If Paul didn't write the Pastoral Epistles, how can we preach from them -- and why should we? The academy's queries about the authorship of the Pastorals have had a deleterious result in the academy, Robert Wall believes, with a trickle-down effect among the church's clergy who rarely teach or preach from these letters. In this paragraph-by-paragraph theological commentary on 1 and 2 Timothy and Titus Wall powerfully demonstrates the ongoing relevance and authority of these canonical epistles for the church today. Uniquely, Wall applies a "Rule of Faith" methodology -- five core beliefs articulated in Tertullian's Prescription Against Heretics -- for interpreting the texts as sacred Scripture. Also, interspersed throughout the commentary are case studies, stories of prominent Christian leaders and faith communities that vividly instantiate key themes of the Pastorals. Wall's innovative yet reverent approach will revive the interest of students, pastors, and other Christian leaders in the Pastoral Epistles.
