In this fine new commentary on Paul's letter to the Philippians, Stephen Fowl notes that for the great pre-modern commentators of the Christian tradition, the literal sense of Scripture is always regulated by theological concerns. Thus, unlike commentaries that simply append theology to historical criticism, Fowl's volume displays disciplined attention to the text of Philippians in ways that enhance, rather than frustrate, theological inquiry.
