RCS NT 11: Philippians, Colossians

Paul's letters to the Philippians and Colossians celebrate the glory and
supremacy of Jesus Christ and his saving work, a refrain that the reformers
never grew tired of singing. While their tones are diverse, the clarity of
their compositions and the power of their voices still reverberate today.
Reformation commentators found the main themes of these Pauline letters deeply
applicable to their circumstances, and volume editor Graham Tomlin urges that
they are just as relevant to our own: Philippians overflows with thanksgiving
in the midst of persecution and trials; Colossians defends the superiority of
Jesus as Lord over all principalities and powers.
For the Reformers as well as for Paul, all goodness and grace flows from Christ
in whom all the fullness of God was pleased to dwell" (Col 1:19), the Son who " made himself nothing" (Phil 2:7) in order to bring many daughters and sons to " glory. This volume assembles a diverse chorus spanning place, time, and
confessional differences: from Italian Reform-minded Catholic Gasparo Contarini
and German Lutheran Martin Chemnitz, to Dutch Anabaptist Menno Simons, to
French Reformed Theodore Beza and English Puritan Richard Sibbes. Scholars and
pastors alike will find many fruitful insights from these and a number of other
significant figures - most of whom enjoy fresh translations from the original,
many for the first time in English.
