Item description for Paul's Letter to the Philippians in the Light of Disunity in the Church (Supplements to Novum Testamentum) by Davorin Peterlin...

This volume discusses the development of disunity in the Philippian church as the occasion for Paul's response in his letter. The first part of the book examines references and allusions to strife among the Philippians and tension between them and Paul. It demonstrates the pervasiveness of the theme of disunity in most sections of the letter. The second part correlates these findings with sections of the letter dealing with the Philippians' financial support for Paul. It treats such topics as Paul's attitude to money and the sociological composition of the church. The book's aim is to draw attention to social and non-theological aspects of the Philippian situation, and make a contribution to a more theological study of Philippians.

Reviews - What do customers think about Paul's Letter to the Philippians in the Light of Disunity in the Church (Supplements to Novum Testamentum)?

Excellent Scholarly Treatment of Philippians  Feb 11, 2002
This is a must read for anyone who desires to understand the Apostle Paul and his letters. D. Peterlin has done students of the New Testament a great service by demonstrating the highly personal nature of the Apostle Paul's letter to the Philippians. He carefully builds a credible case for reading this document as a single letter which treats a single problem: the dispute between two women on the leadership team at the church in Philippi threatens to ruin the local church. Dr. Peterlin masterfully constructs his case in such a way that lets the reader appreciate the "hints," in the Greek text, Paul's use of irony and the message readers were likely to infer between the lines. Peterlin goes far beyond a mere demonstration of the unity of this little letter. He constructs a solid picture of the theme of the epistle, demonstrating how each paragraph contributes to the whole in the context of the relationship between Paul and the Philippian church. His approach to Philippians relies heavily on sociological methods without being too heavy with theory. Citations of the Greek text are not translated, which is not a problem for most students of the New Testament. However, the untranslated citation of German works at key points is an occasional annoyance.

I have to be honest i only got the book at 1st because Davorin has the same last name as me. the book was hard to get into at first but after a while i found myself ingrossed in it, it is very well written and even thou i do not read very many religous books, I found it very informative. it is how ever a hard read, i did have a hard time understanding everthing but i have to admit it was interesting, if you want to understand more about the apostle paul and letters this is the book for you
