Come Alive: Philippians & Colossians (ePUB)
Author Talbot Davis
Set against the backdrop of the Roman world, Come Alive: Philippians and Colossians invites you into the real-life drama of the early church, clarifies your thinking about who you are and who Jesus is and reminds you of the supreme joy of knowing Him: the Son of God and the only authority in heaven and on earth.
Philippians and Colossians: on the surface, they are nice books filled with treasured platitudes for encouragement, relationships, and life.
The great temptation for modern readers is to read these books just that way: as a series of brilliant but disconnected sound bites.
But these two powerful letters are full of hidden treasures – treasures about who you are, who Jesus is, and why your identity can never be separated from His supremacy.
Set against the backdrop of the Roman world, where ideas were a dime a dozen, Come Alive: Philippians and Colossians will help you understand some of the false, competing claims that were being made about Jesus and remind you of the supreme joy of knowing Him: the Son of God and the only authority in heaven and on earth.
In these pages, you will:
- Uncover hidden treasures and see why these letters are so much more than a doctrinal statement or advice column
- Experience how Jesus exposes who we are so we can see who He really is
- Meet the quiet heroes of the early church and what they have to say about your role in the world
- Peel back the curtain on the lives of the first followers of Christ as they were working out the story of Jesus and the reality of their faith in real-time
Come Alive: Philippians and Colossians will invite you into the real-life drama and humanity of the early church and help you see how your story and Jesus’s story intersect today.
