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 both 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 series as a whole --- 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.
Douglas J. Moo is Blanchard Professor of New Testament at Wheaton Graduate School.
The Pillar New Testament Commentary, designed for serious readers of the Bible, seeks above all to make clear the meaning of the text of Scripture as we have it. Writers of the PNTC volumes interact with the most important, informed contemporary debate yet avoid undue technical detail. Their ideal is a blend of rigorous exegesis and exposition, scholarship and pastoral sensitivity, with an eye alert both to biblical theology and to the contemporary relevance of the Bible.
Using the same brilliant exegesis and sound practical insight found in his previous work, Douglas J. Moo here not only accurately explains the meaning of the Letters to the Colossians and to Philemon, but also applies that meaning to twenty-first-century readers.
Moo introduces each book with a series of five similar questions: To whom was it written? Who wrote it? When? Why? and What? He then divides the commentary itself into Letter Opening, Letter Body, and Letter Closing for each book, addressing the introductory thanksgiving of Philemon as well. The volume ends with thorough indexes of names, subjects, scripture references, and extrabiblical literature.
Informed, methodologically astute, evangelical, and displaying a careful balance between good scholarship and pastoral concern, The Letters to the Colossians and to Philemon is readily accessible, offering something for everyone 2; teacher or student, pastor or parishioner, scholar or layperson.
