(English) The Purpose of God: Ephesians
Paul's Epistle to the Ephesians is possibly best known for its description of the 'Christian's Armour'. The letter is a reminder to the churches in Asia to live out their faith in the light of the redemption unveiled by God. It is a section of scripture that has lastingly influenced many believers throughout church history. R.C. Sproul looks at the main issues raised in Ephesians. These include how to overcome idolatry, God's sovereignty in ALL things and the importance of fellowship and commitment to the church for healthy spiritual growth. There are many areas in the epistle, which have occasioned real dispute in the Christian church, and these are dealt with in Sproul's customary style - deeply profound and the ability to communicate illuminating truth. You will be surprised at how freshly Paul's understanding of the Christian faith leaps off the page.
While the majority of the world speaks and communicates in local languages, globalization has created one major stream of communication—English. It is the official language of 53 nations (one-fourth of the world), and it is estimated that another billion people speak it as their second language. Nearly 1,742,600,000 are able to access, read, and comprehend resources in the English language. That’s more than 1 out of 5 people in the world!
While we continue to pursue translation into key languages, many times it is more cost effective to make English resources available to pastors, seminaries, and those who train church leaders. Global English is vital for equipping Christian leaders with selected biblical works.
