It is encouraging to find a commentary that is not only biblically trustworthy but also contemporary in its application. The NIV Application Commentary will prove to be a helpful tool in the pastor’s sermon preparation. I use it and recommend it.

    This commentary is frustratingly long-winded. Just when you think Liefeld is about to come to a conclusion on what the text means, he delays revealing his application, while slowly, repeatedly, and incrementally trying to prepare the reader to accept layer after layer of precepts by which he will later reveal his conclusion. After finally reading his conclusion, I am under the impression the reason for this, was because he knew he couldn't just come right out and tell you what he believes, or it would obviously contradict what the passage plainly states. For example, before revealing his application of what 1 Timothy 2:11-15 means for us today, he reasons that if opponents of the no-restrictions on women view are willing to accept the idea that women don't have to wear head coverings today, even though 1 Corinthians 11 insists on it, then they should also be okay with finding "alternate" ways for women to not teach or exercise authority over a man today, even if that means letting women teach and exercise authority over men. He states: "If it is reasonably argued that there are other ways women today should observe the eight truths in 1 Corinthians 11 than by wearing head-coverings, it is certainly also reasonable for women to observe the two truths in 1 Timothy by other means than refraining from teaching and exercising auhority. (NIV Application Commentary, on 1 Timothy 2:11-15). Liefeld subtly presents this kind of crafty reasoning again and again, claiming to the effect that if we don't let him reach similar conclusions in his application of the text, then we are being "inconsistent" and hypocritical. That's not an exegetical argument. It's a twisted, political justification. Despite his denials that he's yielding to cultural relativism during the "exposition" phase, Liefeld ultimately dismisses what 1 Timothy 2:11-15 says about not allowing women to teach or exercise authority over a man as being a culturally irrelevant "hinderance" for evangelism today. While he agrees the text DID plainly mean what it said about prohibiting women from teaching or exercising authority over men at the time it was written, he claims that was only a temporary restriction, due to the cultural situations existing in Paul's day. He then concludes that for our day, we should do the exact opposite, or else we're a "hinderance" to God's greater goal of making the gospel appealing to the lost. I've never seen such a subtle, crafty, deceitful attempt to circumvent the plain statements of Scripture, as this commentary presents, excepting for Satan's similar lies to Eve, in Genesis, by which he tricked her into trying to usurp God's authority.
