Philippians - Pursuing Christ to Know Him

by Thomas W. Finley


From the day Paul came to faith in Jesus Christ on the road to Damascus, he lived life in a single-minded pursuit of knowing Jesus Christ more fully and serving Him more faithfully. Paul desired to live a life that God could reward. That is what he wanted for the believers in Philippi. It is one of the main reasons that he wrote them this letter that we call the book of Philippians. The truth principles, the warnings, and the encouragement of Paul’s letter to the Philippians are just as powerful and applicable today as they were to the original readers.

Tom Finley has written a very practical commentary on Philippians that will help believers today understand and apply the powerful truth of this book in their daily lives and ministries. From the knowledge gained from Tom’s careful examination of the text, to the understanding of the practical application of that knowledge given in the “Life Application” sections, the readers of this commentary will be challenged and encouraged - through all the circumstances of life - to experience the joy, contentment, and God’s reward through living a life of a single-minded pursuit of Jesus Christ.

Tom not only brings out the truths of the book of Philippians in this commentary, he also gives the readers useful instruction about the principles of interpretation. In addition, information is supplied about available resources that will make it possible to have a more effective study of any other book of the Bible. With his trademark thoroughness, faithfulness and compassion, Tom Finley has given us a valuable tool in our study of this wonderful letter to the Philippians.
