First and Second Timothy, Titus, Philemon: Volume 9 - NEW COLLEGEVILLE BIBLE COMMENTARY: NEW TESTAMENT 9 (Paperback)Terence J. Keegan (author)
- We can order this
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.

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
