Silva's commentary on Philippians is an updated version of an earlier out of print work and is quite good if you are looking for a commentary that is not too technical and gets to the point of the passage. At 248 pages it is not nearly as comprehensive or in depth as Fee's commentary (497pp.) or O'Brien's (597pp.) which are the 2 best on this letter. However, Silva is equally adept at dealing with the important interpretive issues in much more succinct fashion. Worth the effort.

This is a very fine mid range commentary. Silva's exegetical skills are impressive, and his decisions are nuanced via contextual awareness and linguistic sophistication. While not as long as Obrien or Fee, it is also not as taxing on the reader. Silva has the good sense to give us enough information without becoming pondersome or tangential. Frankly, I wish the writers and publishers of the ever more girthsome commentaries would take note of his approach. Highly Recommended!

Moisés Silva's commentary on Philippians is roughly half the size of Fee's commentary, but Silva's commentary is much more reader-friendly. Silva also argues for Pauline authorship and Roman provenance. Silva provides his own translation, and although perhaps a handful of his conclusions are far-fetched, his scholarship leads him to many valuable insights of which Fee does not write. Silva's own excellent translation and highly readable commentary make his work a must-have for those who preach through Philippians. I consider it along with Fee's volume for the NICNT series to be the two best commentaries on Philippians that I've read.

I am working my way through teaching the book of Philippians, and just got this resource. So far it is excellent. There is enough interaction w/ scholars to work through the main issues and questions of the text, plus a reasoned defense of the author's position. Spends time/space in the places I have needed it. Great for an exegetical work.

I never really thought much of Phillipians - I thought it was another letter to another city written by Paul. After reading through this commentary, my opnion has totally changed. Mr. Silvia has carefully crafted a weel documented and easy to follow journey through Phillipinas. He spends time doing word studies (he uses conventional Greek words/letters and then uses the English version of the Greek so you can actually say the word out loud!)

Some might argue this is not the most scholarly written commentary, but for me, it was all I needed. I did in the end buy two more commentaries (Fowler and Fee), but not because of gaps in this one, rather because I was interested in other opinions and perspective. But I do find myself coming back to this one continously.
