Publisher's Description

This rich, inviting volume illumines Paul’s letter to the Philippians through evocative juxtapositions of visual images, poetry, and other worship-related arts with theological reflections, prayers, and more. The book’s multidimensional approach creates abundant space for unhurried contemplation, whether in individual reflection or group study. It invites readers to dwell with Philippians — to slow down, to explore the texture and palette of Paul’s message in a deliberately measured way, to be drawn into the mystery, beauty, and life-changing power of this joyful biblical letter.

Editorial Reviews

Dorothy C. Bass
"In this beautiful book, a vast communion of artists, theologians, historians, poets, and worshipers surrounds one letter from the Apostle Paul. Rich selections from the work of these witnesses provide varied opportunities for both newcomers and lifelong Bible readers to envision and encounter God’s Word in fresh ways. When received with attention and pondered in prayer, the resources gathered here can expand imagination, deepen discernment, and encourage faithful living."

Eugene H. Peterson "American Christians are in too much of a hurry. We miss out on most of what is right in front of us. When this ’most’ is in the Bible, our faith and obedience and prayer are impoverished. This ’conversation’ with Philippians slows us down to a stroll so we can take it all in — God’s word not as instruction but as companion. All of us need this." 

Richard Mouw
"This wonderful commentary makes Philippians come alive in new ways. The combination of rich visual experience with creative written commentary has made me a more engaged biblical ’dweller’!" 

Jeremy Begbie
 "This beautifully produced book, through its skillful interweaving of images and texts, allows the Apostle Paul to speak in fresh and unexpected ways. A striking and original initiative."

William Dyrness
"Not much in our frazzled life encourages us to slow down and savor God’s presence in Scripture. The images, prayers, and reflections in this beautiful book work this miracle. Dwelling with Philippians is slow food for the spirit! Keep it beside you, pray with it, give it to your friends, your family — and especially to your pastor!"

    I made this book available to my congregation following a series of messages on Philippians. Fully one third of the congregation took up my offer. Those who did not at the time want me to place another order.

    Considerable thought and prayer has gone into the writing of this book. It could be used for simple devotional reading, contemplative seeing and just calming down. I hope the writers do other scriptural books. Good value for the cost.
