BOOK DESCRIPTION

It is not surprising that Galatians, the most controversial and explosive of Paul’s letters, was Luther’s favourite book of the Bible – ‘my own epistle to which I have plighted my troth.’ But it was Ephesians to which John Calvin reputedly turned for his choice as the book which meant most to him.

Certainly, together, these letters plumb the depths of the gospel and soar to the heights of the grace of God which it reveals. Galatians anchors Christian living in justification by grace; Ephesians teaches the significance of union with Christ and its practical implications. The study of these two books and the appreciation of their message is calculated to encourage true knowledge of God and obedient Christian living.

For these reasons William Hendriksen’s masterly commentaries on these two epistles are here combined in one volume. All the characteristic marks of his work are present: a thorough introduction to each epistle; a comprehensive outline showing the structure of Paul’s thought; a careful translation of the text which brings out the flavour of the original. Dr Hendriksen’s commentaries are scholarly, yet are written with a warmth and lucidity which comes from his pastoral concern to introduce Bible readers, students, and scholars of all kinds to the truth which Scripture unfolds.

The combination in one volume of the commentaries on Galatians and Ephesians provides the reader with a valuable resource-book for a lifetime of Bible study.
