Read by Sam Stinson

(4.8 stars; 195 reviews)

Polycarp's Letter to the Philippians (often simply called To the Philippians) composed around 110 to 140 AD is described by Irenaeus as follows: "There is also a forceful epistle written by Polycarp to the Philippians, from which those who wish to do so, and are anxious about their salvation, can learn the character of his faith, and the preaching of the truth." (J Stevenson, A new Eusebius [London: SPCK, 1965] p. 120) This is one quote from the epistle: "Stand fast, therefore, in this conduct and follow the example of the Lord, 'firm and unchangeable in faith, lovers of the brotherhood, loving each other, united in truth,' helping each other with the mildness of the Lord, despising no man."

Very well read, thank you. These words are wonderfully true, but almost word for word directly from the Word, lol.

This book has reignited something in me. Truly, it was so short but direct. It made me very aware of where I am coming up short and gave me such hopefulness moving forward.

Fellow Christian.
