In this fine new commentary on Paul's letter to the Philippians, Stephen Fowl notes that for the great premodern commentators of the Christian tradition, the literal sense of Scripture is always regulated by theological concerns. Thus, unlike commentaries that simply append theology to historical criticism, Fowl's volume displays disciplined attention to the text of Philippians in ways that enhance rather than frustrate theological inquiry. While Fowl engages the great scholars of the past, John Chrysostom and Thomas Aquinas among them, he also draws a novel theology of friendship from Paul's letter and unpacks how the teachings of Philippians might be embodied today by Christians in the West.

    Great commentary on Paul's letter to the Philippians. The author (Stephen E. Fowl) focuses on what the original text says and what it is saying to the original readers (the Philippians).

    I can't say enough about the value of this book in its commentary on the text of Philippians. Lexical and syntactical issues are not discussed in tremendous detail (consult O'Brien in the NIGTC series to take care of essentially all of those), but this commentary absolutely shines in the explanation of the text's meaning, both for the original audience and then in drawing out the timeless truths found in each passage. You can tell the author spent a long time thinking carefully through the text and he explains it very, very well. I don't recall anything on introductory matters, and I can't speak for the author's view of Scripture overall or how Philippians relates in detail to many other books of the Bible. But in dealing with the text of Philippians, the author has done a fantastic job and Bible teachers would be very well served to use this in their preparation to teach and preach.
