The letters to the Colossians and to Philemon pose to us a number of intriguing questions, both from the text itself and the historical circumstances of the letters themselves. Did Paul write Colossians? Does it belong in the canon if not written by Paul? What is the Colossian Heresy? Was the command for wives to obey and husbands to love just for that culture? Or is it for all believers? Why does Paul seem to treat slavery so lightly in Philemon?

In Colossians & Philemon [NIVAC] award winning commentator David E. Garland shows how the answers to these questions will determine how to understand many, many other historical, theological, and social questions both in our own world and how we understand the world and context of the early church and Paul himself. With a wealth of knowledge, Garland skillfully interprets and applies these important New Testament documents to our lives today.

About the Series
This unique series shows readers how to bring an ancient message into modern context. It explains not only what the Bible meant but also how it can speak powerfully today. Therefore, the NIV Application Commentary Series helps with both halves of the interpretative task: exegesis and theological application.

Additionally, the unique reader friendly format and the direct pinning of the entire series to the NIV, make it exceptionally easy for non-specialist readers to follow and learn from.

Commentary authors will, at times, work with the original languages but complete explanations are always given in non-specialist language; and they serve the exclusive function of further explicating the text at hand. The same approach is taken with all complex issues and interpretive matters. The focus is on learning and applying and every tool used by the commentators serves this end.
