I like Speyr's commentaries because they focus in strictest objectivity on the Word being revealed in each word of each verse immediately under consideration. This style helps her see Christology gathering up every anthropological statement and the Trinity gathering up every christological statement. Speyr is unrelenting in bringing everything back into the triune God. All is unified in the unity of the Trinity: "that you may be filled with all the fullness of God" (Eph 3:19).
This particular book is the translation of the second revised edition called Der Epheserbrief published by Johannes Verlag in 1983. It contains minor stylistic revisions of the first edition which was called Kinder des Lichtes published by Johannes Verlag in 1950. The commentary was dictated to Hans Urs von Balthasar (1905-1988) while Speyr was in meditative contemplation, which easily takes the reader into the sphere of prayer.
