The Paul's Letter to the Philippians (NICNT)
Fee, Gordon D.
A scholarly and readable study of Paul's letter to the suffering community of Christians in Philippi. New Testament scholar and textual critic Gordon D. Fee offers us the newest volume in the New International Commentary on the New Testament (NICNT) series, working directly from the Greek text, with comments from the New International Version (NIV). He provides us with an insightful comparison of Philippians to two well-known types of letters in the Greco-Roman world, friendship letters and letters of moral exhortation, and masterfully sets the letter to the Philippians within the context of the first century. His introduction includes information about the occasion, authenticity, and theological contributions of Philippians. Fee also offers scholarly insights which resolve many of the formal and structural issues that have long puzzled New Testament scholars.
