One objective of this book is to set forth the heart of Christian theology. This volume is composed of sixteen in-depth studies designed to strengthen and encourage Christians in their daily walk with God and with one another. Chapter 1 begins with an overview of the Book of Ephesians in order to set the proper background to understanding how Paul unravels God's mystery. Chapters 2, 3, and 4 take a look at Paul's call to the ministry, the word saints, and the administration of God's grace. Chapter 5 explores the existence of God. Since Jesus is the center of Christianity, three chapters (6, 7, and 8) focus upon different aspects of Christ as Redeemer. Chapter 9 examines Paul's defense of Jesus' Incarnation. The next three Chapters (10, 11, and 12) are devoted to Christ as the fulfillment of Messianic prophecy. Chapter 10 scans the Book of Genesis. Chapter 11 discusses Moses' prophecy in Deuteronomy 18:15 and Balaam's prophecies in the Book of Numbers. Chapter 12 unfolds the progressive announcement of the Coming Messiah in the Book of Isaiah. The last three chapters (14, 15, and 16) are devoted to an analysis of the biblical concept of predestination and election.
