Paul, Silas, Timothy and Luke visited Philippe and founded the first church in Europe on Paul's second missionary journey around AD 50 (Acts 16:11-40). This letter was written in about AD 61 from Rome while Paul was under house arrest. He writes from a place of strength and joy to encourage his dear friends in Philippi, who were also facing many contradictions.

This Mirror translation and commentary is so rich with depth of meaning. Each sentence accompanied by the commentary denotes an endeavour to draw out as much of the meaning as can be accomplished by the writer. The extra descriptions and teasing out of the words used in the original language helps to reveal more of the depth of God's love that would otherwise be missed. It is easy to
listen to and the reader does not get lost in commentaries with any highfalutin jargon. It reveals a broader understanding of the freedom and joy made available in the salvation plan. I would highly recommend this audio book as well as the current New Testament Mirror Bible in paperback.
