Philippians is a coherent whole, written while under house arrest to a motley crew of new believers in need of Paul's unique brew of tenacity and joy. It hums with hard-won optimism and weather-tested faith.

Yet from its moments of crescendoing Christology to its insights into human psychology, it is the gift that never stops giving and the treasure that never ceases to gleam.
