Series Information
Evangelical Exegetical Commentary

Description: [This is a two-volume set.] Philippians is considered one of Paulís most encouraging letters. Mark J. Keown shows how Paul appeals to Christís exemplary acts of humility and sacrifice to encourage believers to live worthy of the gospel in every aspect of life. He draws attention to the pastoral heart of the imprisoned Paul, who warns the Philippians against false teachers while calling them to demonstrate their imitation of Christ through a commitment to mission and ďradical generosity.Ē Through rigorous examination of the original Greek text and engagement with the latest scholarship, Keown delivers an in-depth commentary on Philippians that captures the message of Paulís encouraging letter for believers today.

Subjects: Bible, New Testament, Pauline Epistles, Phillipians, Literature
