Moo, Douglas J.

Grand Rapids, Mich.: Eerdmans, 2008 pp. xvi + 471. $44.00

Series Information
The Pillar New Testament Commentary


Description: 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 ó earmarks of the Pillar New Testament Commentary series as a whole ó Mooís 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.

Subjects: Bible, New Testament, Pauline Epistles, Philemon, Deutero-Pauline Epistles, Colossians, Literature
