Item description for Colossians and Ephesians (Sacra Pagina Series) by Margaret Y. MacDonald...

Overview
No two works in the Pauline Epistles resemble each other as closely as Colossians and Ephesians. Often recognized for their majestic tone and powerful theological statement, Colossians and Ephesians also present many challenges of interpretation. Most commentaries on these letters seem preoccupied with the same few issues, particularly the question of authorship. As MacDonald addresses these classic questions, she offers a fresh perspective on Colossians and Ephesians by making use of insights from the social sciences. Moreover, by paying attention to subtle differences between the two letters, she brings their distinct perspectives into sharp relief.

Publishers Description
No two works in the Pauline Epistles resemble each other as closely as Colossians and Ephesians. Often recognized for their majestic tone and powerful theological statement, Colossians and Ephesians also present many challenges of interpretation. Most commentaries on these letters seem preoccupied with the same few issues, particularly the question of authorship. As MacDonald addresses these classic questions, she offers a fresh perspective on Colossians and Ephesians by making use of insights from the social sciences. Moreover, by paying attention to subtle differences between the two letters, she brings their distinct perspectives into sharp relief.

MacDonald highlights the interplay between Colossians and Ephesians and the social life of New Testament communities. She illustrates how the texts reflect ancient cultural values and are influenced by particular aspects of community life such as worship and household existence. In particular, she reflects on the issues faced by these communities as they formed institutions and interacted with the society around them. She shows the struggles of the New Testament communities to survive and maintain a distinct identity in first-century society.

Reviews - What do customers think about Colossians and Ephesians (Sacra Pagina Series)?

Excellent contemporary commentary  Oct 22, 2006
I recently completed a seminary course in Ephesians for which this commentary was not itself required, but each time I was in the library I found myself turning to it for broader insight on the cultural setting of the letters. If my first choice on Ephesians would have to remain Lincoln's exhaustive Word commentary, I would nonetheless suggest MacDonald's as a significant contribution from which to draw. Taken with either Schnackenburg or Yoder Neufeld on Ephesians, and Dunn or Lohse on Colossians, one would have as wide a view on these key NT letters as seems currently available.
