This commentary includes a major introduction, translation and verse-by-verse commentary. Professor Best provides an overall view of Ephesians which demonstrates the power and consistency of its author's work. Among the many important elements in this commentary, Ernest Best explores, for example, the relationship between the primarily theological aspects of Ephesians which concentrate on the nature of the church, and the primarily ethical aspects which concentrate on the behaviour of members of Christian communities towards one another. This is a scholarly work.
For over one hundred years, the International Critical Commentary series has held a special place among works on the Bible. It has sought to bring together all the relevant aids to exegesis — linguistic and textual no less than archaeological, historical, literary and theological—with a level of comprehension and quality of scholarship unmatched by any other series.
No attempt has been made to secure a uniform theological or critical approach to the biblical text: contributors have been invited for their scholarly distinction, not for their adherence to any one school of thought. The first paperback editions to be published cover the heart of the New Testament, providing a wealth of information and research in accessible and attractive format.
