In this monograph the North American New Testament scholar James P. Ware first surveys early Jewish views regarding the conversion of Gentiles (23-159; with an emphasis on the significance of Isaiah). Against this backdrop, Ware examines in three chapters various aspects of mission in Philippians 1:12-2:18. He first sketches "The progress of the Gospel in Philippians 1:12-18a" (163-199). The chapter "Suffering and Mission in Philippians 1:18b-2:11" (201-236) is of particular interest. Ware rightly notes that it is essential to understand Philippians 1:12-18 within the larger context of Paul's exhortation in 1:12-2:18 (actually of the whole letter).
