Paul's epistle to the Ephesians is possibly best known for its description of the 'Christian's Armor.' The letter is a reminder to the churches in Asia to live out their faith in the light of the redemption unveiled by God. It is a section of scripture that has lastingly influenced many believers throughout church history.
R. C. Sproul lootheks at the main issues raised in Ephesians. These include how to overcome idolatry, God's sovereignty in ALL things and the importance of fellowship and commitment to the church for healthy spiritual growth.
There are many areas in the epistle which have occasioned real dispute in the Christian Church and these are dealt with in Sproul's customary style–deep profundity allied to a sure touch in communicating illuminating truth. You will be surprised at how freshly Paul's understanding of the Christian faith leaps off the page.

“The key work of the Holy Spirit in regeneration is not giving new knowledge to the brain but changing the disposition of the heart.” (Page 39)
“Gentlemen, the essence of Christian theology is grace and the essence of Christian ethics is gratitude.’” (Page 59)
“The majority viewpoint today is that, in all probability, the epistle to the Ephesians was written originally as a circular letter.” (Page 11)
“But the reason why certain gifts are given for leadership is to equip the believers for ministry. The church is to be a mobilised army.” (Page 103)
“The first is that election and predestination belong to the whole scope of salvation” (Pages 22–23)
There is a freshness and vigor in this work which makes for easy reading, yet clearly it is under-girded by sound biblical scholarship...immensely practical.
