Unlike Paul's letters to the Galatians or the Corinthians, the letter to the Ephesians contains almost no clues about the situation and issues its recipients faced. Nevertheless, the letter vividly depicts how God's will revealed in Christ reorients believers' lives toward unity, mutual respect, submission and love--in short, new life in Christ. Francis Foulkes expounds with clarity and ease the letter's central themes and emphases.

The original, unrevised text of this volume has been completely retypeset and printed in a larger, more attractive format with the new cover design for the series.

The Tyndale New Testament Commentaries have long been a trusted resource for Bible study. Written by some of the world's most distinguished evangelical scholars, these twenty volumes offer clear, reliable, and relevant explanations of every book in the New Testament.

These Tyndale volumes are designed to help readers understand what the Bible actually says and what it means. The introduction to each volume gives a concise but thorough description of the authorship, date, and historical background of the biblical book under consideration. The commentary itself examines the text section by section, drawing out its main themes. It also comments on individual verses and deals with problems of interpretation. The aim throughout is to get at the true meaning of the Bible and to make its message plain to readers today.

"The Tyndale volumes have long been the premier shorter-length commentary series on both Testaments throughout the English-speaking world."

Craig Blomberg, Denver Seminary

"Tyndale commentaries are always useful, not least because they focus so clearly on the text of Scripture, and do not fall into the trap of paying too much attention to other commentaries and not enough to the scriptural text they are intended to expound and explain. So they retain their usefulness for preachers, Bible study leaders and for all readers of the Bible."

Peter Adam, principal, Ridley College, Melbourne, Australia

"Within its constraints, this series includes some outstanding volumes."

D. A. Carson, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School

"There simply is no series of medium-length commentaries that approaches the excellence of the Tyndale commentaries."

Donald A. Hagner, Fuller Theological Seminary

"The evenness and quality of this series are remarkable."
