Paul is reaching the end of his ministry. Timothy needs help in his. And so the apostle writes to his young friend and protege, urging him to guard the gospel, preach the gospel, and live the gospel.
Phillip Jensen opens up these letters for us, calling readers to do just what Timothy did—to love Christ and teach truth in our generation, and to teach others to do the same.
This accessible, absorbing expository guide opens up this book for new and mature Christians alike. It is more applied than a typical commentary, making it a great resource for personal devotion, as well as useful for leading small group studies or sermon preparation.
Until now, I have found the "....For You" series excellent: practical, thought-provoking, challenging and not too bogged down theologically. With this one, however, the style of writing is turgid, confused and the author clearly reveals a dislike of the ESV translation, since that is the only translation whose shortcomings he highlights. If you are looking for a good treatment of 1&2 Timothy I would have no hesitation in recommending John Stott's offerings in the Bible Speaks Today series.
