The Apostle Paul was bound by prison chains when he wrote to the church at Philippi. Despite his loss of liberty, and opposition from fellow-workers, the letter radiates joy - joy that Christ was proclaimed, joy in fellowship with the Philippian Christians, and above all joy in Jesus himself. Motyer's area of focus is the links between OT and NT. He gives the reader a deep, insightful and personally meaningful discussion of the text, pointing out the meaning of the words in the original languages when it is helpful to our growth. Excellent for pastors and teachers as well as small groups interested in a good deep read of the book.
