Review: Christ-Centered Exposition: Exalting Jesus in Ephesians by Tony Merida

If you are looking for a commentary that is not written for the biblical scholar, this and the rest of this series may be the right thing for you. The author covers the background to Ephesians, its author and recipients to start the reader off with a general idea of the place and people. The text of Ephesians is then covered in some depth and not without mention of some the differences of opinion among the various biblical scholars. The explanation and discussion moves forward at a comfortable pace, for me at least. If you want more information a bibliography of the author's sources is available at the end of the text, as is a list of biblical references. I found the reading easy and the comments helpful. The end of each chapter has some questions for reflection or discussion making the book useful for private or group study alongside the text of Ephesians.

I enjoyed this book and would recommend this to you.
