I'm Excited About Colossians...
and you can be too! Paul's letter to the Colossians takes us to the heights of revealed truth about Christ perhaps like no other New Testament book. While Ephesians lifts our minds to heavenly places, Colossians reveals to us Who holds the universe together -- Christ Jesus. "The doctrine of the Person of Christ is here stated with greater precision and fulness than in any other of St. Paul's epistles" (J.B. Lightfoot). This letter can be read in around 20 minutes yet will seed a lifetime of revelation.
In this book, the author reveals how Colossians speaks to him of truth and practice. Some may term it a "devotional commentary," but he sees it is a journey of inspiration and exploration.
The book is loaded with so much truth that very few of us can take it in on our first reading. If you read it straight through, go back and read a chapter a day. If on the other hand you read a chapter a day, start reading it again at your own pace. You will be amazed at what you discover on your second time through.
Also available in Spanish as "Me Entusiasma Colosenses".

What others say...
This book is written in a very practical, loving and Biblically sound writing style. Clearly drawing from years of experience, this author utilizes several methods to illustrate and clarify Paul's teachings in Colossians and Philemon. Dr. Peter Wade has thoughtfully selected many keywords to help the reader remember and apply what the Apostle Paul taught. This book is very easy to read, yet at the same time it is obvious that a great deal of scholarly effort went into its composition. The author quotes verses from the entire Bible to emphasize and bring out his points. He also repeatedly weaves together how the epistles of Colossians and Philemon can be incorporated into our modern lifestyles. There is also a helpful index in the back of the book for looking up which scripture were used in the text. The content and style of this book is designed to benefit all believers; this includes new believers, Biblical scholars, and anyone in between. This book has so much depth and breadth to it that I'm intending to read it again. -- BT MTh, Hawaii
As an author of books written for the Christian to learn a deeper understanding of God's Word, Peter Wade succeeds by teaching Biblical principles in a manner that I can grasp and put into action. Every principle is fully explained with scripture illustrated by Old Testament history and New Testament truth. I have learned to put my faith into action with the help of each one of these books. Peter Wade's style is direct, brief, witty, completely comprehensible, and above all--truthful to the Word of God. -- W.G., San Jose, CA.
