In zijn artikel: An Overview of Recent Scholarly Literature on Philippians
The same (EW: “interested in and aware of the theological and pastoral tenor of the letter”) may be said of M. N. A. Bockmuehl’s commentary in the Black’s New Testament Commentary Series. Published in 1998, Bockmuehl’s comparatively brief treatment of Philippians (a ‘mere’ 326 pages!) is exegetically astute, theologically engaged, and pastorally aware. Bockmuehl also displays in the pages of his commentary an interest in and knowledge of the letter’s interpretation and impact beyond that of the contemporary academy. Taken together, in my estimation, if a teacher, pastor, or student were limited to a single commentary on Philippians, then one would be hard pressed to improve upon Bockmuehl’s learned work that is written in limpid style.
