Publisher's Description

Associated closely for almost two millennia, the Pauline letters Ephesians, Colossians, and Philemon share many names, places, and situations. Each has its own theological emphasis and purpose, ranging from the Christological to the ecclesiological. Although the authors of this New Beacon Bible Commentary discuss matters of authorship, background, vocabulary, and literary style, they approach these writings as servants, always mindful of each letter’s canonical authority as Christian Scripture and its inestimable value to the church. The rich scholarship and accessible composition of this volume make it a welcome addition to the NBBC family.The New Beacon Bible Commentary is an engaging, indispensable reference tool to aid individuals in every walk of life in the study and meditation of God’s Word. Written from the Wesleyan theological perspective, it offers insight and perceptive scholarship to help you unlock the deeper truths of Scripture and garner an awareness of the history, culture, and context attributed to each book of study. Readable, relevant, and academically thorough, it offers scholars, pastors, and laity a new standard for understanding and interpreting the Bible in the 21st century. Each volume features:Completely New Scholarship from notable experts in the Wesleyan traditionConvenient Introductory Material for each book of the Bible including information on authorship, date, history, audience, sociological/cultural issues, purpose, literary features, theological themes, hermeneutical issues, and moreClear Verse-by-Verse Explanations, which offer a contemporary, Wesleyan-based understanding derived from the passage’s original language
