Ephesians presents readers with a volatile mix of assurance, exhilarating worship, and forceful exhortation—a bracing challenge to today’s church. The letter convinces Thomas R. Yoder Neufeld that the grace-gift of faithfulness leads to worship. Power, peace, and new creation are gifts of grace equipping the church to participate in God’s reconciling embrace.
This commentary guides readers to a life-changing encounter with Ephesians, probing interpretations, refreshing Christian teaching, and calling everyone to “walk” accordingly, with a song in heart and throat.
"Gives penetrating challenges to Anabaptist and mainline pastors and laity. Yoder Neufeld's deep love for Ephesians is evident throughout. His writing on the much-debated Household Code is the best I've seen. He takes the armor in Ephesians 6 as positive action to powerfully equip the church for waging God's justice and peace." —Marva J. Dawn, Spiritual Theology, Regent College, Vancouver
"Explores lofty confessional peaks and rich fields of practical application. Deftly handles even difficult passages, blending careful scholarship with a gospel interpretation that is provocative, fresh, and trustworthy. Encounter with God's boundless grace leads individuals and the church to become agents of salvation, peacemaking, and hope." —J. Nelson Kraybill, President, Associated Mennonite Biblical Seminary, Elkhart, Indiana
