The "Heavenly Citizens" series serves as a tool to help the Christian understand not only what the Bible teaches us, but also how to study the Bible. Explaining what the Bible teaches is like giving someone a fish to eat. Teaching him how to study the Bible is like teaching someone how to fish so he can feed himself. Both approaches are essential to developing spiritual maturity."Colossians" is the seventeenth volume in the "Heavenly Citizens" series. The Apostle Paul begins this letter with a greeting from God the Father. It is written to the Church of Colosse, located on the eastern border of the Roman province of Asia (modern Turkey).Colosse had once been the major city of eastern Roman Asia. But when Rome took over, the trade route through Colosse was moved to Laodicea, and Colosse quickly became a has-been hick town of little consequence. Nonetheless, God doesn't despise small things, no matter how small they may be; so He sent the Gospel there and a church was established.The landscape and culture of Roman Asia in Bible times was pervaded with the "mystery religions", of which "Gnosticism" was one. To the Gnostics God could not have a human son because... Well, that is a long story, one which is to be found inside this seventeenth volume of our "Heavenly Citizens" series. So come inside and read all about it!Unlike the churches in Galatia and the Church of Corinth, the Church of Colosse was not steeped in heresy. It was a small and fledgling church at the time of this letter. The believers were growing in the Lord, but they needed help from the outside, if they were to grow any further in the Word of God. That had to do with inside concerns for this immature church. Other spiritual dangers from outside also threatened the church. This too is a long story, so we invite you to come inside and read all about it as well.Microwave Bible might be quick, but it never can nourish a growing boy into a spiritual man of God. So for a thorough understanding of these issues, we invite you to come inside and join the Bible class with us. We plan to delve into each and every detail and get to the bottom of it. After all, we do want our church today to be spiritually vibrant and fecund, don't we? What better way to accomplish this, than to enjoy a thorough study of the Apostle Paul's "Letter to the Colossians".The approach for "Colossians", and for every volume in the "Heavenly Citizens" series, is to teach the student the meaning of Scripture. We also teach him or her how to study the Bible on his/her own. We do this in two ways: we provide a few rules by which to govern our Bible study, and we demonstrate by example how to study the Bible. Experience is an outstanding teacher. In our books we practice the rules for Bible study. By walking through the Bible with us, the reader experiences firsthand what our method of study is like.We believe the student will come out of our studies with both an understanding of the Bible and the ability to truthfully understand the Bible on his/her own. The path lies before you. Walk through the gate and join the journey with us! And may the blessings of the Lord Jesus Christ be yours in abundance.

About the Author

A resident of West Monroe, Louisiana, Randy Green grew up in Seymour, Indiana, spent twenty years in the Chicago area, was a pastor in Illinois, Indiana, Massachusetts, South Carolina, and Louisiana, and is now self-employed as a full-time author. He has a Bachelor of Arts degree in Biblical Studies from Northeastern Illinois University in Chicago, Illinois, and a Master of Divinity degree from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School in Bannockburn, Illinois.

Rev. Green is the author of the series "Heavenly Citizens in Earthly Shoes, An Exposition of the Scriptures for Disciples and Young Christians". He has already completed seventeen volumes of the "Heavenly Citizens" series, each volume covering a book of the Bible-Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, Deuteronomy, Joshua, Matthew, Acts, Romans, 1 Corinthians, 2 Corinthians, Galatians, Ephesians, Philippians, Colossians, Hebrews, and Revelation. The "Heavenly Citizens" series is the most ambitious and thorough Bible exposition project being undertaken by one author today. It is must reading for every serious Christian who wants to be a disciple of Christ.

Additionally, Rev. Green is the author of "Kingdom of Eretz", a Biblical allegory of the Church Age. He also has a four volume daily devotional set titled "In Season and Out of Season 1-4, Spiritual Vitamins: Winter/Spring/Summer/Autumn".

Jesus insisted, "You must be born again" [John 3:3]. Liberal Christians won't go there; evangelical Christians stop there: Jesus starts there! A baby is BORN crying, being spoon-fed and having his diaper changed; but he cannot continue like that throughout his life! At some point this baby grows to a toddler...a boy...a youth...a man. A Christian is one who is BORN AGAIN. So why in even "good" churches do newborns not grow into Biblical manhood? This book is one installment of my attempt to rectify this spiritual anomaly. Read on, dear Christian, read on.
