The Letter to the Philippians (Pillar New Testament Commentary Series)

The Letter to the Philippians (Pillar New Testament Commentary Series)

$44.99

Hardback

In this clear, concise exegetical commentary, G. Walter Hansen offers rich exposition of the text of Philippians as well as wisdom and maturity in its application. In so doing he emphasizes partnership - the social and corporate dimensions of community - in the progress of the gospel.

After a moderately sized bibliography, the introduction takes up the historical setting of the city of Philippi, the nature of the letter, the occasion of the letter, and a preview of two key themes, the gospel of Christ and the community in Christ. The community itself considers Philippians in the light of these themes, considering the greetings, reports of gospel ministry, recommendations of two Christ-like servants, and other emphases on the gospel and on partners or servants.

Commendations:
'With themes and emotions so varied - thanksgiving, joy, rivalry, friendship, suffering, being with Christ, etc. - the letter to the Philippians needs a commentator with a sure grasp and a warm heart ... Hansen writes with admirable clarity and simplicity, even when he is unpacking notoriously complex matters ... This commentary is must reading for pastors, students, and scholars as they try to think Paul's thoughts after him.' (D. A Carson, from the Preface)
