Item Description...
Lightfoot's thorough study of the key concepts and passages in this hopeful text has, like all the other Crossway Classic Commentaries, been tailored for the understanding of today's readers.

Publishers Description

For hundreds of years Christendom has been blessed with Bible commentaries written by great men of God highly respected for their godly walk and their insight into spiritual truth. The Crossway Classic Commentaries present the very best work on individual Bible books, carefully adapted for maximum understanding and usefulness for today's believers.

Many Christians consider the apostle Paul's letter to the Philippians a special treasure. Its grand themes of spiritual joy and vitality, the self-humbling Savior who gave his life for us, the good news of a salvation that is superior to the boastings of the flesh--these and other gems still nurture followers of Jesus Christ today.

This classic commentary will deeply encourage all who long to draw closer to God.

More About Lightfoot J B

J. B. LIGHTFOOT (1828-1889) was an outstanding British New Testament scholar. He worked with F. J. A. Hort and B. F. Westcott at Cambridge University to produce a New Testament commentary based on a reliable Greek text. His work in demonstrating the first-century origin of the New Testament books helped demolish the TUbingen school of biblical criticism. Along with his Philippians, his commentaries on Galatians and Colossians/Philemon are still considered landmarks of biblical study and exposition.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Short but full of good theology  Dec 5, 2005
I bought this book because I own another one (Romans) from this series, and Lightfoot's commentary is considered a classic. I was not disappointed at all with this purchase. It is short which actually makes sense because the book of Philippians is only four chapters long. Despite its brevity, it contains lots of great information about the book of Philippians.

First - it includes an excellent introduction to the book, giving its context, and explaining the context of Paul's situation. Second - Lightfoot's translation of the original text is rich and wonderful. When I read his translation and notes I really learned a lot more about what Paul had to say to the church of Philippi - one of his favorite congregations. It truly reveals the heart of Paul towards these people, and the joy he received from God despite being in prison while writing it.

If you are interested in learning more about the book of Philippians, I highly recommend this commentary. It is easy enough for the average reader (like myself) to understand, and short enough to read quickly. Lastly, I used some of this commentary when preparing classes for the youth of our church, and found it very helpful in revealing the heart of Paul to a young generation.
This commentary stands the test of time...  May 18, 2001
As a Precepts Upon Precepts leader, I usually purchase no less than three commentaries on each book I lead. Invarably, one of these commentaries always stands out above the rest. That is certainly the case with this excellent exposition on Philippians written by the great nineteenth century New Testament scholar, J.B. Lightfoot. It is written in an easy to understand verse by verse layout with an excellent emphasis given to the original Greek usage of the words. The detailed explaination of the use of the word "form" will certainly enlighten any believer to the true meaning of the Incarnation of Jesus Christ. If you are studying Philippians and can afford only one commentary, this is the one to purchase.
