Those redeemed by God in Christ rejoice and set their hearts on things above, on things which please God. The book of Philippians stimulates joy—Philippians, in fact, has been called the “sunniest” of Paul’s letters. Bryan Williams’ study of Philippians helps readers understand why Philippians was among Paul’s most-loved churches, and how the joy of the Gospel is manifested in our own lives.
