What a wonderful commentary! It belongs not only on the desk of every pastor but also on that of every reader of scripture. Hunsinger interprets Philippians in and with the church, drawing on the length and breadth of its confessional and meditative tradition in a deeply enriching way. His theological reflections are acute and insightful. His application of the text to the present is forthright and unashamed. This commentary opens the text afresh for us. It represents theological interpretation of scripture at its best.

—Mark Seifrid, professor of exegetical theology, Concordia Seminary

George Hunsinger’s commentary on St. Paul’s letter to the Philippians is, as one would expect, a challenging work of inspiring, compelling, and incomparable theological depth. In this Brazos series, which encourages biblical commentary through a doctrinal lens, one can see exactly how a truly ecumenical theologian thinking within the context of the Nicene-Constantinopolitan Creed weaves together deep trinitarian, christological, soteriological, and pneumatological insights with careful, nuanced, and thoughtful exegesis. On questions concerning how Paul understood Jesus’s lordship, his sacrifice for us on the cross, as well as justification and sanctification, readers will greatly benefit from Hunsinger’s learned interactions with John Calvin, Jonathan Edwards, Karl Barth, and T. F. Torrance, as well as F. D. E. Schleiermacher and Paul Tillich, together with a host of other prominent biblical scholars and theologians. This book is a must-read not only for biblical scholars but for systematic theologians. It is a model of how doctrinal theology functions properly in collaboration with biblical interpretation.

—Paul D. Molnar, professor of systematic theology, St. John’s University, Queens, New York
