Frequently Bought Together
Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought
"In this beautiful book, a vast communion of artists, theologians, historians, poets, and worshipers surrounds one letter from the Apostle Paul. Rich selections from the work of these witnesses provide varied opportunities for both newcomers and lifelong Bible readers to envision and encounter God's Word in fresh ways. When received with attention and pondered in prayer, the resources gathered here can expand imagination, deepen discernment, and encourage faithful living."
Eugene H. Peterson
"American Christians are in too much of a hurry. We miss out on most of what is right in front of us. When this 'most' is in the Bible, our faith and obedience and prayer are impoverished. This 'conversation' with Philippians slows us down to a stroll so we can take it all in — God's word not as instruction but as companion. All of us need this."
"This wonderful commentary makes Philippians come alive in new ways. The combination of rich visual experience with creative written commentary has made me a more engaged biblical 'dweller'!"
"This beautifully produced book, through its skillful interweaving of images and texts, allows the Apostle Paul to speak in fresh and unexpected ways. A striking and original initiative."
"Not much in our frazzled life encourages us to slow down and savor God's presence in Scripture. The images, prayers, and reflections in this beautiful book work this miracle. Dwelling with Philippians is slow food for the spirit! Keep it beside you, pray with it, give it to your friends, your family — and especially to your pastor!"
Library Journal (STARRED review)
"The illustrations are glorious, a truly evocative comment on the ancient text, and should appeal to many artists both within and without congregations."
"This is a remarkably beautiful book. Weaving together traditional and contemporary art, lyrics of hymns, poetry, and selections of commentary, it offers the reader a contemplative experience of Paul's letter to the Philippians. . . . This would make a great gift for a friend — or for yourself."
Religious Studies Review
"Deserves a broad readership as a biblical and liturgical resource for teachers and pastors, a textbook for course such as Pauline literature, Philippians, hermeneutics, and worship arts, as well as personal or collective Bible study."
"A beautiful book both in the abundance of artwork included (almost 150 prints and paintings) and also in the diversity of the cultures and centuries represented in the text."
Spirituality & Practice
"This book on Paul's letter to the Philippians sets next to the interpretations stunning visual images from paintings along with poetry, prayers, and worship-related materials."

Would I quibble with the choices of art or poetry on the basis of my (admittedly narrowly-focused) exegesis of Philippians? Would I take issue with some points in the devotional material? Of course I would. That's what I'm trained to do. But I stand in awe nevertheless of the thoughtfulness, no, the spiritual perspicuity that went into the formation of this volume -- and, through it, the formation of Christian souls and lives.
And so unbelievably inexpensive for such quality prints on such quality paper! (The pragmatist in me just had to throw that it.) Get this book. Dwell in it for the sixteen days or sixteen weeks it will take you to attend to Philippians meaningfully through it. You will be enriched.
