The world of the Colossians was surprisingly like ours. Where many now
turn to the new age movement, the Colossians turned to the Greek and
Roman mystery religions. The question today is not whether we will be
spiritual but what form our spirituality will take.
Paul writes of the adequacy, completeness and superiority of Christ
alone. This study will better equip us to 'give a reason for the hope
that is within us' and enable us to share our faith more effectively
with those seeking to satisfy their spiritual hunger.
