Philippians is part of the Life Change Series published by NavPress. The book of Philippians found in the Bible is just four chapters long, but each is a gold mine of wisdom. This study helps the reader find it in a slow and steady way, which I believe leads to a better understanding. The basic method follows the pattern of inductive study, but adds other benefits like questions challenging you to think about your life and apply what you've read. There are also plenty of ideas for groups working on this study together. There are areas set aside for further study or further thought allowing you to determine the depth of your study. The last few pages of the book contain a long list of study aids you can use to further study Philippians or any other book of the Bible.

I admit that I was sceptical when I requested the book to review. I have done many studies that ended up being shallow and overly simplistic, which I believe does a disservice to the Bible and the believer. I am happy to say, I was wrong. This is an excellent study to do alone or in a group setting. The book is thoroughly explored and there is plenty of writing work to do to record what you learn. And there is plenty of food for thought to challenge you as you go about your day. I highly recommend this study and look forward to doing more from the Life Change Series in the future.
