One of the Most Helpful Commentaries I Own Aug 20, 2006
For anyone doing exegetical work in Colossians and/or Philemon, this book is so helpful it's almost funny. He gives helpful answers to almost every question that the thoughtful exegete asks of the text, provided it is the meaning of the text that you are trying to unearth.
A unique tool for exegesis of Colossians May 3, 2000
For a number of years I have taught second year Greek for seminary students in Asian and Africa using Colossians as the set texts. Harris has in effect taken all of the work out of this effort for both the teacher and the student! This is good in that it frees up the student to focus on decision making about critical exegetical issues, to work on background issues and to grapple with application. One hopes that Harris or others will quickly finish other volumes in this series.
A Unique Tool For Serious Bible Students Mar 1, 2000
This is not a "commentary" in the traditional sense, but rather, as the title says, it is an "exegetical guide" to the translation and interpretation of Colossians & Philemon. Those who know Greek will find this extremely helpful in the evaluation of various exegetical options. For preachers or teachers, the homeletical support is excellent. This is a unique and extremely helpful tool for the serious bible student; check it out - you've not seen anything like it. I too am eagerly awaiting the next installment in the series!
A must have for pastors who are serious about the Greek NT. Oct 26, 1999
This book is a must have for pastors and students who are serious about studying the biblical text in its original language. Each section advances with an analysis of the paragraph structure, followed by a succinct, yet, very helpful analysis of each phrase of the Greek NT and culminating with a translation, an expanded paraphrase, suggested books and articles for further study and homiletical suggestions for preaching the text based upon sound exegesis. This volume is well worth while, I can hardly wait for the next installment in this series.
