Editorial Reviews

Review

"Bryan Chapell has done an outstanding job of making Paul's letter to the Ephesians both clear and compelling. He handles both difficult doctrines and difficult points of application with both conviction and love. This book will be profitable for both lay people and clergy. I highly recommend it." --Jerry Bridges, author, Trusting God, The Pursuit of Holiness, and Respectable Sins

"Bryan Chapell is one of the most influential homileticians, preachers, and evangelical leaders in the church today. In Ephesians, we see the fruit of his preaching available now for us all. Over the last several years, Bryan Chapell has helped to shape a generation of preachers who are committed to the gospel and to the art and craft of preaching sermons that set forth the Word of God with power and practical application. All this is on display in this fine commentary and I greet this publication with enthusiasm." --R. Albert Mohler, Jr., The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

"With a sharp exegetical mind and a soft pastoral heart, Bryan Chapell shows how Paul's letter to the Ephesians was written with the hope that Christians would become individuals full of the knowledge of God so that we would become a community full of the knowledge of God. . . . It is only when the weightiness of God rests on the church and spills out from the church that the world is changed. Chapell's commentary on Paul's letter is a great reminder that the ultimate factor in the church's engagement with society is the church's engagement with God." --Tullian Tchividjian, Pastor of Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church and author of Unfashionable

6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By William D. Curnutt TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on April 17, 2011
Format: Hardcover
Dr. Bryan Chapell presents us with a wonderful commentary on the book of Ephesians. In a very readable way he will bring to the forefront the truth of the Mystery of the Gospel as revealed by the Apostle Paul in this text. That mystery is that the Gospel was not just for the chosen people of Israel but that it was also for the Gentiles and now the Gentiles are adopted sons into the family of God along with the children of Abraham.

Many themes are addressed, but the main theme is that Paul the Apostle was "chosen" by God to bring the Gospel to the Gentile world. This would no doubt confound the Jews of his day, whom he was excelling in becoming one of the most honored of their intellectuals. At least he was until the road to Damascus where the Lord confronted Paul, converted him to Christianity and instilled in him a drive to bring the Gospel to everyone he met, Jew or Gentile.

Dr. Chapell preached this series of sermons and then worked to put them in a commentary form so that we could further enjoy the study and time that he put in to learning about Paul, the Ephesians and the message. As I said earlier this text is very readable by both pastoral staff and lay people. If you are working to prepare a series of lessons for you Adult Sunday School class, or youth or even for a preaching series this book will be wonderful addition to you readings on the book of Ephesians. Of course spend most your time in the word and in prayer allowing the Holy Spirit to teach you, but then you can turn to Dr. Chapell's work and feel as though a dear friend has just guided you through a clear explanation of the book.

I very much appreciated Dr. Chapell's way of explaining to us the love that Paul has for the Lord and for his work of bringing the Gospel.

12 of 17 people found the following review helpful By Jacques Schoeman on September 4, 2009
Format: Hardcover
'Thus, in His wisdom, God also grants us blessed revelation of His grace.' p 37

The early church was let in on the plan of salvation. The purpose in revealing this "mystery" which was once hidden in the secret counsel of God's will was to create a new people in Christ, re-created by the Spirit. God's purpose in calling Paul to be an apostle to the gentiles is 'not incidental' to the history of redemption, according to Bryan Chapell. What may be easily discerned is that for Chapell, not only the apostle, but the whole church has its origin in Christ, and, therefore, a greater contextual application is surmised. This opening round rings true and through great exposition Chapell stirs up our confidence in Pauline authorship and Paul's claim of apostleship. Chapell fearlessly solicits our reason to recognize that our own calling, as the people of God and the body of Christ, is effected by the divine will alone. 'One might think that the special calling of Paul denies similar confidence to us.' p 5 Using the apostle as initial reference, permit Chapell to let you in on a pleasant surprise, and set the tone for Reformed soteriology.

Following his advocacy of Paul, Professor Chapell looks to the majestic opening verses, 2-14, which is one sentence in the original Greek. It speaks quintessentially of redemption decreed, accomplished and applied as originating in the eternal realm within the inter-trinitarian Godhead.

This commentary is a great source for preaching and teaching material dealing with Paul's letter to the church at Ephesus. I utilize it on a regular basis.
