Thought these were conservative
May 5, 2011
I bought this commentary thinking that it came from a conservative viewpoint. Very disappointed to find out right off that the author denies Pauline authorship of Ephesians. The scholarship is thorough, but this book will be hard to trust knowing its coming from such a critical viewpoint.
