Full Product Description

The truth revealed behind the phrase "for me to live is Christ" transforms our responses to present imperfections and future hope.

A text-by-text exposition and application of Paul's epistle to the Philippians that is Christ-centered, sensitive to redemptive-historical motifs, consistent with Reformed theology, and grace-grounded in its application to contemporary hearers.

Johnson's commentary - grounded in pastoral application - is ideal for sermon preparation and devotional reading.

Philippians by Dennis E. Johnson was published by P & R Publishing in July 2013 and is our 46301st best seller. The ISBN for Philippians is 9781596382008.

"Pastors aspiring to preach expositorily (as all pastors should preach), take note! Philippians by Dennis E. Johnson is as good a source for such preaching as you’ll ever get. The commentary has everything you’d want: not only uncluttered exegesis, cross-references to the rest of Scripture, and theological integration, but also historical background and parallels, literary references, illustrations from and applications to modern life, allusions to pop culture, local color, and warmth of personal testimony. The chapter titles alone will whet your appetite. Use this commentary both for Philippians and also as a template for pastoral exposition of other biblical books." - Robert Gundry, Westmont College

"I am always glad to see commentaries that will help preachers. This one is sure to do that. It is beautifully and clearly written . . . rich with individual insights . . . Its courageous tackling of contemporary aberrations such as prosperity teaching will stiffen pastoral backbones to do the same." - Greg R. Scharf, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School

"This is a treasured contribution to P&R’s Reformed Expository Commentary series. Johnson’s experience as a preacher and teacher of preachers not only makes these messages wonderful models of exposition, but also his expertise in Biblical Theology permeates every page. The Christ-centered focus is beautifully and powerfully interwoven throughout." - Bryan Chapell, Covenant Seminary

"As a student of Dr. Johnson’s, I came to admire his insight into Scripture and his pastoral heart. Exemplifying the model of proclaiming Christ from all of the scriptures, this outstanding commentary on Philippians unpacks the treasures of the apostle s teaching with profound skill that captivates the heart." - Michael Horton, Westminster Seminary California

"It is filled with valuable insights into the biblical text and its practical consequences. This book is a true gem just like the man who wrote it." - S. M. Baugh, Westminster Seminary California
