
Originally preached as sermons at Westminster Chapel, this commentary exhibits the author’s trademark blend of profound insight and practical application. Eight volumes comprise an unfailing resource for preachers and Bible teachers. However, they are equally rewarding for personal study. In fact, Christians at every stage of development will find them an invaluable guide to living the Christian life in today’s world.
