The much needed, and timely, Catholic Commentary on Sacred Scripture
welcomes Peter Williamson's volume on Ephesians. This commentary, developed for the lay reader, church leaders, and pastors, promises to provide excellent scriptural commentary rooted in the long standing Catholic tradition. Insightful, very accessible (especially to those unschooled in the use of commentaries) Ephesians provides a fresh and informative treatment of this epistle that handles biblical scholarship without delving into technical jargon or merely "academic" issues.
This series is highly praised by, and recommended for, Christians from all denominations and backgrounds. Its lucid presentation and interpretation of the biblical text will enrich any course in Ephesians specifically, or the Pauline Epistles generally whether they are taught in churches, universities, or at home.
In this third volume of the Catholic Commentary on Sacred Scripture (CCSS), Peter Williamson interprets Ephesians for pastoral ministers and lay readers alike. This volume, like each in the series, relates Scripture to life, is faithfully Catholic, and is supplemented by features designed to help readers understand the Bible more deeply and use it more effectively in teaching, preaching, evangelization, and other forms of ministry.
Peter S. Williamson (STD, Pontifical Gregorian University) holds the Adam Cardinal Maida Chair in Sacred Scripture at Sacred Heart Major Seminary in Detroit, Michigan. He is the author of Catholic Principles for Interpreting Scripture and coeditor of John Paul II and the New Evangelization.
