The Roman colony at Philippi is used to demonstrate how entrenched those values were in Philippian society. The books of Acts and Philippians are also examined in view of these social values.

Review of the hardback: 'Hellerman jumps into the deep waters of Phil. 2.6–11 with an attractively simple thesis … The whole argument is carried through straightforwardly and effectively. … a good contribution to the task of situating 2.6–11 in its context at Philippi.' Journal for the Study of the New Testament
