I am very familiar with this Philippians commentary from The Bible Speaks Today Series (IVP). I loved the commentary and found his writing and perspective and understanding deep and penetrating but accessible.

Motyer's area of focus is the links between OT and NT. He gives the reader a deep and insighful and personally meaningful discussion of the text, pointing out the meaning of the words in the original languages when it is helpful to our growth. I would love to read other things by Alec Motyer. Totally recommend for pastors and teachers as well as small groups interested in a good deep read of the book.

I love this series on the Word of God. The authors break down each verse. They interpret the words and give excellent background information. Even though I have a Kindle, I usually buy these books in paperback. I love to make notes and reread sections over and over.

I cant say enough about the whole series of these books, just gives you great insight to the writers and apostles what they where going thru and what was happening around them at the time. Tells not only what the meaning of the scriptures are according to their understanding but also what was happening with the churches and populace at the time of the scriptures. They also give great suggestions of different authors and books to add to your studies

The book arrived quickly in the stated condition. It is a very good introductory -- but not simplistic -- study of this letter from the Apostle Paul. Everything Motyer commentary writes is reliably biblical and worth the time and money invested. His theological perspective is Reformed.

This book provided many teachable moments for me as a teacher and my fellow students of the Bible. I recommend it highly for high school kids and home Bible studies alike.
