Another free Kindle book: “Ephesians: Understanding God’s Purpose for the Church”

April 23, 2017

If you are seeking a commentary on Ephesians, whether for your own personal study or for teaching others, you might consider the book Ephesians: Understanding God’s Purpose for the Church by Dr. Gregory Brown.  This book is now being offered FREE in Kindle format, though I do not know how long it will be free.

The Amazon page for the book says:

Many of the problems plaguing the church today, such as apathy, conflict, spiritual pride, and spiritual abuse, stem from a poor understanding of who the church is in Christ and God’s purpose for her. Whenever we don’t understand the purpose of something, we are prone to misuse it. No doubt the newly founded churches in Ephesus and Asia Minor struggled with a lack of understanding as well and, therefore, were plagued with many of the same issues.

Paul wrote the letter to the Ephesians to help them grasp God’s great plan for the church. He calls many of these insights “mysteries”—truths not fully revealed to past generations, but now fully revealed to us. He describes the church as seated in the heavenly realms in Christ. She is one body—including both Jews and Gentiles. She is God’s temple and his masterpiece. She is the bride of Christ and a soldier fighting demonic forces. The more the church grows in her understanding of God’s great purpose for her, the more she will live it out and display his glory. Let’s study the letter of Ephesians together with The Bible Teacher’s Guide.

Ephesians is certainly a profitable book to study and this text could be quite helpful.
