Item Description...
F.F. Bruce shares the riches of a lifetime of Pauline studies in this commentary on Paul's letter to his beloved church at Philippi. Bruce's practical and theological exposition, helpfully based on the NIV, steers readers to better appreciate the contemporary relevance of Paul's wisdom and confidence in the all-sufficiency of the Gospel, and to share in Paul's joy of ''knowing Christ.''

More About Frederick Fyvie Bruce

Frederick Fyvie Bruce Frederick Fyvie Bruce (F.F. Bruce) (12 October 1910 – 11 September 1990) was a Biblical scholar and one of the founders of the modern evangelical understanding of the Bible. His first book, New Testament Documents: Are They Reliable? (1943), was voted by the American evangelical periodical Christianity Today in 2006 as one of the top 50 books "which had shaped evangelicals".

Bruce was born in Elgin, Moray, in Scotland and educated at the University of Aberdeen, Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge and the University of Vienna. After teaching Greek for several years, first at the University of Edinburgh and then at the University of Leeds, he became head of the Department of Biblical History and Literature at the University of Sheffield in 1947. Aberdeen University bestowed an honorary Doctor of Divinity degree on him in 1957. In 1959 he moved to the University of Manchester where he became Rylands Professor of Biblical Criticism and Exegesis. In his career he wrote over 40 books and served as editor of The Evangelical Quarterly and the Palestine Exploration Quarterly. He retired from teaching in 1978.

Bruce was a distinguished scholar on the life and ministry of Paul the Apostle and wrote several studies, the best known of which is Paul: Apostle of the Free Spirit (published in the United States as Paul: Apostle of the Heart Set Free). He also wrote commentaries on several biblical books including Romans, Acts of the Apostles, 1 & 2 Corinthians, Galatians, the Gospel and Epistles of John, and the Epistle to the Hebrews.

Bruce was in Christian fellowship at various places during his life, though his primary commitment was to the Open Brethren among whom he grew up. He enjoyed the fellowship and acceptance of this group, though he was very much a maverick in relation to his own personal beliefs. He never accepted the dispensationalism and pretribulationism usually associated with the Brethren, and he was also an advocate of the public ministry of women – something that Plymouth Brethren would still disapprove of today. Most of Bruce's works were scholarly, but he also wrote several popular works on the Bible. He viewed the New Testament writings as historically reliable and the truth claims of Christianity as hinging on their being so. To Bruce this did not mean that the Bible was always precise, or that this lack of precision could not lead to considerable confusion. He believed, however, that the passages that were still open to debate were ones that had no substantial bearing on Christian theology and thinking. Bruce was honored with two scholarly works by his colleagues and former students, one to mark his sixtieth and the other to mark his seventieth birthday. He was elected a Fellow of the British Academy, and served as President of the Society for Old Testament Study, and also as President of the Society for New Testament Study. He is one of a handful of scholars thus recognized by his peers in both fields.

Frederick Fyvie Bruce was born in 1910 and died in 1990.

Solid But Not My Best FF Bruce  Apr 14, 2007
FF Bruce continues to be a favorite NT scholar of mine, but I was not too please with his treatment of Philippians. But the reader can find some helpful material in it.
Short, easy to read & technically accurate  Oct 24, 2005
This exegetical gem summarizes the key points in plain english for almost any pastor or teacher/student to use. Yet he carefully deals with the exegetical issues so that one gains insight from nuances of the Greek text. For example, in Philippians 3 Bruce gives footnotes for the term translated as refuse or dung in most versions. There are several key points like this for every paragraph throughout the book....but they are always footnoted at the end of each section so it is easy to read the regular comments...actually a joy in comparison to many commentaries which have a lot of technical information on almost every line. It reminds me of Moo's massive work on Romans (NICNT) except much shorter and stripped down to just the meat. He explains the Greek word and demonstrates it's significance in the footnotes for the paragraph. The regular comments are basically free of Greek terminology, so anyone can catch what he's saying. Yet as a pastor who exegetes the Greek NT for sermons on a regular basis I found his comments are as insightful as any other commentary I've read on Philippians. So if one is short of time and unable to read the longer commentaries like Fee or Silva, then this concise volume will help you identify and assess and interpret the key issues for every paragraph.

So the way I use this volume is for the exegetical portion of sermon development when I do not have a lot of time. If one is behind in their sermon development he can help you catch up with a minimum of reading (ever been there?). For application, he has many kernals that are good, but his phraseology doesn't preach as well as some other commentators like Thielman or Motyer who seem to provide 'preachable' terminology more frequently in my experience. For more indepth exegetical treatment this volume is a bit scant, so I turn to O'Brien's NIGTC and Fee's NICNT for that...which are both quite a bit more indepth than Bruce. But can one afford to ignore Bruce on a topic? I think not. The right place to use this book is for the exegesis portion of sermon/teaching development only when one is short on time and cannot read the more indepth exegetical works.

He handles things objectively and insightfully....and when the other scholars vary from his view, I've learned to think carefully about why because they may not be correct when at odds with this brilliant scholar. For the pastor who doesn't read Greek, this commentary is exceptionally helpful and should be one of the most referred to volumes while working through Philippians.

It is a well done and to the point book that I recommend if you are studying Philippians or Paul's life and ministry.
