Philippians, Commentary, Bible StudySome of my favorite conversations about the Bible happen when a bunch of people are sitting around the living room, with some on the couch while others stretch out on the floor. We talk about real life. What it really means to live out whatever passage it is that we’re reading.

It’s personal, and it’s life-changing.

The Word of God was intended to be discussed and interpreted in community. So in this virtual space that we call BibleDude.net, we’ve attempted to model the same sort of atmosphere by studying and discussing books of the Bible together. The result was this beautiful conversation with different people bringing their different perspectives and ideas together in a way that I never would have been able to do on my own.

The result was so good that we decided to pull it together (and enhance it with some great word studies) for an e-book that could be more easily used for personal or group study.

Paul’s Letter to the Philippians is not a deep academic sort of commentary. It’s much more personal and real-life than that. It’s a conversation. And it’s a conversation that I believe will bless you and enrich your study of the Bible.

In it you will find contributions from this amazing group as we sit around the virtual living room and discuss a letter that Paul wrote…

If you’re looking for a great, easy to read companion for study and discussion of the Bible, then I urge you to check out this community commentary. And let me know what you think of it. I want to hear your thoughts. We have more of these in the works, and hope to make them available soon.

And as Paul said in his letter to the church in Philippi…

Every time you cross my mind, I break out in exclamations of thanks to God. Each exclamation is a trigger to prayer. I find myself praying for you with a glad heart. (Philippians 1:3-4, MSG)
