Endorsements & Reviews

“[This commentary series] is aware of church teaching and practice, makes reference to the lectionary, and offers abundant cross references to papal statements and other Catholic resources pertinent to the meaning of a specific biblical passage or theme. The subject here is the theologically rich letter to the Ephesians. Williamson . . . provides a thoughtful commentary on the text, including helpful leads on the meaning of some challenging passages . . . for contemporary faith.”
-Donald Senior, CPThe Bible Today

“While the author does due diligence with respect to key interpretive questions, the focus of the series is on ‘the meaning of the text for faith and life.’. . . Dozens of photographs and ‘Biblical Background’/’Living Tradition’ sidebars present perspectives–often from patristic and papal sources–typically absent from standard commentaries on such pertinent topics as slavery, spiritual warfare, and household affairs.”
-Patrick GrayReligious Studies Review

 “An engaging, conservative Catholic treatment of Ephesians.”
-Ray Van Neste, Preaching

“In several sidebar discussions and throughout the text, Williamson provides incisive discussions of Paul’s conception of the church’s spiritual enemies. The book is a model of fair and concise treatment that is theologically compelling and textually very helpful. . . . [This volume is] highly readable as [the author] mix[es] reliable interpretation, clear prose, and keen pastoral insight. [It] will be of great benefit to pastors and teachers across Christian traditions.”

-Timothy Gombis, Interpretation
