    One thought on “Philippians”

    1. My most helpful technical commentary on this book, and I must say the most helpful edition in my handful of commentaries from the World Biblical Commentary series. They can be overly technical and not very insightful, although always thorough. But this is a great contribution that is very good. I would not recommend though for most layperson studies, because of the technical and textual information that could bog down someone without any training in Greek.
