PHILIPPIANS by Dennis E. Johnson
Reformed Expository Commentary
Philippians is a magisterial treatment of various topics—suffering’s relationship to gospel advance, self-centeredness versus sacrificial service, the basis of a believer’s assurance before God, interpersonal conflict, and finding true contentment—that Paul relates to the touchstone of Christ, his cross, and his resurrection.
Johnson shows how Paul, writing from imprisonment to a church close to his heart, uses his own experience and attitude as exemplars to show the Philippians the difference a Christ-formed mind makes to the way believers respond to adversity, rivalry, conflict, vanity, achievement, the ongoing pursuit of holiness, and the strategic deployment of our resources for the gospel.

ALIENS IN THE PROMISED LAND
Why Minority Leadership Is Overlooked in White Christian Churches and Institutions
Edited by ANTHONY B. BRADLEY
In an age when church growth is centered in Africa, Asia, and Latin America, evangelicalism must adapt to changing demographics or risk irrelevancy. Yet many evangelicals behave “tribally”—valuing the perspective of those like themselves while denying evidence of racial attitudes in the church.
Anthony Bradley has gathered Hispanic, black, and Asian scholars and leaders to share advice on building relationships with minority denominations and valuing the perspectives and leadership of minority Christians (not just their token presence). Learn how evangelicalism can more faithfully show how the gospel brings together in Christ people from all tribes, languages, and cultures.
