In the first century, the apostle Paul started a congregation from Jews, Godfearing Gentiles and pagans in the town of Ephesus. Cultural diversity in the congregation hindered their ability to get along. Pauls letter to the Ephesians is relevant for modern believers, who are fractured by religious and social differences. Strategically the book of Ephesians describes the transition from Judaism to Christianity--from a single nation to a multinational family of believers following God. Author Harry Brewer writes in layman's terms with an orderly approach to each segment of Paul's practical letter. Paul exhorts this eclectic mix of new believers to unity, based on: Doctrine Ethical living Following God's Spirit The author highlights keys on how to live together in harmony as members of God's heavenly family. Brewer, a graduate of Biola University, has led home groups of Christian and Jewish believers over the past 20 years. In 2001 he published a devotional commentary on the Old Testament book of Ruth. Simplicity, accuracy and insight into the biblical passages characterize his writing. Using this style people naturally participate in home group and Bible study discussions.
