An excellent commentary by Godon Fee on Paul's letter to the Philippians. Fee has done a good work on the exegesis of the book. He shows us the context in which the book was written, getting to the heart of the church scene at Philippi, and shows how different passages relate to that 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 cultural background of Philippi set within the Roman Empire. There is also a beautiful exposition of Christ's humiliation and exaltation in Philippians 2:5-11.

A very good, detailed commentary. Perhaps the best commentary on Philippians at the present time.

Fee's commentary is thoughtful and helpful for the pastor. Among the commentaries that have come out recently, it is not as technical as the one by Peter O'Brien, but it is more thorough than that by Moises Silva. Evangelical readers will appreciate Fee's pastoral and devotional comments. The weakness of Fee's commentary is its overt egalitarianism and slight misunderstanding of the cultural context of friendship in the ancient Greco-Roman world. For input on this context, search for works by B. W. Winter. Fee's commentary fills a needed place in Philippians commentaries.

When I was studying Philippians at college this was the commentary that was required reading when studying text for exegesis (a fancy way of explaining what it means). The commentary itself has a very thorough introduction to the book and this is very useful as it gives great detail about the history of Philippi (which has quite a lot of bearing in what Paul writes) and of course a situation he was writing into. Any technical details with translation are well dealt with and the text is more that adequately explained with useful additional information in the footnotes. This is a very useful commentary and if I could give it another half star I certainly would.
