In the letter to the Colossians, Paul offers a compelling vision of the Christian life; his claims transcend religion and bring poli-tics, culture, spirituality, power, ethnicity, and more into play. This exegetical and theological commentary by Scot McKnight delves deeply into Paul's message in Colossians and draws out the theology that underpins it.
McKnight interacts closely with the text of Colossians itself while bringing the best of biblical scholarship to the table. He focuses on reading Colossians in the context of Paul's other letters, his theology, and his mission to preach the gospel to the Gentiles. Crafted specifically for preachers and teachers, this engaging and accessible commentary offers fresh light on Colossians.

"Scot McKnights commentary on Colossians offers everything one could want: a lively and readable exposition of the biblical text, with helpful observations on Greek grammar and translation; familiarity with primary sources that illumine the ancient context of this letter and the situation that evoked it; a wide-ranging acquaintance with issues in recent scholarship on Pauline theology; and sensitivity to the epistles theological claims and themes. Those committed to a careful study of this epistle will find McKnight a wise and judicious guide."
"McKnights conservative approach to Paul incorporates insights from a broad spectrum of new approaches to the apostle and his theology. His years of teaching Colossians in Greek provide detailed grammar analysis in footnotes. Insisting that Paul is above all a missionary and pastor for whom the new regime of King Jesus challenges the dark powers of imperialism, McKnights commentary offers pastors and other readers a fresh vision of church communities as the embodiment of Gods new creation."

"This commentary by Scot McKnight provides a rare combination of readability, attention to linguistic details, and knowledge of contemporary scholarship on the letter to the Colossians. It is obviously the product of a career of reflection on this letter."
