Philippians – Pursuing Spiritual Maturity by Gregory Brown – A thorough exposition and study of God’s Word


Recently I was offered the opportunity to read Pastor Gregory Brown’s new Bible study Philippians – Pursuing Spiritual Maturity – The Bible Teacher’s Guide.  I had not heard of Pastor Brown or his Bible studies before so I looked up information on him and found favorable reviews and feedback on his work.  So I agreed to take a look at his new Bible study in the book of Philippians and I’m so glad I did.

In these spiritually perilous days in which we live in, it’s heartening to find a solid Bible study from a Pastor and teacher who takes the Word of God seriously.  Pastor Brown does solid and thorough exposition of the Scriptures.  He begins the study talking about whom the author is, the historical background and purpose of the book.  He goes on to look at what are the signs and marks of a healthy (and unhealthy) church, its members and how we can develop spiritual maturity, grow in our walk with Christ and with body of Christ where we worship and serve. 

I found this study very convicting and challenging.  As you work through this study you will be examining yourself according to God’s Word and allow the Holy Spirit to work in you through the washing of the Word. 

If you want an easy Bible study that will make you feel good and doesn’t take much time, this probably isn’t it.  But if you want to grow and mature in your walk with Christ and have real and lasting changes in your inner man which are reflected outwardly, then this study is for you.  If you want to be better equipped to lead a Bible study, this book will give you a solid understanding of the book of Philippians. 

I would like to thank Pastor Gregory Brown for the opportunity to read his Bible study Philippians – Pursuing Spiritual Maturity.  I look forward to going through other studies by this gifted teacher.  Be sure to check out his website, Gregory Brown, where you can find his Bible studies, sermons, articles and blog.

I was offered this book free in exchange for an honest review.  I was under no obligation to give a favorable review.
