The Apostle Paul's letter to the Ephesians is one of the most dynamic portions in 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, as well as its careful presentation of doctrine and duty, Ephesians points the way to true Christian living and victory in a sin-embattled world.
In this helpful volume, Pastor Hughes provides and engaging treatment of the major themes in Ephesians:
- The celebration of full redemption
- The mystery of a new humanity in Christ
- The fullness of the Spirit for holy living
- The beauty of God-given roles in the home and workplace
- The implications of our position with Christ in the heavenly realms
- Resounding victory in spiritual warfare
This practical commentary on one of the most important Pauline expositions of soteriology will challenge and equip both pastors and students for a walk of spiritual power.
