In a world with a religion to meet every diverse mood, today's Christians are no different from those of ancient Colossae. Fighting Jewish legalism mixed with Eastern philosophies and Gnosticism, Paul called on the Colossian church to stop partaking in the misguided religious practices of their day and to find the one true faith.

In his profound, scholarly letter, Paul warned the people of their heretical practices. His prevailing theme is the preeminence of Christ. Paul knew that if the Colossians grasped even a glimpse of the fullness of God, they would seize hold of their true identity and stop looking elsewhere for spiritual fulfillment.

In this Bible study based on his original commentary on Colossians, seasoned pastor Dr. Warren W. Wiersbe challenges twenty-first-century believers in another age of "religious tolerance." Using Paul's response to heresy as one example, you will learn how to respond diplomatically yet boldly to the falsehood that aims to corrupt our faith today.

    Warren Wiersbe is an exceptional Bible Commentator, I purchased

    Warren Wiersbe is an exceptional Bible Commentator, I purchased Bible study software that includes Be Series of Old Testament and New Testament Commentaries. Examples are: 1 Corinthians Be Wise, 2 Corinthians Be Encourages etc... He comments on all chapters and sections of the word and provides a wonderful commentary for individual or group study.

    Someone is going around giving one-star reviews to all of Warren

    Someone is going around giving one-star reviews to all of Warren Wiersbe's books; I really don't care what their motive is, however I do want all interested readers to know that Mr. Wiersbe's books, especially the BE series are full of insight, application, and truth from God's Word.
