Now that I am about halfway through the quarter, I feel that I have a pretty good read on what Philippians resources are out there. So, I (humbly) offer here my favorite books on Philippians. For each category, I have tried to limit it to 2 items. That means that many resources I LOVE will not make the list, but for it to be a helpful list I wanted some restriction.
