Sprinkled with cherished and memorable verses, Paul’s letter to the Philippians is for many a favorite book of the Bible. Written from prison, it serves as Paul’s missionary report and thank you to a faithful church, as well as a warm pastoral exhortation to make the advancement of the gospel their top priority. Paul models and calls for joy in the midst of suffering, warns against dangerous false teaching, and calls for Christian unity grounded in the example of the Lord Jesus.

In a day often marked by selfish ambition, spiritual laziness, disunity, and joyless living, Philippians contains an eminently practical message for contemporary Christians. Exploring the links between the Bible and our own times, Frank Thielman skillfully draws out the timeless truths of this loving letter in a lucid and powerful way.

It is encouraging to find a commentary that is not only biblically trustworthy but also contemporary in its application. The NIV Application Commentary will prove to be a helpful tool in the pastor’s sermon preparation. I use it and recommend it.

Charles F. Stanley, pastor, First Baptist Church of Atlanta

The NIV Application Commentary series doesn’t fool around. It gets right down to business, bringing this ancient and powerful Word of God into the present so that it can be heard and delivered with all the freshness of a new day, with all the immediacy of a friend’s embrace.
