The Pastoral Epistles throw light on the early days of the church and the final phase of Paul’s life. This commentary scrutinizes the biblical text while attending to the missional, pastoral, and spiritual challenges facing the worldwide Pentecostal and charismatic (or renewalist) movement. It is written for today’s church without ignoring scholarly literature and cultural perspectives. The ministry of women, the appointment of elders, prophecy, church governance, living as a Christian in the Roman Empire, the end times, charismatic gifts, spiritual warfare, slavery, and ordination all feature.
Kay and Moxon bring a unique combination of skills and experience to this commentary on the Pastoral Epistles—a biblical scholar and a Pentecostal historian, each with lived ministry experience. The result is . . . a concise yet accessible exploration of Paul’s pastoral literature that equally doesn’t avoid the sometimes complex and controversial historical and theological aspects of these letters.

In this volume, Kay and Moxon join the ranks of other Pentecostal scholars in producing a commentary on the Pastoral Epistles. Whilst aware of and informed by the scholarly developments and debates surrounding 1–2 Timothy and Titus, the authors constantly read the biblical text with one eye on the Pentecostal and charismatic readers for whom they write. The appearance of their commentary is a welcome addition to Pentecostal commentaries on this portion of Scripture.
