Pastoral Epistles
Word Biblical Commentary
Share |

: In this volume on the Pastoral Epistles (1 & 2 Timothy and Titus), William Mounce makes an impressive contribution to the Word Biblical Commentary series. He writes from an evangelical perspective, and provides several distinctive features: He gives a strong defense of Pauline authorship, arguing that the letters belong within the life and thought of the apostle; Using sources such as Acts and early Christian traditions from extrabiblical sources, Mounce reconstructs a historical scenario of Paul's later life and the false teaching that threatened the churches in Ephesus and Crete; The author's new translation of the text is provided, complete with notes; Mounce comments on the Greek text, but provides English translations for those unfamiliar with Greek, allowing them to understand the flow of thought; The explanation section for each passage looks at the meaning of the passage as a whole, integrating the detailed comments into a cohesive picture; A general bibliography is provided, as well as bibliographies that are specific to particular sections.
