Review:

This is an excellent addition to Banner of Truth's "Let's Study" series. Like all the others this book seeks to combine explanation of the text with application. Mark Johnson admirably succeeds in this clear and concise commentary. He shows that Paul was writing to a relatively young church that was being destabilised by a mixture of influences. The solution? Paul brings back the focus onto the person and work of the Lord Jesus Christ.

This is not so much a verse by verse commentary but rather a section by section Bible study. The author is very good at bringing out the key teaching without becoming too bogged down in the minute details of the text. As such the book will benefit individual Christians who like to use such a Bible aid during their quiet times.

This book will also be helpful to those preparing Bible studies on Colossians or Philemon. At the end of the book there is a Bible study programme including suggested questions as well as helpful advice for how to lead a Bible study.
