Scholarly, insightful, and helpful commentary.
July 29, 2013
F. F. Bruce again produced a well-researched and significant study of the Apostle Paul and his writings. The volume is well indexed, detailed in its analysis of texts, and insightful as to the original purpose of the letters as well as their application to our day. The work provides an excellent foundation for teaching as well as preaching from these Pauline letters.
As soon as I received FF Bruce's commentary, I put it to use in a men's Bible study I'm leading in Ephesians. It is clear and concise and covers the major theological, and exegetical topics with great care and knowledge. This is a great resource.
This has turned out to be a great book. The bulk of the text is great commentary on the English text, but there is also a lot of in-depth commentary on the greek text for those who are interested in it.
If you only own one commentary on Colossians, this would be a good one to have. On the other hand, I am currently taking a Colossians exegesis class, and I found this volume of little help for the more intricate details of the Greek text. He added little to the discussion that I could not find in other commentaries. I do enjoy most of what Bruce wrote, but I felt that a lot of this commentary was rehashing what had already been written. He does include an extensive helpful historical introduction to the setting in which Paul is writing at the beginning of the book.
