Publishers Description Unlike Paul's letters to the Galatians or the Corinthians, the letter to the Ephesians contains almost no clues about the situation and issues its recipients faced. Nevertheless, the letter vividly depicts how God's will revealed in Christ reorients believers' lives toward unity, mutual respect, submission and love--in short, new life in Christ. Francis Foulkes expounds with clarity and ease the letter's central themes and emphases. The original, unrevised text of this volume has been completely retypeset and printed in a larger, more attractive format with the new cover design for the series. The Tyndale New Testament Commentaries have long been a trusted resource for Bible study. Written by some of the world's most distinguished evangelical scholars, these twenty volumes offer clear, reliable, and relevant explanations of every book in the New Testament. These Tyndale volumes are designed to help readers understand what the Bible actually says and what it means. The introduction to each volume gives a concise but thorough description of the authorship, date, and historical background of the biblical book under consideration. The commentary itself examines the text section by section, drawing out its main themes. It also comments on individual verses and deals with problems of interpretation. The aim throughout is to get at the true meaning of the Bible and to make its message plain to readers today.

Reviews - What do customers think about Ephesians, An Introduction and Commentary (Tyndale New Testament Commentaries)?
Great Explanation of the Prison Epistles Mar 28, 2010
Foulkes' commentary on Ephesians is not only a classic, but a great work to help you understand this Epistle and others like it. Foulkes' Introduction gives an accurate and succinct summary of the historical context of Ephesians as well as laying out the many historical debates over authorship and address. In the commentary section Foulkes capably breaks down ever verse and lays out many of the sometimes controversial topics. His understanding of the concepts of Election and Predestination and Paul's view and use of them are the best I've ever read. He also covers relationships between husbands and wives, rules for Holy living, and the role of the Holy Spirit. All in all a great read, you'll be glad you went through it.
Excellent book for the price! Sep 18, 2009
I need this book for a class I want to take. The only problem was a mark on the front and I expected as least as much. The inside was perfect, much better than I expected.
