The Epistle to the Philippians is imbued with Paul's deep affection for a congregation that weathered the storms of suffering, sacrifice, and struggle as it supported his mission to evangelise the Gentiles. This book highlights the unique bond between the apostle and his most beloved church, united in the fellowship of the gospel. 240 pages, from Good News.


The four chapters of Philippians contain some of the most-quoted and beloved passages in Scripture: "For me to live is Christ, and to die is gain," "Rejoice in the Lord always," "Do not be anxious about anything," "I have learned in whatever situation I am to be content." Yet in our familiarity with the Apostle Paul's words to his favorite church, we must be careful not to miss the deeper themes, says commentator R. Kent Hughes. Themes such as the robust fellowship and unity that Paul shared with the Christians at Philippi based on their mutual commitment to the gospel.


Theirs was a partnership we rarely see today-between people who were bound together in the great cause of unfurling the gospel flag in cities, countries, and other cultures-undergirded by Paul's central call to let their "manner of life be worthy of the gospel of Christ." It was a joyous cause, a unity, a manner of life that should be ours as well.


The characteristics of such true Christian conduct and spirit are detailed throughout this epistle and this commentary, with every aspect ultimately centering in Christ. Hughes's faithful exposition and application will reveal how much Philippians is about Christ and about people in Christ Jesus, as well as about people who are in the joyful fellowship of the gospel together because they are in Christ. Part of the Preaching the Word series.
