An Introduction to the Theology of Colossians and Philemon by Kevin W. McFadden

Is our hope in the gospel of Christ sufficient for our every need? After reflecting on this question during periods of difficult earthly circumstances, Paul wrote two letters to the church at Colossae to express the hidden hope “laid up for you in heaven” (Colossians 1:5) and found in the person of Christ. 

In this volume of the New Testament Theology series, author Kevin W. McFadden focuses on the specific teachings of Paul to examine the theology and themes of Colossians (walking in Christ) and Philemon (welcoming our brothers). While reading this comprehensive yet concise study, believers will learn what it means to live a Christ-centered life as they explore Christ as hope, our knowledge of God, and our life above in heaven and here on earth.
