Item description for Commentary-Colossians & Philemon (NIV Application Comme) by David E. Garland...

This part of the NIV Application Commentary Series helps readers learn how the message of Colossians and Philemon can have the same powerful impact today that they did when Paul first wrote them.

Publishers Description
Most Bible commentaries take us on a one-way trip from the twentieth century to the first century. But they leave us there, assuming that we can somehow make the return journey on our own. In other words, they focus on the original meaning of the passage but don't discuss its contemporary application. The information they offer is valuable -- but the job is only half done! The NIV Application Commentary Series helps us with both halves of the interpretive task. This new and unique series shows readers how to bring an ancient message into a modern context. It explains not only what the Bible meant but also how it can speak powerfully today.

Reviews - What do customers think about Commentary-Colossians & Philemon (NIV Application Comme)?

A practical, understandable guide with wide application  Jul 13, 2009
I am a lay pastor with a modest amount of classroom training. This series is very useful for anyone - whether they are a degreed preacher, someone like me, or an individual studying God's Word for themselves. I like the practical, personal aspect of the commentary and that fact makes them very useful. So far, I have only used the commentary on Philemon, but have several other volumes which I have perused at some length. The original context commentary is outstanding. I agree, however with Mr. Choy in his comments about the bridging contexts, and like him, have figured out a way to overcome and use them. I have found the contemporary significance section great for concluding my sermons. I plan to purchase all the volumes over time.
Excellent resource for anyone preaching God's Word  Jun 9, 2009
I only give it 4 stars rather than 5 because of the layout. Garland gives you three sections for each biblical section; (1) original meaning, (2) bridging contexts, and (3) contemporary significance. These sections are great except they are not broken into preaching portions. If you preach a paragraph at a time you'll find yourself flipping back and forth often. This is not a big deal, however, as you can just use a small sticky note for each section and move them as needed.

Other than the format Garland's work is excellent. He goes appropriately into the Greek language in a helpful way, brings up significant background information and really helps the reader think through the contemporary significance. I use this often when preaching Colossians and highly recommend it.
Series is over all great.  Oct 20, 2007
The NIV application series is overall great. This particular one by Garland is wonderful. Also owning the Word Biblical Commentary of the same books by O'Brien (which is a fairly technical commentary), gives me greater appreciation of Garland's ability to touch on the technical but also bring things back into the text in order to make it applicable to people. This Particular one is the only one of the series that I have, but I know Garland did the one of Mark and I have used it and some others in the series. They are all great. Recommend for any level of study.
