Item description for The Message of Ephesians (The Bible Speaks Today) by John Stott...

Overview
In The Message to the Ephesians, John R.W. Stott expounds on Paul's theme of uniting all things in Christ by uniting his church and breaking down all that separates us from God, one ethnic group from another, husband from wife, parent from child, master from slave. A book for all who want to build the church into the new society God has planned it to be. The biblical text is printed in full. John Stott was rector of All Souls Church in London for twenty-five years and is an acclaimed and beloved author and commentator.

Publishers Description
Millions have caught Karl Marx's vision of a New Man and a New Society. "Paul presents a greater vision still," writes John Stott. In his letter to the Ephesians the apostle "sees the human predicament as something even deeper than the injustice of the economic structure and so propounds a yet more radical solution. He writes of nothing less than a 'new creation.'" John Stott expounds Paul's theme of uniting all things in Christ by uniting his church and breaking down all that seperates us from God, one ethnic group from another, husband from wife, parent from child, master from slave. A book for all who want to build the church into the new society God has planned it to be.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Message of Ephesians (The Bible Speaks Today)?

Worth owning (Second best commentary on Ephesians)  Apr 27, 2005
I purchased this book for a sermon series I'm doing on Ephesians. It was highly recommended by two friends. I am
happy with the book, but have to give it a four star rating
because I've found some explanations of Greek text, for example
the Ephesians 2:1 claim that trespasses and sins were the
equivalent of commission/omission do not stand up under scrutiny.
The lexicons I checked and the scholars I contacted did not concur with Stott's claim. He provides no support for this popular definition of sins and trespasses. For a commentary dealing with the Greek text, I was a bit disappointed with that.

This is the first time I've had this experience with Stott's stuff. The main reason I like his commentaries is that his
stuff provides good summaries that preach well.

I think overall this commentary is very good, but one must check the scholarship. For Ephesians so far I've found the best on
the Greek text is FF Bruce's commentary NICNT. He rightly identifies Eph 2:1 trespasses and sins as synonyms.

Out of all the commentaries I've purchased or read for Ephesians I would rate FF Bruce highest, Stott second and O'Brien third.
