On June 30 I launch my new book: Ephesians: A 12-Week Study. It is one of the new additions to the outstanding study guide series from Crossway Books: Knowing the Bible. I am excited about this study!
The key idea in Ephesians revolves around Eph. 2:10: “We are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.” From start to finish, Ephesians reveals that the church – and every believer – is a work of God beginning in eternity past and finishing in the day of glorification. God creates the church on the basis of Christ’s work on the cross, and all blessings toward believers come through our mysterious union with Christ. The power Christ gives is for both the heavenly and earthly realms, as he calls us to walk in all of the supernatural provisions he has made for us. These provisions affect marriage, family, work, personal ethics, membership (4:25!), giving to the poor, overcoming bitterness, ceasing of slander, purity and sexual morality, church growth, officers in the church, and much more! A deep understanding of Ephesians is essential to Christian maturity and church ministry.
A few of you have offered to help promote the book. Let me tell you some ways you can help: Like the book on amazon.com; (see the link above). Between now and August 30, please use the hashtags #ktbeph, #ephesians, and #biblestudy in order to create traffic for the book on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook. I will be making posts you can repost, retweet, share, and like. I soon hope too to blog through the book.
Also, to one organization I am pitching a proposal for a project to equip many under-resourced churches with the resource at little to no cost. Pray for favor and funding for this endeavor.
Thank you for following A Man from Issachar and my musings. You have been a blessing to me.
