Item description for Commentary-Ephesians (Preaching The Word) by R. Kent Hughes...
Overview A practical and stimulating examination of one of Paul's richest epistles. A Preaching the Word commentary that is sure to equip and encourage the people of God.
The Apostle Paul's Letter to the Ephesians is one of the most dynamic portions of all of Scripture. Called by one commentator "the crown and climax of Pauline theology," it issues a clarion call to all who follow the Master. With its dual focus on Christ and the Church, with it's careful presentation of doctrine, then duty, it points the way to true Christian living and victory in a sin-embattled world.
In this helpful volume, Pastor Hughes provides an interesting treatment of the major themes of Ephesians: The celebration of full redemptionThe mystery of a new humanity--a third race--in ChristThe fullness of the Spirit for holy livingThe beauty of God-given roles in the home and workplaceThe implications of our position with Christ in the heavenly realmsResounding victory in spiritual warfare

Reviews - What do customers think about Commentary-Ephesians (Preaching The Word)?
Great Reference Tool May 9, 2008
The Preaching the Word series is a great collection of reference tools for laymen and pastors alike. I have enjoyed R. Kent Hughes writings for years. I think that they are especially useful for laymen as his writing is very practical and doesn't tend to use lots of "Greek" or long theological terms that laymen would not be familiar with.
The chapters are not exceptionally long, but provide a good overview of the text in question.
I would recommend any of the Preaching the Word Series for serious students of the Bible.
