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.
