Product description

First and Second Timothy and Titus are designated Pastoral Letters because they deal with leadership and organizational issues of the early Christian community. Probably written after the death ofPaul, they nevertheless express what Paul himself would have and could have written to community leaders. Second Timothy gives the greatest amount of biographical material we have aboutPaul. The Letter to Philemon, a miniature but authentic Pauline jewel, is a masterpiece of persuasion regarding a slave's freedom.

Terence J. Keegan's perceptive commentaries on these precious remnants of first century Christianity provide information and insight regarding the gradual growth of the church. There are pertinent lessons here for today's shepherds and their flocks.

Terence J. Keegan, OP, serves as the executive vice president and treasurer at Providence College, Providence, Rhode Island.

This short sample is typical of Sabin's ability to bring readers along, leading us to a fuller understanding and appreciation of familiar bible stories and connecting them to one another and to the Old Testament. Writing Works With this emphasis on the timelessness of the scripture messages, the insights of the commentary itself, and the discussion questions provided. Keegan's work is an excellent resource for individuals and groups.Writing Works Clear and helpful, Keegan's commentary on 1-2 Timothy, Titus, and Philemon will enable those who want to be able to understand Paul's often-neglected 'letters to individuals' to do so. One of its great assets is the way it distinguishes among Paul, his disciples, the history of the church, and what all of this means to us today. Raymond F. Collins, Warren-Blanding Professor of Religion, The Catholic University of America Terence Keegan has composed a short commentary on four of the letters of the Pauline corpus in the New Testament that are addressed to individuals and not to churches. He presents the message of these letters with proper pastoral concern and enlightened interpretation. Students, teachers, and pastors will profit form consultation of this non-technical commentary.Joseph A. Fitzmyer, SJ, Catholic University of America Washington, DC
