Alan is a Bible teacher. He doesn’t just read the Bible, he studies and researches each passage he reads. Why does he do this? For two main reasons, I think. Firstly, because He wants to get to know God and His Word better himself, and secondly, so that he can share what he has learned with others so they too can enjoy a similar experience. I recommend that you invest in this book, it really will bring Paul’s letter to the Philippians alive in a new and refreshing way.

In the many years I’ve known Alan Hoare, I’ve recognised in him the heart of a teaching pastor. He loves the people of God, His “flock”, recognising that, in the same way Jesus commissioned Peter to feed His sheep, he is called to teach and impart the Word of God into their hearts and minds. Whilst Alan is deep, theologically speaking, he breaks the Word up small so the reader can understand and digest it wherever they are in their faith. You will enjoy and be blessed, challenged and encouraged by Alan’s ministry

It is a delight and a privilege to be able to recommend Alan’s latest book to you. He writes from the heart of a man who has an intense love and passion not just for the Word of God but for Author of the Word, in whose company he has spent much time. I have never failed to be touched by the gracious way in which Alan opens the Word of God to the people of God. In this book you will, like the man in Jesus’ parable, find great treasure that will enrich your soul and expand your spiritual horizons.

Alan’s rich exposition of scripture is both strengthening and challenging. As an author and teacher, his daily approach to unpacking Philippians reveals the wealth and depth of the Apostle Paul’s letter, encouraging and teaching the followers of Jesus in genuine Christianity. Alan brings depth of meaning and practical application in language accessible for every believer in their pursuit of Christlike discipleship.
