New BECNT Commentary on Ephesians

Frank Theilman’s work on Ephesians in the BECNT series is out this month and is on sale at the WTS Bookstore (45% off).   Not a bad deal at all!  Here is a descriptor:

Product Description: Noted New Testament scholar Frank Thielman offers a substantive yet accessible commentary on Ephesians in this latest addition to the award-winning BECNT series. With extensive research and thoughtful chapter-by-chapter exegesis, this beautifully written commentary leads readers through all aspects of the book of Ephesians–sociological, historical, and theological–to help them better understand its meaning and relevance.

As with all BECNT volumes, Ephesians features the author’s detailed interaction with the Greek text. This commentary admirably achieves the dual aims of the series–academic sophistication with pastoral sensitivity and accessibility–making it a useful tool for professors, students, and pastors. The acclaimed user-friendly design includes shaded chapter introductions summarizing the key themes of each thought unit.

About the Author: Frank Thielman (PhD, Duke University) is Presbyterian Professor of Divinity at Beeson Divinity School, Samford University, in Birmingham, Alabama. He is the author of a number of books, including Philippians (NIVAC); Paul and the Law: A Contextual Approach; From Plight to Solution: A Jewish Framework for Understanding Paul’s View of the Law in Galatians and Romans; The Law and the New Testament: The Question of Continuity; and Theology of the New Testament: A Canonical and Synthetic Approach. He is also an ordained Presbyterian (PCA) minister.

Glad to know he supports Pauline authorship.  Here is a link to the outline and the introduction.

I am sure it would be a good supplement to this one (the work of another scholar whose work should not be quickly forgotten)!
