The Apostle Paul was bound by prison chains when he wrote to the church at Philippi.
Despite his loss of liberty, and opposition from fellow-workers, the letter radiates joy – joy that Christ was proclaimed, joy in fellowship with the Philippian Christians, and above all joy in Jesus himself.
Alec Motyer explores Paul’s great themes, so relevant today: Christian unity; the Person of Jesus and what he has achieved for us; the call to live a life worthy of the gospel.
Alec Motyer (1924–2016) was Vice-Principal of Clifton Theological College and vicar of St. Luke’s, Hampstead, and Christ Church, Westbourne, before becoming Principal of Trinity College, Bristol. He was a well-known conference and convention speaker, and the author of The Prophecy of Isaiah as well as other titles in The Bible Speaks Today series.
