Item description for Philippians And Philemon (Sacra Pagina Series) by Bonnie B. Thurston & Judith Ryan...

Overview
"Translations with commentary of Paul's Letter to the Philippians and his Letter to Philemon. The letters are approached methodologically, with attention to historical and cultural contexts"--Provided by publisher.

Publishers Description
Although relatively brief, Philippians is one of the most interesting and beloved of Paul's undisputed epistles. In "Philippians and Philemon," Bonnie Thurston makes a convincing case that canonical Philippians is as Paul wrote it, one letter. Although there is not enough specific evidence to &name names,&;" she suggests a number of possible audiences. A translation conforming as closely as possible to the original Greek is provided, along with a careful analysis of the language of the letter that yields insights into the context and theological underpinning of this epistle.

The apostle;'s very brief letter to Philemon stands solidly within the Pauline collection of authentic and canonical letters. In this volume, Judith Ryan argues that Philemon makes two specific appeals. The first seeks to elicit Philemon;'s partnership and his community;'s support in welcoming Onesimus back as both beloved brother and honored guest. The second requests that Onesimus be allowed to use the freedom he already has to serve Christ and his Gospel. In this commentary Ryan provides a fresh translation, critical notes for each verse, and interpretation on defined sections. She situates the letter in the historical context of slavery in the ancient world and shows how Paul combined his theology with contemporary rhetorical strategies to produce an effective challenge to his audience.

"Bonnie B. Thurston, PhD, lives in West Virginia in solitude. She is ordained in the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) and the author of several books, including "The Spiritual Landscape of Mark" and "Religious Vows, the Sermon on the Mount, and Christian Living" (Liturgical Press) and "Preaching Mark "(Fortress Press)."

Reviews - What do customers think about Philippians And Philemon (Sacra Pagina Series)?

Good Solid Catholic Scholarship on Philippians  Jun 26, 2007
The introduction to the commentary was helpful and easily read. The outline included was helpful and original. Also appreciated was the authors' clear presentation of her/their approach to the book re: question of unity and integrity. With Lenski and O'Brian and Fee and John Phillips, this is a Philippians commentary that should be included on any scholar / pastor's short list.
 
Great Series Commentary  Nov 10, 2006
Fine scholarship with no bias obvious. I have not found one volume in the Sacra Pagina series with which I am not satisfied. When used with Word Commentary, and The New Internaional Greek Testament Commentary, I find I get a well balance study of scripture. For those not ready for ICC or Hermeneutica these should be challenging to learn the thought of the original languages. These volumes offer tibits toward an understanding of how the scriptures have been interpretred in the patristic period and into the reformation as well.
