Exhibiting the same brilliant exegesis and sound practical insight found in his previous works, noted commentator Douglas J. Moo, in this new volume, not only explains accurately the meaning of the letters to the Colossians and to Philemon but also applies that meaning powerfully to twenty-first-century readers. Moo attentively interacts with the Greek text of these letters and clearly explains the English text to a contemporary audience.

Informed, evangelical, methodologically astute, and displaying a careful balance between good scholarship and pastoral concern—earmarks of the Pillar New Testament Commentary—Moo’s Letters to the Colossians and to Philemon will offer insights to a wide range of readers, from teachers and students, to pastors and parishioners, to scholars and laypersons.

What’s more, with the Logos Bible Software edition, every word is essentially a link. That means that clicking on any Scripture reference brings you straight to the text of the Bible—both original language manuscripts and English translations. Double clicking any word—in any language—automatically searches your lexicons for a match, making accessing the Greek text of the New Testament faster and easier than ever. You can also search your commentaries for a particular verse or topic. Along with this, your titles will automatically integrate into custom reports, passage guides, exegetical guides, and the other advanced features of Logos Bible Software.

Author Bio

Dr. Douglas J. Moo, professor of New Testament, teaches at Wheaton College in Wheaton, Illinois. For over twenty years, his ministry was based at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School in Deerfield, Illinois. His academic interests revolve around the interface of exegesis and theology.

Dr. Moo seeks to model to students a rigorous approach to the Greek text that always asks the “so what” questions of ultimate significance and application. The Pauline and General Letters have been his special focus within the NT canon. In the next few years, he will be writing commentaries on Galatians and Hebrews, a Pauline theology, and a theological and practical book on creation care.

He has also been active in his local church, serving as elder most years, teaching and preaching to the church, and conducting home Bible studies. Also very rewarding has been his service on the Committee on Bible Translation, the group of scholars charged with revising the text of the NIV and with producing the TNIV.

He and his wife, Jenny, have five grown children.
