Philippians is considered one of Paul’s most encouraging letters. Mark J. Keown shows how Paul appeals to Christ’s 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 “radical generosity.”
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 Paul’s encouraging letter for believers today.
