Title: Christ All Sufficient: An Exposition of Colossians
Author: Brian G. Hedges
Publisher: Shepherd Press (September 30, 2016)
Formats: Paperback, Kindle
Christ All Sufficient is a relatively quick read if you don’t linger too long to contemplate the truths pointed out by author Brian G. Hedges. The front cover declares this book to be an exposition of Colossians, which it is, but don’t let that scare you: this is not a technical commentary on the epistle, but a conversational working through of Paul’s letter. This is something I find to be of immeasurable benefit. Hedges writes with the heart of a pastor seeking to make Scripture accessible and alive to all, not just the scholars. He also brings out how this epistle is relevant and applicable to our lives today.
I think Christ All Sufficient and books like it make for tremendous resources to begin assisting in Bible study. More technical and in-depth commentaries will of course help the student explore the Greek in great detail, but Hedges’ book will help maintain a focus on the heart of the text.
Overall, I’d give this book a 5/5 rating.
