This devotional commentary of Philippians contains helpful study and review questions for personal Bible study or sermon preparation.
The apostle Paul wrote to the church at Philippi in order to help "make their joy complete." In this practical exposition of the letter to the Philippians, J. Dwight Pentecost helps the reader discover a joy that transcends any circumstance and a contentment that is greater than any trial.
Pentecost observes that "knowing Christ, walking in fellowship with Him, and being obedient to Him floods the life and heart and mind of the apostle Paul with an incomparable joy...so that in Christ he has found perfect rest, satisfaction, and contentment."
J. Dwight Pentecost is Distinguished Professor of Bible Exposition, Emeritus, at Dallas Theological Seminary where he has served since 1955. He holds a B. A. from Hampden-Sydney College and Th. M. and Th. D. degrees from Dallas Theological Seminary.
