An imaginative and provocative attempt to bring our 21st century postmodern world into conversation with Paul's letter to the Colossians.

Have we really heard the message of Colossians? Is it just another religious text whose pretext is an ideological grab for dominating power? Reading Colossians in context - ancient and contemporary - can perhaps give us new ears to hear.

In this innovative and refreshing book, Brian J. Walsh and Sylvia C. Keesmaat explain our own socio-cultural context to help us enter into the world of the New Testament, and get a sense of the power of the gospel as it was addressed to those who lived in Colossae two thousand years ago. Their reading presents us with a radical challenge from the Apostle Paul for today.

Drawing together biblical scholarship with a passion for authentic lives that embody the gospel, this groundbreaking interpretation of Colossians provides us with tools to subvert the empire of our own context in a way that acknowledges the transforming power of Jesus Christ.
