Format: Hardcover
The book of Philippians has been well served by evangelical and/or conservative commentaries over the past several decades. A dozen solid works at least have appeared between, say, Martin's 1959 TNTC commentary and Hansen's new work. Some of the better ones include O'Brien (NIGNT, 1991); Fee (NICNT, 1995); Thielman (NIVAC, 1995); Bockmuehl (BNTC, 1997); Silva (BECNT, 2005); and Fowl (THNTC, 2005).

Thus a lot of good commentary has already been produced on this important epistle of Paul's. Here in some 350 pages the Fuller Seminary professor offers a very helpful and workmanlike treatment. He has already penned a shorter commentary on Galatians (IVPNTC, 1994).

He offers 35 pages of introductory material. Pauline authorship is of course assumed here (it has not really been questioned with this book). Debate does arise as to the integrity of the book, however. After carefully assessing the arguments for the thesis that Philippians is actually a combination of several letters written at differing times, Hansen defers to the traditional argument that this book is one complete letter.

The occasion of the letter is fairly straightforward in terms of issues being addressed. Three major problems have to be tackled: disunity in the ranks; suffering in the community; and opponents of the church.

Consider the issue of opponents. As is often the case in Paul's letters, exact identification of the opponents is hard to fully determine. Indeed, some 18 different options have been proposed thus far. Hansen suggests that at least four main groupings can be identified: "ambitious preachers, intimidating powers, Jewish Christian teachers, and enemies of the cross".
