Peter N.
I really enjoyed Hodge's commentary on Ephesians. His attention to detail, especially the way to translate various Greek constructions, was great. Unlike many modern commentaries however, he does not leave out application. He exhorts us to grow in Christ throughout the book. Of course, there were some disagreements I had with him at points. But he is a good corrective to a lot of modern sterile commentaries.
Hodge is clear, concise, and yet also digs into the Greek words for those interested. I appreciate that he explains some differing interpretations but at times it would have been nice to have had more of that. All in all, very excellent as a reference and very excellent for reading.

“Reason, tradition, speculative conviction, dead orthodoxy, are a girdle of spider-webs. They give way at the first onset. Truth alone, as abiding in the mind in the form of divine knowledge, can give strength or confidence even in the ordinary conflicts of the Christian life, much more in any really "evil day.” 0 likes
“All her triumphs over sin and error have been effected by the word of God. So long as she uses this and relies on it alone, she goes on conquering; but when any thing else, be it reason, science, tradition, or the commandments of men, is allowed to take its place or to share its office, then the church, or the Christian, is at the mercy of the adversary. Hoc signo vinces—the apostle may be understood to say to every believer and to the whole church.” 0 likes
