Preaching the Word Series: Colossians and Philemon
Colossians and Philemon: The Supremacy of Christ
R. Kent Hughes

Paul wrote to the Colossians to set forth the supremacy of Christ over pagan gods. This Preaching the Word commentary gets to the heart of Colossians.

In our day of massive religious confusion, the message of Colossians is among the most timely of all the New Testament books. Today many seek to exclude belief in God from every corner of modern life. Others flaunt "New Age" ideas about God and Christ which collide with the Scriptures. Confusion reigns and many are in need of knowing the Truth.

Christians in the first-century city of Colosse lived in a similar situation. Having first received the true Christian faith, they were soon confronted with distortions of the truth concerning the divinity and humanity of Christ and at the same time tempted by spiritual elitism. And the answers they needed are the same timeless answers that the modern world cries out to hear.

In this study of Colossians; Pastor R. Kent Hughes' expositions go to the heart of the text in Colossians, amplifying its message with memorable illustrations and penetrating insight. His careful exegesis and perceptive applications offer new understanding and promote lasting growth in Christ.

Here is a resource with solid help for pastors, teachers, and indeed anyone who wishes to understand or to communicate the grand message of the book of Colossians--a timely volume with enduring value of the Church of Jesus Christ.
