No one I know has a greater command of teaching practical godliness and experiential Christianity than Joel Beeke. Drawing upon Paul’s prayer for the believers in Colossae, Beeke utilizes his exceptional exegetical abilities to lay open this text of Scripture, showing its primary relevance for the daily life of every believer. In so doing, this work will promote greater growth in grace and knowledge of Jesus Christ and deepen your spiritual life so that you may walk in a manner worthy of the Lord (Col. 1:10). This book should be a staple in your personal library regarding what constitutes genuine growth in biblical, reformed spirituality. - Dr. Steven J.
