Philippians (Two Horizons New Testament Commentary Series)

Philippians (Two Horizons New Testament Commentary Series)

$39.99

Paperback
This fine new commentary on Paulbs letter to the Philippians bridges the gap between the horizons of exegetical work and of theological reflection. Noting that for the great pre-modern commentators of the Christian tradition, the literal sense of Scripture is always regulated by theological concerns, Fowl aims to present historical problems in ways that enhance rather than frustrate theological inquiry. Unlike commentaries that simply append theological reflection to historical-critical notes, Fowlbs volume displays disciplined attention to the text of Philippians while treating theology as a form of exegesis in its own right.

- Publisher In this fine new commentary on Paul's letter to the Philippians, Stephen Fowl notes that for the great premodern commentators of the Christian tradition, the literal sense of Scripture is always regulated by theological concerns. Thus, unlike commentaries that simply append theology to historical criticism, Fowl's volume displays disciplined attention to the text of Philippians in ways that enhance rather than frustrate theological inquiry.While Fowl engages the great scholars of the past, John Chrysostom and Thomas Aquinas among them, he also draws a novel theology of friendship from Paul's letter and unpacks how the teachings of Philippians might be embodied today by Christians in the West.
