Reviews - What do customers think about First and Second Timothy, Titus (Catholic Commentary on Sacred Scripture)?

Excellent  Dec 23, 2009
The book is well written and provides a good background to understand the early Christian church
 
Catholic Bible Study  Oct 11, 2009
Author brings a lot of scholarship and insight from a Catholic perspective into these short New Testament books. The exegesis of the holy writing is spoiled for me by speculation about the authorship of these books. This and the other title (The Gospel of Mark by Dr. Mary Healy) are books that I want on my shelf for future re-reading and meditation, along with the other titles that will be appearing in this series by Baker Academic.
 
A PASTORAL WORKERS HANDBOOK  May 24, 2009
I was delighted to find this fine book at our Parish Adoration Chapel a few months ago. After many years of working together with men, both young and old, seeking to live our lives according to Scripture, it is a delight to have this useful work. Fr. Montague writes in a style that is very clear and understandable, and provides good cross-references for further reading. The Index of Pastoral Topics is particularly useful for us ordinary people. I think I will attempt to collect the entire series.
 
Good perspective on the difficulties faced by the Early Church  May 12, 2009
I recently used this book by Father Montague in a class I took and in a class I taught. So my comments will include the comments of many of those who were in the class I facilitated.

First as a student, I found the book to be a very thorough treatment of the Pastoral Epistles, particularly in the cross references to Old Testament, New Testament and Catechism. When I put in the extra effort to pursue these references, I achieved a greater understanding and depth, not only in what Father Montague was saying about the particular passage, but also in the way in which the Church was applying what Paul's recommendations were to Timothy and Titus in establishing the new Church.

From a teaching experience, I can share that the questions posted on the publisher's website to be used with the book in a class environment could have benefited, perhaps, by a direct application of these cross references in order to answer fully the questions. The questions are appropriate for students of Scripture who are less familiar with the Bible, as they are more "Scriptural Application" kinds of questions, rather than in-depth study questions.

Some of those attending my class at the Parish were able to share personal situations and thoughts in a Scriptural context, and enjoyed the kind of "soul-searching" (words of one of the attendees) discussion the questions provoked. Others were hoping for more directed, in-depth study. All agreed, however, that the material in the book was well written, thought-provoking, and led to a more profound understanding of the early church and how it has developed. As another attendee stated,"I understand why the development of the magisterium was so important in keeping the young Church aligned with the Apostolic teaching."

I would recommend Father Montague's book for both a personal library addition, and as a source book for facilitating a class.

One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic  May 2, 2009
One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic
These are the words I would use to describe this promising new series: Catholic Commentary on Sacred Scripture, of which I just finished a 4 month study of I and II Timothy and Titus. Our scripture study group found this study to draw us to the very time and place in which this was happening and really show us the formation and tradition in the early Church. It helped me see how they were led to live the Great Commission: "Go... teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you." What was divinely inspired then to St. Paul to become Holy Scripture, is now explained to us "modern" bible-studiers--from beginners to very experienced--by the commentaries thorough word exegesis. I strongly recommend for personal or group bible study.
