Who are we to be in this materialistic age? Our identity, Ephesians tells us, can only be found in Christ. The spiritual blessings that we receive can only be found in him. We are chosen and raised in him. We form together to be the church in him. Ephesians paints for us a glorious picture of who we are and what the church is meant to be as we seek to teach others with these timeless truths.
"A closely argued, warmly applied letter from the heart of the Apostle to the Gentiles, reflected in Simon's careful analysis for the Bible preacher or teacher. His love of the book and understanding of its relevance for today comes through clearly in this important contribution to the Teaching the Bible series."
David Jackman & Adrian Reynolds, series editors
