Thomas Nelson Colossians & Philemon: Word Biblical Commentary [WBC]

In this commentary, Peter T. O'Brien offers an exegetical, theological and analytical commentary based on the Greek text of Colossians and Philemon. Introductory essays provide background on Colossae, the threat to faith of the "Colossian heresy"; "Paul's handling of the Colossian philosophy and themes such as handling of the Colossian philosophy and themes such as "Christ the Lord in Creation and Redemption" or "Freedom from Legalism". In addressing Philemon, O'Brien examines the theological issues of slavery and personal reconciliation between believers and traces Paul's pastoral attention between Philemon and his escaped and newly converted slave.

O'Brien is succinct and easy to read. This is an excellent volume. I use it for the class I teach on these books.
