About "The Epistle to the Ephesians"
"Over and above the detailed exegesis, Professor Schnackenburg gives special attention to the history of interpretation of Ephesians, takes account of comparative material in the history of religion and, at the end of each section, shows how the findings of modern scholarship are relevant for today. The theological focus is the idea of the church, giving rise to ecumenical discussion about ministry and office in the church." "Throughout this study Schnackenburg emphasises the practical purpose of the text which has been handed down to us: a text written to lead Christians, who were in danger of conforming to their heathen surroundings, to a more decisively Christian attitude and way of life."--BOOK JACKET.
