Philippians: An Introduction and SurveyBy: Ralph P. Martin
"Paul's letter to the Philippians may aptly be seen as a meditation on joy. But Paul's joy, rather than the result of ease and comfort, is a contentedness made pure through suffering. He has 'learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want'. Ralph Martin shows how these themes flow from and emulate Christ's humility, lead to spiritual fellowship among believers, and contribute to spreading the gospel."--Back cover.
