Item description for First Thessalonians, Philippians, Second Thessalonians, Colossians, Ephesians: New Testament (New Collegeville Bible Commentary. New Testament) (Pt. 8) by Vincent M. Smiles...
Overview "Complete biblical texts with sound, scholarly based commentary that is written at a pastoral level; the Scripture translation is that of the New American Bible with Revised New Testament and Revised Psalms (1991)"--Provided by publisher.
Publishers Description Comprehensive and understandable, the New Collegeville Bible Commentary series brings the timeless messages and relevance of the New Testament to today's readers. With recent scholarship, this series provides vital background and addresses important questions such as authorship and cultural context. The New Collegeville Bible Commentary includes New American Bible translation and will appeal to preachers, teachers, Bible study groups, and Bible readers. Vincent M. Smiles provides a fresh look at the early Church and the faith with which they approached their dynamic, diverse community. With a brief introduction to each letter, Smiles brings to light issues such as authorship, dating, and historical situation. Smiles focuses on similarities and contrasts-such as eschatology, ecclesiology and the status of women-within these diverse, yet unified letters. A reading of these letters as "partners in a conversation" provides both an understanding and inspiration for today's Christian society: inspiration to meet our challenges in faith with the same creativity as did the early Church. With an understandable, yet comprehensive manner, this commentary will appeal to those interested in the changing early Church and its ancient wisdom.

awsome commentary Jan 24, 2010
I've read other commentaries from The New Collegeville Collection. A current Bible Study Group at my Catholic church is studying Ephesians. We are using a different commentary. I also wanted to enhance my understanding by using this book as well.
