The New International Biblical Commentary is a conservative treatment of the Scriptures. This volume on Ephesians, Colossians, and Philemon begins with an introductory section which discusses the origin, authorship, purpose, and contents of these letters. The commentary is scholarly yet readable and draws out Paul's message to each church. This is a good commentary for students or informed readers.
Â“The NIBC has been written by internationally respected experts in Biblical Studies. Scholarly arguments are carefully analyzed and presented in a way that anyone concerned to gain a deeper understanding of the New Testament will find both accessible and helpful. Christians of many different traditions will welcome this series as a valuable resource that will promote better understanding of the Bible and its message.Â”
Â—John W. Drane, University of Stirling
