Overview

The church at Philippi is considered to be one of the model churches of the New Testament.

But if this were a report at a shareholders' meeting we might be asking ourselves whether the Chairman has really got this right? Is something being hidden? It seems too good to be true! If this were an athlete we might be asking ourselves whether there has been some performance-enhancing substance in the diet! And if this were an end-of-term report we might be asking ourselves if the teacher had got the right child!

Can a church really be that good?

But there's no doubting that Paul has the right church. Perched on the edge of southern Greece, Philippi was the first city to hear the Christian message in Europe - we have much to learn from the church that grew there.

This fresh and lively study book is ideally suited to the more interactive way we learn in today's church.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
... a lively, brilliant and courageous exposition of Paul's Letter to the Philippians. I am delighted to recommend this gem of a book about a gem of a New Testament church. It's the work of a first class preacher of God's Word and deserves to be very widely read. ~ Mark Stibbe

What People are saying about this

From the Publisher
"This book on Philippians exudes the warmth of the letter itself. It engages with our lives and is insightfully applied. William is one of the finest leaders I know. His background as a captain in the Royal Greenjackets prepared him well for the leadership in the church. He is a man who recognises the eternal significance of pastoral leadership; it is his compassionate pastoral care, so evident at St Helen's, which reflects itself in his preaching and in this book." ~ David Cook (Retired Principal, Sydney Missionary and Bible College, Sydney, Australia)
