This 624-page work is an exegetical and expositional commentary on the Pastoral Epistles. The beginning pastor and the seasoned minister will be better equipped and encouraged to shepherd the flock of God. The Appendices are of extraordinary value to the expositor. They include exegetical and expositional outlines, an annotated bibliography, and a topical index to ministry maxims found in the pastorals.
This is an excellent conservative commentary that aids pastors and counselors who preach and teach the Scriptures to church members and others. It is designed to coach the reader into digging deeper by asking and answering pointed questions that apply to one's spiritual life. The appendices are a treasure that proves to be eminently helpful.

I heartily welcome and endorse this encyclopedic study of Paul's Pastoral Epistles. For years we have had Eugene Stock's Practical Truths from the Pastoral Epistles and W. Edward Chadwick's The Pastoral Teaching of St. Paul: His Ministerial Ideals, but this volume goes beyond them in exposition and application. The beginning pastor and the seasoned minister will both discover in these pages enlightenment, encouragement, and a new sense of wonder and privilege of being a servant of God. You can live in this book for the rest of your life and have a more fruitful and rewarding ministry!

The Pastoral Epistles for Pastors provides an even and thorough treatment of Paul's Pastoral Epistles from a conservative viewpoint. The appendices deserve special note due to their extraordinary value to the expositor... This volume should be on every preacher's bookshelf.
