NIV Application Commentary: Philippians (Frank Thielman) / January 01, 1995
The letter to the Philippians is one of the most quotable and memorable of Paul’s epistles. Written from prison, Paul provides exhortation, theological instruction, and personal reports about his journeys, and conveys deep personal gratitude to the Philippians for their services to him.
In Philippians [NIVAC], top New Testament scholar Frank Thielman illuminates the instructional aspects from Philippians while also giving space for the deep relationship that existed between Paul and the Philippians to flow out of the text and to inform life application.
About the Series
This unique series shows readers how to bring an ancient message into modern context. It explains not only what the Bible meant but also how it can speak powerfully today. Therefore, the NIV Application Commentary Series helps with both halves of the interpretative task: exegesis and theological application.
Additionally, the unique reader friendly format and the direct pinning of the entire series to the NIV, make it exceptionally easy for non-specialist readers to follow and learn from.
Commentary authors will, at times, work with the original languages but complete explanations are always given in non-specialist language; and they serve the exclusive function of further explicating the text at hand. The same approach is taken with all complex issues and interpretive matters. The focus is on learning and applying and every tool used by the commentators serves this end.
