Endorsements

Matthew Harmon's commentary on Philippians is an outstanding work. We find careful exegesis and a clear explanation of the text. The commentary is theologically rich, in terms of both biblical and systematic theology, and so there is more than a running commentary. Harmon also applies the text to readers in practical ways. Scholars, students, pastors, and teachers will profit significantly from this work.

... Harmon has struck an extremely helpful balance with this commentary on Philippians. While neither becoming lost in scholarly cul-de-sacs nor avoiding tough questions, Harmon focuses on the text of Paul's letter and its application. His commentary is a sensitive and thoughtful guide to Philippians that will be appreciated by pastors, scholars, students, and (perhaps especially) by those who are some combination of the three.

One particular strength of the commentary is Harmon's clear and thoughtful analysis of Paul's use of the OT in Philippians. Philippians has too often been neglected in studies of the use of the OT in the NT, but Harmon brings the sophistication and sensitivity that mark his previous work on the OT in Galatians to this commentary, while avoiding unnecessary technicality.

A solid, well-researched commentary that should stand among the primary commentaries on Philippians for many readers.
