This expositional commentary on what James Montgomery Boice calls Pauls great and very personal letter to the Philippians combines careful scholarship and clear communication in a way that is informative and helpful.
Based on messages preached at Philadelphias Tenth Presbyterian Church, these expositions on one of the Bibles most joyous books are ideal models for preachers and excellent resources for teachers of classes and small groups.
From serious Bible students to interested laypersons, this book will appeal to a wide range of readers. In addition to explaining the meaning of the text verse by verse and section by section, the author relates the texts concerns to the world in which we live, the life of the church, and the realities of the Christian life. He occasionally interrupts the verse-by-verse commentary for more extended treatment of key themes.
An earlier edition of this commentary, based on the KJV text, was published by Zondervan in 1971. This edition has been totally redesigned and uses the NIV.
