"As we have come to expect from Beale's notable scholarship, this commentary on Colossians and Philemon models how thorough research, keen attention to Old Testament allusions, and meticulous study of the Greek text provide a basis for incisive, theologically grounded preaching and teaching. It should take its place on the shelf of definitive commentaries on the New Testament that truly help in these tasks."
--David E. Garland, Truett Theological Seminary, Baylor University

"Beale's commentary is everything we have come to expect from a veteran New Testament scholar. His exegesis is detailed and rich in insight and theologically profound, and his emphasis on the fulfillment of the temple in Colossians is illuminating. Old Testament allusions are mined, helping readers to see how Colossians and Philemon fit within the entire biblical witness. For pastors, students, and professors, Beale's work on these two letters will prove invaluable in their own research and study."
--Thomas R. Schreiner, Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

"This fresh and readable commentary on Colossians and Philemon is marked not only by impressive erudition and judicious judgment on complex issues but also by extraordinary theological depth. It breaks new ground, especially in the area of the biblical and Jewish roots of Paul's teaching in Colossians. Highly recommended for scholars and students as well as pastors and teachers."
--Brian S. Rosner, Ridley College, Australia

"Beale skillfully guides the reader through the many interpretive issues and uses the relevant historical information to illuminate the context of Colossians and Philemon. An outstanding exegetical commentary that I will gladly recommend to anyone wanting to explore the riches of these two letters."
--Clinton E. Arnold, Talbot School of Theology, Biola University

"Scholars and pastors will benefit immensely from this commentary. It will undoubtedly be a standard work, both in studies of Colossians specifically and in Pauline studies more generally."
--Eckhard J. Schnabel, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary
