This is a reissue of the 1988 Wycliffe Exegetical Commentary, and has been completely revised. Silva has written an excellent commentary on this epistle and can be ranked alongside Fee and Lightfoot. The exegesis is what one would expect from a good academic commentary, and the flow of the language is simple and easy to follow. Silva has discussed the text of 2:5 and 6 in details, and it is here where he exceeds Fee in his exegesis; but it cannot be compared to the detailed study done by Lightfoot on the word morphe in his commentary. I highly recommend this commentary to all alike for it will be useful to the scholar, student and pastor.
