Emphasizing the historical distance between the New Testament and contemporary culture, Philippians—part of the new, highly-anticipated Fidei Commentary series on the New Testament—provides pastors, students, Sunday School teachers, and lay people a clear and compelling exposition of the text in the context of the Bible’s overarching story. The authors move away from “application” language, which has been criticized as being too simplistic, instead encouraging discussion of how the Bible’s story can be lived today. Offering a new type of application commentary for today’s context, the Fidei series explains and illuminates Scripture as God’s Story, with each New Testament text examined as embedded in its canonical and historical setting, in order to foster discernment in living the story faithfully and creatively with and for the Church in the 21st Century

Simple Bible Commentary is devoted to lifting up Jesus. Rick Soto's writing style is clear, easy to read, and full of thoughtful conviction. The verse-by-verse, transformational study looks at the depth Philippians has to offer. The Bible was not written for academics but for God's people, given as a gift, helping them to love, worship and enjoy him. Simple things have depth and roots; they are true, often in the most obvious way. To simply enjoy the Word simply is not to err in theology, history or any other academic discipline, but to value most what God values. The Book of Philippians is a classic example of that idea. The short book is rich in history, theology and spiritual growth, opening wide large doors into the richness of Jesus

Women In The World Of The Earliest Christians

Lynn Cohick provides an accurate and fulsome picture of the earliest Christian women by examining a wide variety of first-century Jewish and Greco-Roman documents that illuminate their lives. She organizes the book around three major spheres of life: family, religious community, and society in general. Cohick shows that although women during this period were active at all levels within their religious communities, their influence was not always identified by leadership titles nor did their gender always determine their level of participation. The book corrects our understanding of early Christian women by offering an authentic and descriptive historical picture of their lives. Includes black-and-white illustrations from the ancient world.
