Ephesians and Colossians (Paideia Commentaries On The New Testament Series)

Ephesians and Colossians (Paideia Commentaries On The New Testament Series)

Charles H Talbert

$59.99

Paperback

Ephesians and Colossians is the first of eighteen volumes in the new Paideia commentary series. In this inaugural volume, leading New Testament scholar Charles Talbert distills interpretive insights for students in theology, biblical studies, and religion.

About the Series: The Paideia Commentaries on the New Testament focus on the final form of each New Testament book, attending to historical setting, canonical context, and contemporary hermeneutical concerns. Authored by a diverse team of illustrious scholars, Paideia commentaries add fresh insight to consensus scholarship, focusing especially on how these theological texts use narrative and rhetorical strategies from the ancient educational world to form and shape the reader.

The Paideia series approaches each text in its final, canonical form, proceeding by sense units rather than word-by-word or verse-by-verse. Each sense unit is explored in three sections:

  • (1) introductory matters,
  • (2) tracing the train of thought,
  • (3) key hermeneutical and theological questions.
The commentaries shed fresh light on the text while avoiding idiosyncratic readings and attend to theological meaning without presuming a specific theological stance in the reader. Aimed squarely at university and seminary students, this series is eminently useful for professors and preachers. It will also be of interest to theological libraries.

Hagner, George Eldon Ladd Professor of New Testament, Fuller Theological Seminary"This commentary is vintage Talbert. He is an expert at summarizing in a clear but comprehensive manner interpretations of biblical books that serve the intended audience (especially students) well. The attempt to address 'rhetorical units' of these two letters, rather than each verse, helps readers comprehend more easily the message of the biblical text. The presence of some illustrations, sidebars, and outlines is also a great help. They provide a convenient and useful supplement to the detailed explanation of the text. If subsequent volumes in this new series are done as well as this inaugural commentary, this series will indeed be very attractive to students, seminarians, and pastors."--Ronald D. Witherup, SS, Provincial of the US Province of Sulpicians
