“Innovative and thought–provoking, it is an excellent exposition of a broadly convincing reading of the letter. Anyone who uses it will learn a great deal. This is an outstanding book on Philippians. Fee’s absolute determination to explain how every bit of every sentence works, and then to show how that works within the larger whole, is alone worth the cover price. And he does this beautifully so that both those with and those without Greek can see what is going on. He then applies what he discovers in each passage in committed and pertinent summaries of points for today’s church.”

“With this commentary Gordon Fee confirmed his standing as one of the best New Testament commentators of our generation. Text is clear, uncluttered and a pleasure to read. He has written with parish ministers in view, as well as scholars, and the result will surely be welcomed by both classes of readers.”
“Exhaustive and exegetical, but eminently readable.Serious Bible students will find much help here in understanding Philippians. This is one of the best commentaries on this vital epistle.”
An excellent commentary by Godon Fee on Paul's letter to the Philippians. Fee has done a good work on the exegesis. He shows us the context in which the book was written, gets to the heart of the church scene at Philippi, and shows how different passages relate to the context. The main themes of the letter are brought out - the theme of joy, Paul's friendships, the Philippians generosity in sending Paul a gift, the danger of division amongst individuals within the church, the background of Philippian culture set within the Roman Empire. There is also a beautiful exposition of Christ's humiliation and exaltation in Philippians 2:5-11. In summary then, a good, detailed commentary of the epistle. Perhaps the best commentary on Philippians at the present time.
