The Pastoral Epistles are helpful, insightful, and pulsing with spiritual warmth as they are encountered by the busy pastor. Many a pastor and church leader would find much wisdom in reflecting again in Paul's sound advice for dealing with both older and younger men and women. Paul's apprehension of divine grace shown to him as the 'worst of sinners' shows a gratitude to God which no Christ must ever leave behind. The appeal to 'endure hardship.like a good soldier of Jesus Christ' constantly reminds believers of the need for stamina and staying power in the Christian life. Written primarily for the busy pastor, staff member, or Christian leader who wants to learn better Paul's message to Timothy, this commentary is deliberately written so as to flow easily without extensive discussion of detailed issues of exegesis, theology, and linguistic insight.
