What emerges is a careful guide to one of the most important canonical epistles, and one of the most important cities in early Christianity. Verhoef draws students' and scholars attention to key artifacts, illuminating aspects of the Early Church at Philippi and the work of Paul. This volume will be indispensable for those teaching and studying Paul's Letter to the Philippians and Early Christianity."@en ;
