The fifth book in our Faculty Book Giveaway is Engaging Ephesians: An Intermediate Reader and Exegetical Guide by John DelHousaye, professor of New Testament. As Dr. DelHousaye recently explained, this book is different from a commentary in that it explains the phenomena of the text of Ephesians in a way that allows readers to work through and understand it on their own.
Engaging Ephesians explains the phenomena of the text of Ephesians in a way that allows readers to work through and understand it on their own. It is divided into fourteen sections, which allows it to correspond perfectly with the length of a semester and be adopted as a course textbook. At the head of each weekly section, significant individuals and key terms are listed and expounded upon in subsequent commentary. In addition, each chapter has a vocabulary list for all words that occur fifty times or less in the Greek New Testament. Also helpful are discussions on matters such as literary structure, rhetoric, semantics, and syntax. This reader-friendly guide allows readers to engage Ephesians in a deep, profound, and faithful manner.
