Scholars have long debated over the authorship and significance of the Pastoral Epistles-1 and 2 Timothy and Titus. From authorship by Paul himself to authorship by persons unknown writing in the spirit of Paul, the range of scholarly opinion is wide and varied. David Ackerman sifts through these differences and emerges with a well-informed perspective of his own. He expertly takes the reader beyond the debate to the timeless and transgenerational message of these canonical treasures.
