7 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Dr. Marc Axelrod VINE VOICE on November 9, 2007
Format: Hardcover
I occasionally preach from the book of Philippians, and I think that this is my favorite commentary on the book. Martin and Hawthorne have given us a thorough discussion of the Greek text. They show the beautiful chiastic structure of the Christ hymn in Philippians 2:5-11.

I also enjoyed the deep and revealing discussion of the key words in Philippians 1:9-11. After reading this commentary, there's almost no need to consult any of the other heavy duty commentaries, because this one covers the issues so well.

Obrien in the NIGTC series is excellent, but for preaching purposes, this is my favorite.

Format: Hardcover
The volume in the Word Biblical Commentary on Philippians was originally written by the late Gerald Hawthorne (professor of Greek at Wheaton College for many years) and was updated and revised by Ralph Martin. All in all, this is a stellar work. Although containing enough technical material for the most scholarly of students, it is also clearly written and straightforward enough that someone without a knowledge of Greek and who is looking to get an overview of the book (or for that matter a particular passage) will be able to use the commentary profitably.

Hawthorne/Martin use their own translation of the text. On the whole it appears to be an accurate rendition of the Greek and is sensitive to those passages where there are alternative translations. (I have not compared the translation in the Hawthorne/Martin edition with the original in any detail, so I can't say just how much revision has taken place in the translation found in the newer edition. However, I sense that they are similar.)

Of the several commentaries on Philippians I own, this is definitely one of the best. I would highly recommend it for anyone looking to do a serious study on this epistle.

I own several commentaries on Philippians and this is one of my favorite. I especially enjoy Martin's revised notes, it is interesting to read Hawthorne's original work when he disagrees with Martin. I have Martin's commentary on Philippians both are good but Hawthorne is extremely helpful on technicalities with in the Greek so I prefer it over most other Philippian commentaries.
