May 27, Ellen Trautner rated it really liked it. I thought this was a very helpful commentary to lead a Bible study into a deeper study of Philippians. My small group went through this together. I liked this one more because, and maybe because Philippians is a letter, not a history-focused book, Wiersbe didn’t speculate hoyful people’s feelings and motivations that are nowhere in the Bible.
In this book, he explains historical context, uses I thought this was a very helpful commentary to lead a Bible study into a deeper study of Philippians. In this book, he explains historical context, uses lots of references from other parts of the Bible, explains word meanings in the original Greek: At wierssbe end of each chapter there are questions for self-reflection as well as prompts for group discussion.
We never got through all the prompts each week because there was just so much to talk warfen. He definitely focuses a lot on application and really encourages readers to participate in their sanctification.
It’s short and easy to read. It’s probably not the deepest commentary out there, but it’s very accessible and I’d recommend it to anyone looking for a good introduction to Ioyful. Jul 27, Grace rated it it was amazing. Another fabulous commentary by Wiersbe!
I read this as Wwarren did an inductive study on Philippians. I was richly rewarded by his thoughts after I had done my study on a passage. I love how he would call to my attention a word, an idea, that I had passed over.
He never failed to make the ancient truths of Paul into relevant, timely teaching for today. Here are just a couple of the things I loved. He writes, “Because of his chains, Christ was known, and because of his critics, Christ was preached and because of his crisis, Christ was magnified. Again something I passed over completely.
To the average warreen, Christ is a misty figure in history who lived centuries ago, but as the unsaved watch the believer go through a crisis, they can see Jesus magnified and brought so much closer The telescope brings distant things closer, and the microscope makes tiny things look big. To the unbeliever Jesus is not very big. Other people and other things are far more important.
But as the unbeliever watches the Christian go through a crisis experience, he ought to be able to see how big Jesus really is. So many more gems in here. So worth the time. Apr 19, Debbie rated it it was amazing Shelves: This older version of the book has the study questions for each chapter at the back of the book, but the newer version puts them at the end of the chapter they’re for. The book was easy to read and understand, and it drew out some great points from the Bible text.
Each chapter covered a chunk of Philippians that covered a similar theme, but you need to read the Scripture from your own Bible “Be Joyful” is a Bible study, but it reads more like a Christian Living book or commentary on Philippians. Each chapter covered a chunk of Philippians that covered a similar theme, but you need to read the Scripture from your own Bible as the verses weren’t provided in the actual text of the study.
It simply assumed you read the verses that were being talked about.
Be Joyful (Philippians): Even When Things Go Wrong, You Can Have Joy by Warren W. Wiersbe
I think this is a great book for any Christian to read. It made some important points that new Christians should hear and older Christians probably could use hearing again. Overall, I’d recommend this book. Excellent commentary for anyone from pastor to lay-person. These are Wiersbe sermons, but they read well as a very basic, concise commentary, and have a good balance of technical word-studies as well as devotional application.
The commentary is concise enough that it is a good read to prepare for more in-depth study by a pastor, preparation for a small-group meeting for a church member, or a personal devotional study by an individual.
Mar 03, Marianne rated it it was amazing. Wierbe’s “Be” Series has the perfect mix of “devotional” and “Bible study”. His application is rooted in serious, but approachable study for any believer. Unlike some devotionals that are “fluff” or “studies” that get lost in Greek, Wiersbe has wareen uncanny ability to take Greek word study and apply it in a timeless fashion. Indeed, this book was originally published in jouful year I came to know the Lord but is still as fresh today as back then.
May 03, LoRee Peery rated it it was amazing. I was amazed by Wiersbe’s continual use of alliteration. He makes seeing and using what we have as Christians so easy to understand. Of course, it all began with the Apostle Paul, who wrote the book of Philippians. In a nutshell, according to Wiersbe, we believers have: Those four S’s express adoration, supplication, appreciation, and contentment.
Mar 20, Clara Roberts rated it it was amazing. Wiersbe says that if we have the single mind of Phillipians 1 we can give God adoration. If we come with the submissive mind of Phillipians 2 we can come with supplication. If we come with the spiritual mind of Phillipian 3 we can show appreciation. All of this gives us the secure mind of Pillipians 4. I loved this book. These commentaries are fantastic! Warren Wiersbe really brings scripture to life in a way that gets right to joyfuo heart of the matter but isn’t too heavy or theological.
The Be series is a must for anyone preparing a sermon or undertaking Bible study. Sep 24, Frans Karlsson rated it it was amazing Shelves: Great commentary to Philippians. I liked the way he was speaking about different mindsets. The single mind, submissive mind, a spiritual mind and a secure mind. A helpful book to read while studying Philippians, recommended. Jun 30, Danielle rated it it was amazing. I have yet to read a book by Dr Wiersbe that isn’t great!
He’s incredibly insightful, gives lots of Scripture references to back up his points, and doesn’t write over our heads. God definitely speaks through Dr Wiersbe! Mar 01, Susie rated it it was amazing. I’ll be reading it regularly. Aug 31, Laura Carter rated it it was amazing. Practical, scriptural, godly advice on counsel taken from the book of Philippians.
Wonderful messages In each study there a many wonderful messages for a tried soul. Warren Wiersbe is one of my favorite pastors. Mar 02, Gerald rated it really liked it.
