Studying Phillipians using commentaries by Marshall, Thielman, and Lightfoot. When finished with their comments on any passage, I then turn to Motyer. His comments often thrill my soul! Wonderful commentary.

There is always room for one commentary that is a little less technical and suitable for a wide readership. Such is the case with Motyer’s volume in The Bible Speaks Today series. The work is necessarily brief, but apparently still powerful. [Full Review]
I have benefited from everything I have read by Alec Motyer. He never comments on Scripture in a detached manner. His love for the word of God and for God who gave His word always shines through. This is one of the more useful introductory level commentaries on Paul's epistle to the Philippians. [Full Review]

I loved this commentary. For a simple devotional style commentary this is excellent. Highly recommended for pastors and those just looking to get a basic understanding of the book and grow in their Christian faith. For students of Philippians, you will probably certainly want to start with a commentary like Fee or Thielman as there are many important insights and observations that Motyer does not discuss. This one, however, deserves 5 stars for the series it is in.
