    Excellent, insightful commentary on Colossians and Philemon by a veteran NT scholar Beale, as one familiar with his work would suspect, brings the reader s attention to the Old Testament background of these books, especially Col This alone is worth the price of the book and establishes this commentary as essential reading for those interested in these Pauline letters See Criswell Theological Review for a fuller review.
