The Epistle to the Colossians
Hamilton Smith (1862-1943), born in Barnes, Surrey, started work in the office of his uncle's building firm. By 1901, married and with a young family, he had retired from the building trade and entered full-time upon the task of building up the church of God. His personal ministry was delivered in the United Kingdom, but his written ministry is still read worldwide. Along with H P Barker, A J Pollock, J T Mawson and F B Hole he frequently contributed articles to "Scripture Truth" magazine, many of which were later published in books by the Central Bible Truth Depot. His written expositions of Scripture are brief: in keeping with a desire "to be nothing and to give Christ all the glory". Yet they are clear and very much to the point: "We are to speak as those who, by grace, know the certainty of the truth they proclaim." He is probably best known for his Old Testament character studies and New Testament outlines. The present volume consists of a verse-by-verse study of the Epistle to the Colossians, with its practical instruction for the body of Christ on earth linked to its Head in heaven.
