    1. Incredible commentary that is useful and helpful to pastors and preachers who take the time to read it. Barth's work is one of the best in the Anchor series.



    2. Barth's commentary on Ephesians is an interesting animal. Barth argues for Pauline authorship, interacts heartily with the previous generations of NT scholarship (something I admire but which is less useful for me forty years on), and is wonderful for his description of OT usage in the book and relationships to Judaism. He has distinct conclusions that are not always supported by other commentators (read more than one commentary), but which are provocative in good ways. My liking and use of this [...]
