The famous Pelican takes on a new look in this important series of commentaries on the New Testament. Originally published by Penguin Books, it has now been taken over by SCM Press who will continue it and develop it further. The commentaries on the four gospels in paperback will continue to be published by Penguin Books; cased editions of these books and editions of all other commentaries, both cased and paperback, will in future be published by SCM Press. In their new format, the commentaries will aim, as before, to provide explanations of the books of the New Testament which are neither abstruse and academic, nor over-simplified, fundamentalist or out of date. Paul's Letters from Prison covers the 'captivity epistles' which, though of uncertain authorship, are commonly attributed to the apostle Paul: Philippians, Colossians, Philemon and Ephesians.
