A clear, scholarly and helpful commentary, 9 Jan. 2008
John Stott's exposition of the great letter to the Ephesians is extremely helpful and clearly written. For sure, Stott's writing style is not an easy read for all, but it is worth a read for anyone studying the book of Ephesians. It is aimed at a very wide range of readers. Stott deals with many questions that arise in the academic study of the Bible, such as controversies surrounding the authorship of the letter and various interpretations of certain passages, making it suitable for those following theological studies. However, he is constantly relating and applying his exegesis to Church life. He clearly portrays God's eternal plan for unity and peace within a worldwide Church. Whether you are simply looking to discover more about God's plan for the church, preparing a sermon, writing an essay or simply curious, 'The Message of Ephesians: God's New Society' is a fantastic book.
