From the Back Cover

Expert help for understanding the Bible

Each volume in the Understanding the Bible Commentary Series breaks down the barriers between the ancient and modern worlds so that the power and meaning of the biblical texts become transparent to contemporary readers. They present a careful section-by-section exposition of the biblical books with key terms and phrases highlighted and all Greek transliterated. Notes at the close of each chapter provide additional textual and technical comments for those who want to dig deeper. A bibliography as well as Scripture and subject indexes are also included. Pastors, students, and Bible teachers will find in this series a commitment to accessibility without sacrificing serious scholarship.

Ephesians, Colossians, Philemon discusses the origin, authorship, purpose, and contents of these New Testament letters. Scholarly yet easy to understand, this volume explores the nuances of Paul's messages to the church, which deal with many of the same issues faced by the church today.

Arthur Patzia is former senior professor of New Testament at Fuller Northern California and in retirement serves as an adjunct professor. A distinguished scholar, he is the author of several books, including The Making of the New Testament, The Emergence of the Church, and the Pocket Dictionary of Biblical Terms. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

About the Author

Arthur G. Patzia is Director of Fuller Theological Seminary's Extended Education Program in the San Francisco Bay Area. He is also an Associate Professor of New Testament.

A balanced commentary that is well written. Mr. Patzia is scholarly, but his writing style was easy to understand. In his attempt to give space to competing view points, he is very detailed. I had to read the book for a class, but I enjoyed it. It is a great reference book.
