    In this Bible study on Colossians Wiersbe speaks of the power of words. He reminds the reader that for every word in Mein Kampf 125 people died in WWII. "...the tongue has the power to direct, the power to destroy and the power to delight. The tongue is but a little member in our bodies, but it can accomplish great things for good or evil."

    Even as an accessible, non-technical commentary, this one is rather poor. Wiersbe misreads the Colossian context, especially in regards to the 'Colossian Heresy.' He does not respect the boundaries of pericopes, often breaking key passages in strange places. Occasionally he reads evangelical hot topics into the text where they are not warranted. But I gave him two stars because he does get somethings right.

He reads Colossians with the eye of a preacher and is able to call attention to the supremacy of Christ. When I was tempted to just write the whole thing off, I would come away from a passage with one or two insights. What was particularly helpful to me in using this book was that each section is punctuated by questions for reflection or group study. I read this while prepping a Bible study and while I generally didn't find his questions usable for my context (after all he misreads the text), they were a good foil to use in my own preparation.

    Wiersbe's BE series of devotional commentaries are good for individual devotional material or small group study. They are neither technical nor in-depth, but Wiersbe gets at the heart of the biblical passages and uses reflection/discussion questions to prompt the reader(s) to think about how the Bible applies to his or her life. The theme of "Be Complete" -- both the book of Colossians and this devotional commentary -- is that Christ is everything we need.

The theme of "Be Complete" -- both the book of Colossians and this devotional commentary -- is that Christ is everything we need. We do not need to add anything else, in fact we cannot add anything else, in order to be acceptable to God in Christ. All of God was in Jesus and when we are in Jesus, that's sufficient -- no rituals, no good works, no secret knowledge, no regulations make us any more acceptable and, in fact, they are followed in direct disobedience to the simple gospel of putting one's entire trust in Jesus' redeeming work.

    My Sunday school class studied the book this spring. We used the discussion guide that went along with the book and found the study guide very frustration with redundant questions, etc. Wiersbe's book was easy to read with lots of good quotes. Colossians may be my favorite book in the Bible, so this was another good commentary. The major point Wiersbe makes is that we are complete in Christ, but there is often the temptation to look for spiritual fulfillment from sources other than God.

"Right doctrine should lead to right living." This was a biggie: "False teachers do not take their message to all the world. They go where the gospel has already gone and try to lead believers astray." "Paul did not ask for the prison doors to be opened, but that doors of ministry might be opened."

    I've read a half-dozen Bible commentaries and studies from Warren W. Wiersbe and generally liked them. But this was not one of his best. It felt like he was stretching a few of the chapters to fill the book out to its 176 pages. Still some good nuggets and very accessible, but not as good as his other stuff had led me to expect.

    Good in depth commentary Reading Be complete helped me to understand the letter of Paul to the Colossians better, as Wiersbe wisely and in details help to observed and understand each verse. Reading this book had helped me in preparation for my Bible study.

    A great study of the Head of the Church I found this to be an excellent study about Jesus and His Completeness. I would recommend this book to believers young and old. Both new and mature.

    A great study guide when dealing with people and their fragile emotions/self perceptions. Dr. Wiersbe helps us to understand that while the world see perfection as without something - GOD views it as having something. That something is Jesus!

    This was a good refresher for me, as I had been involved in an intense study of Colossians a couple of years ago.

    A great help when studying Colossians. I like his way of bringing an overview to the book.

    couldn't even finish this one - too deep and intellectual for my feeble brain.

    Great reading I learned a lot about myself in grace and in repeated sinning. The author books are all great inspiration. Read them.

    A great study of Colossians. Took me a while to finish because I got distracted by other books. Would recommend it to anyone that studies the Bible!

    I did this book with my Ladies Bible study at church. It was sound teaching with good study questions. I didn’t love it, it seemed a little outdated and I didn’t agree with everything little thing he taught. But I would be willing to give another one a try.
