It is the end of the summer, and like most full time educators I am mourning the end, but looking forward to a great new semester. To celebrate, I want to give away one book a week for the next month. First up is Mark Edward’s recent Story of God commentary on Ephesians (Zondervan, 2016). Roberts is a pastor, author, retreat leader, speaker, and blogger (although he has not posted in 2019).
Since 2015, he has been the Executive Director of the Max De Pree Center for Leadership at Fuller Seminary. The commentary series combines academic insights with a pastoral heart. I had the opportunity to meet Mark this summer and thought he was the ideal person to write this kind of commentary. He is a scholar who has spent much of his career in some sort of pastoral ministry. I have read through the commentary and it is quite useful.
To have a chance at winning this book, leave a comment with your name and your favorite commentary on Ephesians. I will randomize the names from the comments and select one winner at random. I will respond to your comment informing you you have won the book, but you will need to contact me with shipping information.
I will announce the winner on August 21, 2019 (one week from now). Good Luck!

Peter T O’Brien — Ephesians, PILLAR NT COMMENTARY SERIES
My favorite commentary on Ephesians? Good question. I own Markus Barth’s monster but have grown dissatisfied with it over the years. Lincoln and O’Brien are solid but not really exciting. And that’s what I own. Which one do you recommend?
Years ago I enjoyed reading a short expository account called “Sit, Walk, Stand”, by Watchman Nee. I don’t remember much more than the title, which is also the outline.
My favorite commentary is the encyclopedic treatment by Hoehner.
Not exactly a commentary (not remotely a commentary?) but Sit, Walk, Stand by Watchman Nee.
Dwight Gingrich. I probably use Clint Arnold’s ZECNT commentary the most.
My mum used to remind us waht Ephesians 6:1 “Children, obey your parents in the LORD: for this is right.” (KJV)
Ephesians… where I first learned about the biggest word in teh Scriptures…. “therefore”.
Eadie’s grammatical work is thorough.
Zach Kemper – My favorite commentary on Ephesians is The Bible Knowledge Commentary mainly because of the format and making light of the recent disputes questioning Pauline authorship of this epistle.
David Nash. My favorite is S. M. Baugh’s EEC commentary.
David – you are the winner. Contact me via email plong42@gmail,com with an address and I will ship this out to your right away.

I’m still looking for a favorite commentary on Ephesians. I’ve used Harold Hoehner’s the most, and it’s great for digging into the Greek, but I find it’s not as good for helping one grasp the larger theological picture. Loses the forest for the trees, so to speak.
Perhaps the best in the Harry A. Ironside commentary series is his treatment of Ephesians
I really enjoy this series! I’m still working through Mike Bird’s Romans one!
I’ll probably have to go with Hoehner. I’m Abram.
Hi Abram, I really miss your blog, the Septuagint studies were always good reads.
Thanks! I miss my blog, too! 🙂
