This guide is an indispensable tool for working directly with the Greek text. Harris provides guidance for nearly every lexical or syntactical question one could think to ask. He goes phrase by phrase, giving parsings and laying out all of the syntactical options while interacting with the best sources. It is really unparalleled for what it does. What it lacks is any historical background or theological reflection. However, this is not strictly a commentary, so that is not its aim. The homiletical outlines and suggestions at the end of each section are surprisingly helpful for preparing to preach, as are the bibliographies for further study. Again, for those considering purchasing, the purpose for this guide is to help you make decisions about the Greek text. It will be of little use for those without Greek. I received a free review copy from B & H without any expectation of a positive review.

Then I turn to my teacher and former colleague's commentary, though it is nearly entirely constrained by syntax and grammar. Murray Harris, Exegetical Guide to the Greek New Testament: Colossians and Philemon. If you can read this commentary and understand what he is saying, you are educated in exegesis. [Full Review]
