Reviews - What do customers think about Colossians and Philemon (Two Horizons New Testament Commentary)?
A Good Complement Mar 23, 2006
Thompson's commentary is, on both Colossians and Philemon, solid though not groundbreaking. She admits to difficulties in attributing Colossians to the Apostle Paul, but in the long run claims that it "can still best be explained as written or authorized by Paul during his own lifetime." The real contribution of this volume is the sections on the theology of each letter -- which in each case is near the length of the commentary proper. Especially enjoyable is her treatment of the church as "new humanity" in the theological section on Philemon. This volume won't replace those of Bockmuehl, Dunn, O'Brien, or Wright, but it worthy to stand beside them.
