1 & 2 Timothy and Titus are letters of counsel from the heart of a pastor. In them, Paul gives encouragement, instruction, and practical ministry advice fitting not only for his recipients but for modern readers. The book of Philemon deals with the Gospel within the context of complex cultural and social arrangements. How does the Gospel apply to an escaped slave? Ironside’s commentary outlines the key themes of each of these books in accessible and easy-to-understand language.
Harry Allen Ironside, one of the twentieth century’s greatest preachers, was born in Toronto, Canada on October 14, 1876. Though his education stopped with grammar school, his fondness for reading and a retentive memory put his learning to use. His scholarship was recognized in academic circles when he received honorary degrees from Wheaton College and Bob Jones University and was invited as frequent lecturer at Dallas Theological Seminary. Dr. Ironside was appointed to the boards of numerous Bible institutes, seminaries, and Christian organizations. He also served as director of the Africa Inland Mission. Ironside preached widely throughout the United States and abroad. He served as pastor of Moody Memorial Church from 1930 to 1948, and during his lifetime, he preached more than 7,000 sermons to over 1.25 million listeners.
