Overview
Paul's letter to the Philippians may aptly be seen as a meditation on joy. But Paul's joy, rather than the result of ease and comfort, is a contentedness made pure through suffering. Ralph Martin draws out these themes.

Publishers Description
Paul's letter to the Philippians may aptly be seen as a meditation on joy. But Paul's joy, rather than the result of ease and comfort, is a contentedness made pure through suffering. He has "learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want." Ralph Martin shows how these themes flow from and emulate Christ's humility, lead to spiritual fellowship among believers, and contribute to spreading the gospel. The original, unrevised text of this volume has been completely retypeset and printed in a larger, more attractive format with the new cover design for the series. The Tyndale New Testament Commentaries have long been a trusted resource for Bible study. Written by some of the world's most distinguished evangelical scholars, these twenty volumes offer clear, reliable, and relevant explanations of every book in the New Testament. These Tyndale volumes are designed to help readers understand what the Bible actually says and what it means. The introduction to each volume gives a concise but thorough description of the authorship, date, and historical background of the biblical book under consideration. The commentary itself examines the text section by section, drawing out its main themes. It also comments on individual verses and deals with problems of interpretation. The aim throughout is to get at the true meaning of the Bible and to make its message plain to readers today.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Excellent Verse by Verse Exegesis of Philippians  Nov 9, 2007
I occasionally preach from the book of Philippians, and I think that this is my favorite commentary on the book. Martin and Hawthorne have given us a thorough discussion of the Greek text. They show the beautiful chiastic structure of the Christ hymn in Philippians 2:5-11.

I also enjoyed the deep and revealing discussion of the key words in Philippians 1:9-11. After reading this commentary, there's almost no need to consult any of the other heavy duty commentaries, because this one covers the issues so well.

Obrien in the NIGTC series is excellent, but for preaching purposes, this is my favorite.
 
Exhaustive References / Bibliography but Difficult to Read  Jun 26, 2007
Hawthorne includes bibliography all over the place, but IMHO not the most readable commntary available. Better than Silva but not as helpful as Thurston, Lenski, Fee or O'Brien.
