Excellent commentary. The author's knowledge of the historical background to these epistles is massive and well worth sharing. Straightforward exposition. If you need to understand the scholarly debate and the theological message of the letters you need this volume. Superb.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bruce on Ephesians 29 Jun. 2005
By David A. Bielby - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
As a practicing pastor who tries to develop sermons from the Greek text, I've been working through Ephesians. When I started my series a couple pastor friends recommended Stott's commentary on Ephesians, which I purchased. I also picked up about four or five other commentaries including this one. Then I've borrowed about a dozen more commentaries. As I have worked through the text (I'm now in chapter 5) I've found that Bruce is more accurate in his handling of the Greek text than Peter O'Brien or John Stott. One case is Ephesians 2:1 where Bruce correctly identifies trespasses and sins as synonyms. Stott & O'Brien come up with various theories which sound good but don't hold water with the lexical entries or scholars I've been interacting with online. I've found this repeated again in Ephesians 4:22-24 where Bruce identifies aorist infinitives not as past tense verbs, but as verbs that tilt towards imperatives (as most translators agree). However, Stott unconvincingly argues that these aorist infinitives must be past tense, even though he is flying in the face of Greek grammars on aorist tense and most biblical translators.

For these reasons I've learned to turn to Bruce first before I check my other commentaries. And if I don't have time to read several versions I tend to go to this one first.

I guess I would recommend preaching pastors/teachers to use Bruce to make sure that any great sounding phrases or things that might preach well from other commentators are really accurate.

If Bruce has a drawback it is in the very area that I love Stott for the most. Bruce doesn't always come up with great sounding phrases that would preach well. Stott does that all through his commentary. So I guess at least for Ephesians, I would use Stott for application and Bruce for exegesis.

There are a few times where Bruce doesn't give a lot of detail. My assumption is that there's not much worth commenting on in the scope of theories out there. Having said that, I can't imagine studying Ephesians in depth without Bruce. It's fantastic. Get a copy if you can! For a minister's library,

it might be the best commentary out there on Ephesians.

5.0 out of 5 stars This aided me in understanding the role of a christian wife. 5 July 2013
By JAMES BECKETT - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Dr. Bruce's thoroughness and non dogmatic style allowed me to think through possible meanings of controversial a passages, challenging the interpretation in the ESV Study Bible, verses Col 3:18 and Eph 5:22-24: a wife's position is hierarchical, subordinate to her husband. Dr. Bruce takes exception to subordination,challenging the interpretation in the ESV Study Bible, for verses Col. 3:18 and Eph. 5:22-24: a wife's position is hierarchical, subordinate to her husband. Dr. Bruce takes exception to subordination. On ESV translation, "the husband is the head of the wife," Dr. Bruce says substitute the word source for the word head, alluding to 1 Cor. 11:3. Dr. Fee, in the companion 1st Cor. commentary presents additional arguments against subordination., Dr. Bruce's work in the New Testament supports the Old Testament verse "I will make a helpmeet for him" (Gen. 2:18 KJV). Translatng from the Hebrew the wife's role is to be both contemporaneous and counterpart (stand against or opposite).

Great commentary, not the first one I've purchased in the series, and certainly won't be the last. Has been very insightful for sermon preparation and Bible study.
5.0 out of 5 stars F.F. Bruce is the dean of scholars Whom has a Full a Grasp of Scripture 30 May 2014
By thomas j. zwemer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
F. F. Bruce is the dean of scholars on the Apostle Paul. He is not a particularly easy read, but he is a must read to understand Pauline thought and theology. I was particularly taken with his commentary on Ephesians. of course it is one of my best epistles of Paul. particularly the second chapter.
5.0 out of 5 stars Three for the price of one. 9 Dec. 2014
By Dennis W. Bailey - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
You can't go wrong with F.F. Bruce. I purchased this book for research purposes in a seminary course on the book of Ephesians. The bonus is that you get three letters for the price of one. Conservative scholarship in an understandable format.
