What is joy? And how can it be God's gift to suffer for Christ's sake? Join New Testament scholar Paul Barnett as he explores these questions while encouraging us to praise the one who promises to finish the good work he began in us. Barnett also leads us to consider afresh the concept of shining like lights and rejoicing, with both of these made possible only through the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ. Philippians and Philemon: Joy in the Lord is a clear and insightful commentary for today's challenging times.
