Marianne Meye Thompson
— Fuller Theological Seminary
“Scot McKnight’s 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 epistle’s theological claims and themes. Those committed to a careful study of this epistle will find McKnight a wise and judicious guide.”
Pheme Perkins
— Boston College
“McKnight’s 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, McKnight’s commentary offers pastors and other readers a fresh vision of church communities as the embodiment of God’s new creation.”
James W. Thompson
— Abilene Christian University
“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.”
Scottish Bulletin of Evangelical Theology
"Scot McKnight brings the valuable experience of many years work and a thorough grasp on Pauline research to his commentary on Colossians. . . . In his interpretations, McKnight works in insights from Paul’s contemporary culture without letting them overwhelm his attention to biblical background."
Journal of Theological Studies
“This carefully produced commentary . . . is one to possess and read carefully for learning of deep things in the Letter to the Colossians.”
