Therefore, brothers and sisters, you must be patient as you wait for the coming of the Lord.
7 Therefore, brothers and sisters, you must be patient as you wait for the coming of the Lord. Consider the farmer who waits patiently for the coming of rain in the fall and spring, looking forward to the precious fruit of the earth. 8 You also must wait patiently, strengthening your resolve, because the coming of the Lord is near. 9 Don’t complain about each other, brothers and sisters, so that you won’t be judged. Look! The judge is standing at the door!
10 Brothers and sisters, take the prophets who spoke in the name of the Lord as an example of patient resolve and steadfastness.

This work is exactly what is says it is, a handbook on the Greek text, one which will enable intermediate students to deepen their grammatical knowledge, one that will give advanced students information on the textual and grammatical issues in the text, and one that will assist all readers in grasping the semantic structure and meaning of the text. Dr. Larkin has done an excellent piece of work, fully informed by semantic, grammatical, and commentary discussion of Ephesians, adding to the high quality and usefulness of this series. We are all in his debt for this work.

This volume on Ephesians is a welcome addition to Baylor's fine series of handbooks on the Greek text. Linguistically informed and exegetically oriented, Larkin has provided an excellent resource for readers of the Greek text of Ephesians, whether student, professor, or exegete.
