42 editions published between 1963 and 2005 in 3 languages and held by 767 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the earliest times, commentators have regarded these few verses from the Epistle to the Philippians as doctrinally very important, and a whole literature has grown up around them. Dr Martin studies the passage partly for its own sake as the quintessence of Pauline thought on the person of Christ, and partly as an example of an early type of Christian literature known as 'cultic' or 'confessional'. He sees it as a carmen Christi, a Christological ode used among early believers. Its importance, as Dr Martin shows, reaches far beyond the devotional. The Church which sang this hymn proclaimed for the first time the three 'epochs' in the existence of Christ: he is hailed and confessed first as pre-existent, then as incarnate and humiliated and finally as triumphant. The hymn is thus the earliest extant statement of the basis of the whole Christology of later times

37 editions published between 1974 and 1992 in English and held by 643 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Epistle to the Colossians, famous for its great expression of cosmic Christology, is also, in the words of the author, "one of the first Christian apologies or defensive statements of the faith over against its rivals that we possess". The main purpose of the Epistle is to refute certain teaching which denied the supreme importance of Christ. Due attention is given to the background against which this heresy developed, and to evidence which has been discovered in recent years

Ephesians, Colossians, and Philemon by Ralph P Martin( Book )

16 editions published between 1991 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 614 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In his commentary, Ralph Martin singles out two themes that are high on today's agenda of theological and practical inquiry. These themes are the cosmic dimensions of christological teaching and the role of the church as God's locus and agent of reconciliation. In this examination, the author allows Paul's voice to be heard again on these important themes. (Publisher)
The theology of the letters of James, Peter, and Jude by Andrew Chester( Book )

11 editions published between 1994 and 1999 in English and held by 560 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The letters of James, Peter, and Jude have been greatly neglected within the Christian tradition: James, because it seems both to attack Paul's gospel and also to lack any coherent, overall argument or theology of its own; Peter and Jude because they lack the specificity of the Pauline letters and because the personalities of the authors are hardly direct and immediate. Andrew Chester argues that James is more theologically significant than is usually considered the case, and has a distinctive role to play in the contemporary discussion of the Christian faith. He sets James in context and discusses its main themes, exploring its significance especially for issues of power, justice and Christian living. Ralph P. Martin similarly stresses the importance of 1 and 2 Peter and Jude and demonstrates how they cast light on Jewish Christianity in its early development and show how the post-apostolic church used the memory of Peter
