Timothy and Titus were two of Paul’s faithful associates. When problems arose in a church, Paul knew he could depend on either one of them to handle the situation. In these three epistles, Paul encourages his younger colleagues in their roles as pastors. He advises them on worship, leadership, integrity issues, and generation gaps. With confidence, the aging apostle passes the torch of faith and exhorts them to be Christ’s representatives on earth. John Calvin’s exploration of the key passages of these three pastoral epistles not only provides historical insight into the early church, but also guidance and encouragement for pastors and lay leaders today.
John Calvin (1509–1564) was perhaps the Reformation’s most influential Bible teacher. He had a powerful influence on many Christian leaders, including John Knox, John Bunyan, Charles Spurgeon, William Carey, George Whitefield, and Jonathan Edwards. Known best for his Institutes of the Christian Religion, Calvin also wrote landmark expositions on most of the books of the Bible. In addition to Calvin’s commentary on Genesis in this collection, Logos also offers Calvin’s 500 Collection (108 volumes) and the Institutes of the Christian Religion.
