1 & 2 Timothy and Titus: A Commentary in the Wesleyan Tradition


Beacon Hill 2016

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


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.

As with all New Beacon Bible Commentaries, this volume includes not only the helpful critical resources intrinsic to every commentary but also the skilled insights of an expert biblical interpreter.

In the Logos edition, this volume is enhanced by amazing functionality. Important terms link to dictionaries, encyclopedias, and a wealth of other resources in your digital library. Perform powerful searches to find exactly what you’re looking for. Take the discussion with you using tablet and mobile apps. With Logos Bible Software, the most efficient and comprehensive research tools are in one place, so you get the most out of your study.
