In Philippians, scholar and Pastor Dennis Johnson provides readers with a magisterial exegetical treatment in expository form Paul's tiny but powerfully inspiring epistle. The advance of the gospel and its relation to suffering, self-centredness versus self-sacrificial service, the basis of assurance in salvation, interpersonal conflict and true contentment are all topics that Paul explores in this epistle and Johnson further unpacks for his readers passage-by-passage.
The truth revealed behind the phrase "for me to live is Christ" transforms our responses to present imperfections and future hope. Johnson's commentary - grounded in pastoral application - is ideal for sermon preparation and devotional reading.
"Dennis Johnson's Philippians is a treasured contribution to P&R's Reformed Expository Commentary series. Not only does Johnson's experience as a preacher and teacher of preachers make these messages wonderful models of exposition, but also his expertise in biblical theology permeates every page. The Christ-centered focus is beautifully and powerfully interwoven throughout." - Bryan Chapell
