This brief study is intended primarily for theological students, and perhaps also for ministers who wish to update their scholarship. It seeks to show the issues facing those who seek to study Ephesians or interpret it. The first part examines in detail the normal questions of authorship and destination. The second offers a brief survey of the content of the letter drawing out its main points. The third part concentrates attention on its theology, treating in detail its teaching about the church and behaviour. In this it is claimed that these two areas of life together in the Christian community and conduct within it reflect on one another and influence each other; in that sense the letter is a unity of thought. While an attempt is made to solve the problems which present themselves, for example whether, the author was not Paul but a disciple, there is no suggestion that the writer's own solutions are the only possible ones.

About the Author:

Ernest Best was Professor Emeritus at the University of Glasgow.

Review:

'If you are looking for a thorough commentary on the Greek text of Ephesians, then this will not let you down.'
Doug Chaplin, St Clement's Worcester, Reviews in the Religion and Theology
'Let us say it at once: this is now the premier English commentary on Ephesians in print.'
Edgar Krentz, Currents in Theology and Mission
'Students [...] would learn more about the value of patient exegesis, the conceptual world of the New Testament authors, and the study of language from this volume than from several survey courses.... Linguistic precision, exegetical breadth and penetrating theological observation make every page of this commentary a pleasure. Best writes with a graceful clarity that if often lacking in the Greek text before him. Because ICC volumes are known for close textual work, many students only take them off the shelf to untangle a difficult passage. This volume serves those readers, but its theological insights make this a book for reading as well.'
Pheme Perkins, Boston College, Interpretation
'Professor Best's commentary with its wealth of detailed exegetical discussion is one of the most useful for those concerned with serious study of Ephesians and all who wish to discuss the value of Ephesians' contribution to thinking about the nature and role of the church.'
Andrew T. Lincoln, Journal of Theological Studies
'No one working on any aspect of Ephesians will be able to ignore this magisterial commentary by Best. It is a worthy and welcome contribution to biblical scholarship and one that will easily pass the test of time.'
Eugene Hensell, The Catholic Biblical Quarterly
'While the commentary is very much a tool for scholars, it is accessible to preachers [who] will find that there are few problems raised by the text which have not been perceived by Best and on which he offers helpful comment.'
I. Howard Marshall, Epworth Review
'The breadth and depth of the discussion make it required reading for those who want critically to engage with the text and thought world of Ephesians.'
Philip H. Kern, Reformed Theological Review
'As one has come to expect from Dr Best, the exposition is meticulous and detailed and is supported by a wide-ranging bibliography.'
Earle Ellis, Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, Southwestern Journal of Theology
'This commentary is the crown of a distinguished career. It will prove indispensable for the study of Ephesians for many years to come.'
The Bible Translator
