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.

In 2010 the Calvin Institute of Christian Worship is exploring themes and images from the book of Philippians, guided by this new resource. We are joining a wide variety of churches, colleges, and other worshiping communities who are focusing their study, reflection, and worship on the book of Philippians.
