Publisher's Description

The apostle Paul wrote his most personal letter while abused and abandoned in a Roman prison. He wrote to believers who lived in the shadow of the Roman tyrant Nero. And yet this letter, Philippians, is the most joy-filled epistle in the Bible.
?
Weaving together modern stories and historical detail, Dr. David Jeremiah explores Philippians verse by verse, showing us what it means to be joyful in spite of circumstances. Whatever you are facing today, Count It All Joy will inspire you to find the joy that Jesus promises.

    As I have been reading this new release from Dr. Jeremiah, the thought that comes to my mind is that I was able to enter his office/study, find his working manuscripts or even possible transcripts of a study that he had done, and I was able to leave with out detection. This has been a most encouraging and fact filled study of Philippians that I have read. Chapter by chapter, key point by key point, with extremely relative illustrations I believe any one will be immeasurably blessed and encouraged. It is written in a way that compels you to move forward step by step, to be taught the insights of Paul's letter to the Philippians . I would strongly recommend to any one who is facing difficulties or hardships. Better then I expected to say the least.

    Jeremiah has given us an excellent study of Philippians. While this book is a reprint of a 2006 release, it is as relevant as ever.

    We are given the background to this letter from Paul. Jeremiah suggests that the theme of Philippians is joy and The secret of [Paul's] joy was his relationship with Jesus Christ. Paul's experience in prison, says, Jeremiah, was the crucible that tested his joy. If Paul's relationship to Jesus could bring joy in his situation, certainly we can learn to rejoice in difficult circumstances.

    Jeremiah highlights the personal nature of the letter and the lessons learned through adversity. He explores the purpose and function of suffering and the importance of developing Christ likeness. He emphasizes the necessity of right thinking and provides great guidelines toward having the right attitude.

    Even though I've read a number of commentaries on Philippians, I still earned something new in reading this one. I really liked Jeremiah's explanation of work out your own salvation, making reference to that expression being used in mining. I had forgotten or perhaps never realized that the Philippian church had been started by women! Other topics I really appreciated included his discussion on what it meant that Jesus emptied Himself, the dangers of legalism, and the essential elements of continuing to grow in faith. Jeremiah highlights relevant Greek words from time to time but in a way that a layman can easily understand.

    An excellent Reader's Guide has been included with suggestions for personal and group use. It includes ice breakers, discovery questions, personal application questions, prayer focus, optional activities, and homework in preparation for the next session. It would make a great twelve week study and I highly recommend it.

    I received a complimentary egalley of this book from the publisher for the purpose of an independent and honest review.

    "Count It All Joy" is a Bible study on the book of Philippians. Each chapter started with a couple of paragraphs from Philippians, which the author then worked through going verse by verse. He usually started with a sports-related modern story, and he frequently quoted insights from other authors. He did word studies, rephrased verses "in plain English" so the intent was clear, included background information, and quoted similar verses from other parts of the Bible. There were study questions (and suggested activities) at the end of the book for small groups or personal study.

    This study did provide me with some insights into the verses that I hadn't considered before. However, some parts of the study felt disconnected due to the frequent quotes and serial word studies. The verse was not re-quoted when being examined, so sometimes I'd lose track of what the verse specifically said or how the insight into word meaning clarified a point. This didn't happen very often, but it would have been nice to have the verse under examination written again where it was being examined. Perhaps this will be fixed in the final version of the book.

    Overall, I'd recommend this book to those who are interested in studying Philippians and who like this author's style.

    I received an ebook ARC review copy of this book from the publisher through NetGalley.
