From the Cover of the Print Edition

Nothing cripples a church’s effectiveness like internal strife. In Philippi, Paul addressed a congregation whose internal strife was compounded by opposition and suffering from without. Paul’s strategy was to write them a letter of friendship and moral exhortation, reminding them of their “partnership in the gospel,” their mutual suffering for the cause of Christ, and their need to “stand firm in one spirit.” His approach and counsel can serve us well today.

In this warm, well-written study of Philippians, readers will find an introduction that discusses the letter’s occasion and purpose, authorship, and other background information, as well as its important theological themes. Passage-by-passage commentary follows that seeks to explain what the letter means to us today as well as what it meant for its original hearers.

Students, pastors, Bible teachers and everyone who wants to understand Paul’s message for the church will benefit from this excellent resource.
