''One of the best recent commentaries on any biblical book from any perspective. This commentary succeeds so well because of its exegetical sanity, vigorous style, and theologically sensitive applications. Every Christian - student, pastor, and scholar - can likewise benefit from Fee's theologically rich applications of each major paragraph in the letter. . . This commentary represents believing biblical scholarship at its best: uncompromising in its scholarly rigor, motivated by love for God, and dedicated to the edification of the church.'' --Westminster Theological Journal
''Fee, who is also the general editor of this fine evangelical commentary series, brings his erudition and theological depth to a study of Paul's letter to the Philippians. This commentary will be particularly useful to students of the New Testament who want to wrestle with Paul's letter in depth and with the help of a traditional and competent guide.'' --The Bible Today
''What makes this particular commentary useful in the parish is its hermeneutical approach. At the end of every section in the commentary, Fee includes pastoral applications of the material he has just examined. An extensive bibliography and copious footnotes are also helpful to readers who want to further their understanding of the various components of this valuable letter.'' --Currents in Theology & Mission
