In this volume on three important Pauline letters, Richard Melick provides an exegetical and theological treatment concerned with explaining the apostle's meaning for the first-century church and the church today. Careful introduction is given to the issues found in the letters as well as an illumination of Paul's theology. This is a user-friendly verse-by-verse commentary based on the NIV.
The New American Commentary is for those who have been seeking a commentary that honors the Scriptures, evangelical scholarship, and lends to the practical work of preaching and teaching. This series serves as a minister's friend and a student's guide.

Customer Reviews for Philippians, Colossians & Philemon: New American Commentary [NAC]
Review 1 for Philippians, Colossians & Philemon: New American Commentary [NAC]
Date:January 22, 2009
This is a breath of fresh air. Great scholarship is given in this commentary, along with an obvious gift of writing, and prayerful insight into the scriptures. It's great to have a commentary series like the NAC... it seems that commentaries like these are difficult to come by these days due to liberalism and biblical criticism that come along with being a "biblical scholar." Highly recommend this volume!

This set and this book is the most stimulating commentary that I have read in my pastoral ministry. For a busy pastor it is like doing exegesis with a friend. It addresses the text and not just textual issues and that is a powerful combination.
