Reviews - What do customers think about Philippians?
Excellent Verse by Verse Exegesis of Philippians Nov 9, 2007
I occasionally preach from the book of Philippians, and I think that this is my favorite commentary on the book. Martin and Hawthorne have given us a thorough discussion of the Greek text. They show the beautiful chiastic structure of the Christ hymn in Philippians 2:5-11.
I also enjoyed the deep and revealing discussion of the key words in Philippians 1:9-11. After reading this commentary, there's almost no need to consult any of the other heavy duty commentaries, because this one covers the issues so well.
Obrien in the NIGTC series is excellent, but for preaching purposes, this is my favorite.
Exhaustive References / Bibliography but Difficult to Read Jun 26, 2007
Hawthorne includes bibliography all over the place, but IMHO not the most readable commntary available. Better than Silva but not as helpful as Thurston, Lenski, Fee or O'Brien.
