    Summary A biblical commentary on Paul s letter to the Philippians combining exegetical and preaching resources for each passage.This commentary represents one of the first of a new commentary series published through Kregel Ministry The approach in the Kerux Commentaries is to pair a biblical scholar and a preaching author, either a pastor or homiletician The commentary is organized by preaching passages under an overall outline of the book Following an overview of all the preaching passages Summary A biblical commentary on Paul s letter to the Philippians combining exegetical and preaching resources for each passage.This commentary represents one of the first of a new commentary series published through Kregel Ministry The approach in the Kerux Commentaries is to pair a biblical scholar and a preaching author, either a pastor or homiletician The commentary is organized by preaching passages under an overall outline of the book Following an overview of all the preaching passages and introduction covering typical introductory issues are exegetical and preaching resources for each passage.Each section includes a brief section on the literary structure and themes of the passage, a short exposition, and then verse by verse exegesis of the passage including renderings of key Greek terms, sidebars on cultural backgrounds e.g slaves and servants, saints from Philippians 1 1 8 , and the theological focus of the passage This is followed by Preaching and Teaching Strategies an exegetical and theological synthesis, the main preaching idea, contemporary connections, a section on creativity in presentation, a summary of preaching points, and then a list of discussion questions and additional resources.The commentary highlights well some of the key themes in Philippians the themes of joy, partnership in the gospel, the call to stand together, looking to others interests, highlighting the example of Christ, and the surpassing worth of knowing Christ and dependency upon him In very readable form the exegetical part of the commentary sets out key textual issues, terms, and background and sums this up well in identifying the theological focus of the passage.I found the preaching section less helpful The preaching strategies did flow from exegesis and model this practice making a number of good points and suggested some creative ideas for presentation e.g on Philippians 1 27 30 on loyalty to Christ, suggesting use of a kingdom pledge of allegiance Perhaps it is my own preference to determine the preaching idea and homiletic outline from my own study and not preach someone else s material, but I found these sections less helpful than the exegetical sections Still, the preaching author often raised good ideas that preached to me, for example, from Philippians 2 5 8, he poses good questions about what it means to climb down the ladder of privilege.The discussion questions are helpful for those using this commentary with adult education groups or those teaching the passage in a Bible study The authors also offer an extensive reference section with eighteen pages of contemporary books, commentaries and articles on Philippians.This commentary strikes a good balance between the highly technical commentaries and the popular commentaries that are often transcribed sermons This is helpful for pastors and lay teachers who may not have extended time for study but want to give exegetically sound messages Just don t plagiarize the preaching material I might be in the audience ________________________________Disclosure of Material Connection I received a complimentary review copy of this book from the publisher The opinions I have expressed are my own

    Philippians A Commentary for Biblical Preaching and Teaching, part of the Kerux Commentaries series by Kregel, by Thomas Moore and Timothy D Sprankle has farin it that the size of the book would lead you to assume.Herman W Bateman IV, the series editor, explains that the series attempts to give a detailed introduction and outline of the book , a summary of all preaching sections with their primary exegetical, theological, and preaching ideas, preaching pointers that join the original Philippians A Commentary for Biblical Preaching and Teaching, part of the Kerux Commentaries series by Kregel, by Thomas Moore and Timothy D Sprankle has farin it that the size of the book would lead you to assume.Herman W Bateman IV, the series editor, explains that the series attempts to give a detailed introduction and outline of the book , a summary of all preaching sections with their primary exegetical, theological, and preaching ideas, preaching pointers that join the original historical context with the contemporary one, insights from the Hebrew and Greek text, a thorough exposition of the text, sidebars of pertinent information and historical background, appropriate charts and photographs, a theological focus to passages, a contemporary big idea for every preaching unit, present day meaning, validity, and application of a main idea, creative presentations for each primary idea, key questions about the text for study groups, lists of books and articles for further reading 7 8.Now, if that doesn t sound overwhelming, you can t be overwhelmed The commentary begins with an overview of all preaching passages including the exegetical idea, theological focus, preaching idea, and preaching pointers After dividing the text in this way, there is a chart of abbreviations.Then an introduction to the book much along the lines you would find in a study Bible, but in significantlydetail.Then the commentary begins 44 in this case All the facets intended are covered here, ending each preaching section with discussion questions.Final, there is the list of reading materials.The good about this commentary and the series is that it takes the text seriously, it gives the read extensive information particularly in interpreting the text in its context, and in this, it is a very valuable series for seminary students, preachers, and discussion groups.My one qualm is the other side of the coin this series gives an extraordinary amount of information great for the price but it even divides the text into preaching sections and tells the reader what the points themes of the text are I am concerned that some will use this commentary to automatically write the sermon without relying on the guidance of the Holy Spirit One could easily take this commentary and give eighteen sermons covering the book without thinking about the text or waiting on the leading of God for the congregation the preacher is shepherding.This is a valuable series, packing an incredible amount of information in a short space However, it might be wise for the man of God to read the text and pray prior to opening the commentary, so he will not be lulled into simply giving a summary of the commentary to his people.I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an unbiased review This review appears on my blog, .com, Kregel.com, and Goodreads.com
