Many modern critics fail to understand Paul because they fail to understand Jesus, and therefore do not know Jesus as Paul knew him—a critical error. In Paul’s Joy in Christ: Studies in the Philippians, Robertson asserts that “nowhere is the tender side of Paul’s nature better shown than here: his delicacy, his courtesy, his elevation of feeling, his independence, his mysticism, and his spiritual passion.” This volume is derived from a series of lectures delivered at the Northfield Conference for Christian workers in August, 1913.

About Archibald Thomas Robertson
Archibald Thomas Robertson was born on November 6, 1863 in Chatham, Virginia, during the height of the Civil War. His family moved to Statesville, North Carolina, where he grew up. He was baptized in 1876 and immediately recognized God’s call to preach, and attended Wake Forest College. Upon graduation in 1885, Robertson entered The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, where he devoted himself to Greek studies under John Broadus. He was appointed Greek instructor as a student, and received his Th.M. in 1888. Robertson became an associate professor in 1890, and then served as Professor of New Testament Interpretation from 1895 to 1934. He devoted his life to preaching, teaching, scholarly activities, and giving public lectures, many of which have been reproduced in book form in this collection. He was a founding member of the Baptist World Alliance, and participated in numerous Bible conferences with Dwight Moody and F. B. Meyer.
