  • undertaken to provide earnest students of the New Testament with an exposition that is thorough and abreast of modern scholarship and at the same time loyal to the Scriptures as the infallible Word of God This statement reflects the underlying purpose of The New International Commentary on the New Testament Begun in the late 1940s by an international team of New undertaken to provide earnest students of the New Testament with an exposition that is thorough and abreast of modern scholarship and at the same time loyal to the Scriptures as the infallible Word of God This statement reflects the underlying purpose of The New International Commentary on the New Testament Begun in the late 1940s by an international team of New Testament scholars, the NICNT series has become recognized by pastors, students, and scholars alike as a critical yet orthodox commentary marked by solid biblical scholarship within the evangelical Protestant tradition.While based on a thorough study of the Greek text, the commentary introductions and expositions contain a minimum of Greek references The NICNT authors evaluate significant textual problems and take into account the most important exegetical literature More technical aspects such as grammatical, textual, and historical problems are dealt with in footnotes, special notes, and appendixes.Under the general editorship of three outstanding New Testament scholars first Ned Stonehouse Westminster Theological Seminary, Philadelphia , then F F Bruce University of Manchester, England , and now Gordon D Fee Regent College, Vancouver, British Columbia the NICNT series has continued to develop over the years In order to keep the commentary new and conversant with contemporary scholarship, the NICNT volumes have been and will be revised or replaced as necessary.The newer NICNT volumes in particular take into account the role of recent rhetorical and sociological inquiry in elucidating the meaning of the text, and they also exhibit concern for the theology and application of the text As the NICNT series is ever brought up to date, it will continue to find ongoing usefulness as an established guide to the New Testament text.

    1 thought on “Paul's Letter to the Philippians

    1. I am leading a Bible study for church leaders on Philippians at a local coffee shop (June-July, 2013)and find Fee's concern for the rhetorical and logical flow of the letter (providing a detailed & defensible outline of the entire letter) plus the definition of Greek words in context to be very helpful. I am still uncertain about the place of writing (i.e Rome, Ephesus, or Caesarea) and thus tentative about dating the epistle (i.e AD 55, 49,or 50). Although I have some doubts about the unity [...]

    2. No "finish" date, as I have not finished reading every page nor have I finished with the book: this is definitely a commentary I expect to return to many times. Chunky enough to really explore some knotty textual and exegetical questions, but not soooo stacked with Greek and excessively obscure or speculative arguments that the interested but not-entirely-specialist reader can't enjoy it.Every page is sensible or illuminating in some way, and from time to time Fee's personal warmth even seeps th [...]

    3. Fee is thorough in his handling of the text of Philippians and broad in terms of engagement with other scholars and current debates around the book. I found his contextual work on the political and social milieu of Philippi particularly helpful and this was a major factor in terms of how I in turn understood and preached the book. Very highly recommended.

    4. Paul's Letter to the Philippians by Gordon Fee is in the New International Commentary on the New Testament (NICNT) series published by Eerdmans. In this important commentary on this gem of a letter, Fee delves deeply into Paul's thought and Paul's world. I deeply enjoyed reading Fee's exposition, and was continually challenged by Paul's deep faith and his unflagging focus on Jesus Christ.Fee surveys the important issues in the interpretation of Philippians, in constant dialogue (mostly in the no [...]

    5. I had this idea to read through commentaries on every book of the bible in 5 years timeI made it through this one and realized that I don't care enough to accomplish my goal. I'll probably still at least read some on Isaiah and Genesis (assuming it get into the ancient near east comparisons). As for this book its conservative and pretty good, Fee is a Pentecostal but for the most part I don't think that he has very evident biases (although I'm sure its more there in a book like 1 Cor.). Really t [...]

    6. My favorite commentary on Philippians. It is thick and scholarly, but warm & passionate. Fee's (and Paul's) love for and commitment to Jesus Christ come out on almost every page.The last paragraph:"To live is Christ; to die is to gain Christ; and for the sake of such 'gain,' namely the surpassing value of knowing Christ Jesus as one's own Lord, all else is merely refuse. Thus, may the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with all the readers of this letter, and with those who use this commentar [...]

    7. Very thorough and comprehensive. If someone were to buy only one Philippians commentary I'd highly recommend this one. The layout is extremely helpful, with mroe technical footnotes on the bottom of the page, and a more fluid commentary in the body of the page. This was very readable.A few disclaimers: Fee comes from more of a solid Pentecostal (wih differences) perspective. He also is an egalitarian and that shows up in some of his presuppositions, but is never really defended.

    8. This is probably the first commentary I ever "mostly" read cover to cover. Is it possible to describe a commentary as an "I can't put it down" kind of a book?
