REC: Ephesians

By Chapell, Bryan


“Bryan Chapell has done an outstanding job of making Paul’s letter to the Ephesians both clear and compelling. He handles both difficult doctrines and difficult points of application with both conviction and love. This book will be profitable for both lay people and clergy. I highly recommend it.”

– Jerry Bridges

“Bryan Chapell is one of the most influential homileticians, preachers, and evangelical leaders in the church today. In Ephesians we see the fruit of his preaching available now for us all. Over the last several years, Bryan Chapell has helped to shape a generation of preachers who are committed to the Gospel and to the art and craft of preaching sermons that set forth the Word of God with power and practical application. All this is on display in this fine commentary and I greet this publication with enthusiasm.”

– R. Albert Mohler, Jr., The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

“The church in America today is indeed facing a crisis and the answer is not structural renovation (as we are often told) but spiritual renewal. With a sharp exegetical mind and a soft pastoral heart, Bryan Chapell shows how Paul’s letter to the Ephesians was written with the hope that Christians would become individuals full of the knowledge of God so that we would become a community full of the knowledge of God. In order for the church to live in this dark world as Christ’s transformed, light-bearing community, our vision of God must be enlarged. For, it is only when the weightiness of God rests on the church and spills out from the church, that the world is changed. Chapell’s commentary on Paul’s letter is a great reminder that the ultimate factor in the church’s engagement with society is the church’s engagement with God.”

– Tullian Tchividjian, Pastor of Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church and author of Unfashionable

“Bryan Chapell is one of the outstanding expositors of our day, and this new commentary on Ephesians reflects his love for scripture and his pastoral mind and heart. Chapell approaches the text from the perspective of the preacher-teacher, yet his treatment is thoroughly grounded in the finest New Testament scholarship. Any pastor planning to preach or teach in Ephesians should consider this new volume a ‘must have’ resource for study.”

– Michael Duduit, Editor, Preaching magazine, Dean, College of Christian Studies, Anderson University, Anderson, SC
