I am persuaded that there is nothing which would more profoundly impress the world than just the illumination of the ordinary manners of the professing Christian with the grace and light of the Lord Jesus.

Paul’s letter to the church at Philippi is one of the most beloved entries in the New Testament. Its encouraging discussions about God’s grace, Godly living, joy and how to press forward in the Christian life have inspired countless generations.

While there have been many studies on Philippians, Dr. Jowett’s is something entirely special and distinct. With his customary warm tone, keen empathy and deep humility, Jowett’s verse-by-verse exposition inspires devotion, deepens joy, and clothes the soul in praise – all of which were Jowett’s goals for the reader in this book.

Wonderfully clear and approachable, The High Calling of God is essential reading for both those new to and familiar with the book of Philippians.

John Henry Jowett D.D. (1863-1923) was an English Congregationalist minister and one of the most regarded and beloved preachers during the turn of the century. He pastored at the influential churches of St. James Congregational Church in Newcastle-upon Tyne, Carrs Lane Congregational Church, Birmingham, Fifth Avenue Presbyterian Church, New York City and Westminster Chapel, London. He founded the Digbeth Institute of Birmingham, was president of the National Council of Evangelical Free Churches and was honored as a Companion of Honour.
