Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

According to James Montgomery Boice, Paul's great letter to the Ephesians is "a mini-course in theology, centered on the church." Writing to the church in a city much like modern-day New York, Paul laid out his mature vision of the Christian faith's central elements. The apostle set these fundamental doctrines in the context of the church as the body of Christ.

In this compelling commentary, Boice presents the message of Paul with great depth and clarity. The author proclaims the profound yet simple gospel once delivered to the church in Ephesus and effectively applies it to the modern church.

Writes Boice: "There is no denying that Ephesians is deeply appealing, perhaps precisely because . . . it presents the basic doctrines of Christianity comprehensively, clearly, practically, and winsomely." With this helpful, thoughtful commentary as your guide, you are invited to discover the appeal of Ephesians for yourself.

James Montgomery Boice (1938-2000) was senior pastor of Tenth Presbyterian Church in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He was also president and cofounder of the Alliance of Confessing Evangelicals, the parent organization of The Bible Study Hour on which Boice was a speaker for more than thirty years.

Boice has written another fabulous commentary. I would highly recommend utilizing any commentary that he has written. That being said, you have to be careful when shopping for a commentary--you need to understand the type of commentary that you want. Boice's commentaries are not technical in nature (i.e. they are not written to help you break down passage, understand the greek nuances, etc). Boice's commentaries are written to help you understand how to apply the passage and how you might contextualize the passage for your local congregation. In actuality, this commentary is the conglomeration of Boice's sermons on Ephesians. So, if you are looking for your one commentary to help you on your studies as you prepare to preach Ephesians, this is not the commentary for you. However, if you are looking for another commentary to help you think through the application and implications of Ephesians, this would be a helpful resource.

Format: Paperback
**** Ephesians has been termed the Queen of the Epistles, a symphony of the New Testament, and of all the maestros to conduct that suite, James Montgomery Boice is among the most adept. Putting deep theological concepts into layman's terms in a readable fashion without dumbing it down takes a master's touch. That is what you find in this book. Using the rest of scripture to interpret Paul's letter as well as Biblical and modern history, Dr. Boice sheds new light on the ancient text. Yes, there are a plethora of books coming out that tear down sacred texts, but the reader would be far better off diving into an intelligent work like this that illuminates. ****

I have been a fan of Dr. Boice's writings for many years. His expositions and explaination of Biblical passages are very edifying for both laymen and ministers alike. As a proponet of reformed theology and a seeker of the righeousness of Jesus Christ I would highly recommend this book and others authored by Dr. Boice.

We're using this book to suppliment the study materials we are using for our Ephesian's study series. The material is well organized and the study is quite effective and challenging!

Format: Paperback
I read this commentary because of the author. Previously I read James Montgomery Boice’s commentary on Phillippians which I thoroughly enjoyed. I also enjoyed this commentary on Ephesians. It is a good expositional commentary and ideal for devotions through the book of Ephesians. I appreciated that it was practical. I have seen other reviews saying that it’s not exegetically detailed but I think it is not fair to expect an exegetical commentary when the intent of the commentary is expositional. While there are other commentaries on Ephesians that are more exegetical than this one (I think the best is still Harold W. Hoehner’s exegetical commentary) I think it is still worthwhile for the exegete to consult Boice’s work to help with thinking about the application and delivery of the content of Ephesians to God’s people. Boice did bring out good lexical insight from the meaning of certain Greek terms in ways that are very insightful. Read this to warm your hearts for God in light of what He has done for us in saving us.

I have often found commentaries to be long & dry. James Montgomery Boice fills the pages with Bible based truth and insights that are so easy to take away with you. The truths are practical and he makes it clear how they can be applied. I have read a number of his commentaries and look forward to reading others.
