Dr. Bill Creasy's lecture on Phillippians, the 11th book of the bible, analyzes St. Paul's letter, likely to the church of Philippi, written around A.D. 62. In this series of biblical lectures presented by Logos Bible Study, Dr. Creasy looks deeply at the historical context and theological questions raised by each of the books of the Bible. An incredibly articulate speaker, Dr. Creasy taught at UCLA for over 20 years and has extensive experience in biblical studies. His well-paced performance in this audio lecture is thoughtful and charming.
Paul had a special love for the church and people of Philippi, a Roman military garrison town in northern Greece, known as Macedonia in Paul’s day. During his second missionary journey (A.D. 50-52) this was the first church he founded on the continent of Europe, and it is the home of Lydia, Paul’s confidante and very close friend. Join Logos Bible Study’s Dr. Bill Creasy as he explores the tone and content of this very affectionate epistle, written during Paul’s stay in Rome, A.D. 60-62.

This is another great lecture series from Dr. Bill Creasy. He is always incredibly insightful and engaging. He often supplements the material with personal stories which are relevant and interesting. He has taken several trips to Israel and the Middle East where he visits the locations depicted in the Bible and he shares those first hand accounts which enables him to take you back to that point in time that the scripture is talking about.
"A rather Cursory walk through the book"
Not worth purchasing on its own for one credit. Only 2.5ish hours of input and some of the material is repeated from the Acts study which is much more detailed and interesting. Maybe there is just very little to say about the book of Philippians. I feel an urgent need to look elsewhere and dig deeper. Bill uses an expletive at one point that puts people like me off!
