In this clear, practical, and brief commentary, Anthony Thiselton brings to bear his intimate knowledge of Paul’s theology, the ancient city of Colossae, and Paul’s epistle to the church of that city. The commentary offers a new translation from the Greek, and explorations of an exegetical as well as a pastoral and practical nature on all passages of the book. Each section concludes with questions for further reflection.
To read this work is to read the work of a profound scholar and committed disciple. This book is as exegetically and historically clear-headed as it is pastorally sensitive. Profound and accessible, this commentary shows a master at work.
