One of my summer courses is focused on Ephesians and I have to choose a commentary through which to work. The prof has given four options and I was wondering what your opinions are: which of the four would you choose and why?
- Best, Ernest. Ephesians. ICC. (Edinburgh: T. & T. Clark, 1998).
- Hoehner, Harold W. Ephesians. (Grand Rapids: Baker, 2002).
- Lincoln, A.T. Ephesians. Word Biblical Commentary. (Dallas: Word, 1990).
- O’Brien, Peter T. Ephesians. Pillar. (Grand Rapids: Eardmans, 1999).
I’ve never worked in Ephesians, so I don’t know which way to go on this one. I like the ICC, but it’s so technical oftentimes I tire of trudging through the discussions. I will likely choose from among the other three.
So, which would you choose?
