For hundreds of years Christendom has been blessed with Bible commentaries written by great men of God highly respected for their godly walk and their insight into spiritual truth. The Crossway Classic Commentaries series presents the very best work on individual Bible books, carefully adapted for maximum understanding and usefulness for today's believers.

Christians throughout the centuries have marveled at the spiritual treasures in the apostle Paul's letters to the Colossians and to Philemon. Grand themes of the supremacy of Christ, the superiority of the Gospel over false belief systems, the joy of setting one's focus on things above, and the love-bonds between all followers of the Savior continue to inspire Christians today.

This classic commentary will encourage and equip all who desire a deeper walk with God and a growing faith in him.


J. B. Lightfoot

J. B. LIGHTFOOT (1828–1889) was an outstanding British New Testament scholar. He worked with F. J. A. Hort and B. F. Westcott at Cambridge University to produce a New Testament commentary based on a reliable Greek text. His work in demonstrating the first-century origin of the New Testament books helped demolish the Tübingen school of biblical criticism. Along with his Philippians, his commentaries on Galatians and Colossians/Philemon are still considered landmarks of biblical study and exposition.
