Colossians & Philemon (Two Horizons New Testament Commentary Series)

Colossians & Philemon (Two Horizons New Testament Commentary Series)

$39.99

Paperback
Colossians and Philemon have traditionally been overshadowed by other New Testament texts thought to express Pauline theology more clearly. In this notable commentary, however, Marianne Meye Thompson shows how these two epistles provide a unique formulation of the gospel in terms of creation and reconciliation rather than justification by faith. In Colossians she finds an overarching narrative of the Bible's grand creation-redemption story and an important emphasis on the relationship between creation and Christology, while her exploration of Philemon casts brighter light on the significance of Paul's familial metaphors for the church and the meaning of new humanity in Christ. Throughout her work on these two epistles, Thompson continually connects her insights to theological concerns, making this volume an excellent addition to the Two Horizons series.

- Publisher Seeking to bridge the chasm between academic biblical studies and systematic theology, this new series offers section-by-section exegesis in conversation with theological concerns.
