Endorsements & Reviews-

“Relevant. Entertaining. Accurate. Transforming. Written for everyday Christians by an expert on Philippians, Nijay Gupta’s guide strikes all the right chords.”

—Matthew W. Bates, Associate Professor of Theology, Quincy University



“Philippians comes to life as Gupta illuminates the theological issues of the text and highlights the historical context of first-century Philippi. Gupta offers accessible examples as he guides readers through the practice of theological interpretation. This skillfully written commentary should be a go-to volume for any pastor, lay leader, or student who desires a concise and thorough examination of Philippians.”

—Lynn Cohick, Provost and Dean, Professor of New Testament, Denver Seminary



“Gupta offers a remarkably accessible and rich introduction to Paul’s Letter to the Philippians. Gupta is an ideal guide for all non-specialists wanting to learn how to read a Pauline letter with attention to its theological, historical, and exegetical texture.”

—Joshua Jipp, Associate Professor of New Testament, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School



“Nijay Gupta offers an informed, learned, and eminently readable introduction to Paul’s Letter to the Philippians. A wonderful survey of the letter, from the summit of the Christ-hymn to Paul’s soliloquy about facing possible execution, suffused with great insights about Christian community, and it puts readers in touch with the latest in Pauline scholarship. A terrific volume by a world-class Pauline scholar!”

—Michael F. Bird, Academic Dean and Lecturer in Theology, Ridley College
