Item Description...
Paul wrote to the Colossians to set forth the supremacy of Christ over pagan gods. This Preaching the Word commentary gets to the heart of Colossians.

Publishers Description

In our day of massive religious confusion, the message of Colossians is among the most timely of all the New Testament books. Today many seek to exclude belief in God from every corner of modern life. Others flaunt "New Age" ideas about God and Christ which collide with the Scriptures. Confusion reigns and many are in need of knowing the Truth.

Christians in the first-century city of Colosse lived in a similar situation. Having first received the true Christian faith, they were soon confronted with distortions of the truth concerning the divinity and humanity of Christ and at the same time tempted by spiritual elitism. And the answers they needed are the same timeless answers that the modern world cries out to hear.

In this study of Colossians; Pastor R. Kent Hughes' expositions go to the heart of the text in Colossians, amplifying its message with memorable illustrations and penetrating insight. His careful exegesis and perceptive applications offer new understanding and promote lasting growth in Christ.

Here is a resource with solid help for pastors, teachers, and indeed anyone who wishes to understand or to communicate the grand message of the book of Colossians--a timely volume with enduring value of the Church of Jesus Christ. Part of the Preaching the Word series.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Great Antecdotes!  May 11, 2009
Colossians and Philemon by R. Kent Hughes is a great Bible study tool explaining Paul's purpose for writing to the first century Colossians. But it's not merely an historical account and his main purpose is to show the relevance of this epistle to modern man. This he does beautifully through his exceptional antecdotes which lend clarity to the book.
Good Expostional Resource  Mar 19, 2009
This expositional commentary is helpful for pastors. Hughes' ability to be concise is a lesson and a tool. Additionally, Hughes salts his books with so many illustrations you almost have to have this just for this purpose!
Colossians  Mar 2, 2009
This is the best book I have ever read on the book of Colossians. The writer has a deep insight on the Christ set forth in this book. He explains very clearly the absolute deity of Jesus Christ as the sole expression of God to us in this age.

Solid Resource  Jun 17, 2007
I have quickly come to appreciate this series of commentaries/sermons as a great help in my sermon preparation from week to week, and for my own edification. I greatly appreciate the basic commitments of this series: that the Church should take Scripture seriously (their view on Scripture is solidly evangelical), and that verse-by-verse exposition and application is a phenomenal--if not the primary--way of engaging people with God's revelation and will.

Among the books in this series I have read, this one may not be the most helpful. Most every chapter was very helpful in gaining understanding of the text, and ways in which they may apply to the contemporary Christian. But there were times when chapters were predicable, though by no means unbiblical.

As a series I heartily recommend Preaching the Word, and if you are looking for a good "application" resource on Colossians and Philemon, this would be a great addition to your shelf.
