Item description for The First and Second Letters to Timothy (The Anchor Yale Bible Commentaries) by Luke Timothy Johnson...

Who has authority in the church? What role do women play? These questions, as ancient as they are modern, were first posed in the Letters to Timothy. These epistles contain considerable controversy on topics including the place of women in the church, homosexuality, and "false teachers." This enlightening commentary features a new translation, introduction and commentary by Luke Timothy Johnson. Johnson offers a balanced discussion of Paul's letters, remains accessible to lay readers, and gives in-depth arguments for Paul's authorship.

Publishers Description
The letters of Paul to Timothy, one of his favorite delegates, often make for difficult reading in today's world. They contain much that make modern readers uncomfortable, and much that is controversial, including pronouncements on the place of women in the Church and on homosexuality, as well as polemics against the so-called " false teachers." They have also been of a source of questions within the scholarly community, where the prevailing opinion since the nineteenth century is that someone else wrote the letters and signed Paul's name in order to give them greater authority.
Using the best of modern and ancient scholarship, Luke Timothy Johnson provides clear, accessible commentary that will help lay readers navigate the letters and better understand their place within the context Paul's teachings. Johnson's conclusion that they were indeed written by Paul himself ensures that this volume, like the other Anchor Bible Commentaries, will attract the attention of theologians and other scholars.

Reviews - What do customers think about The First and Second Letters to Timothy (The Anchor Yale Bible Commentaries)?

Refuting the Critics  May 12, 2008
This is a very important and superb commentary on the Letters to Timothy
because Luke Timothy Johnson is refuting in a very skilled and well-founded manner the academic consensus that argues for the inauthenticity
of these letters. Formerly, Johnson had been an adherent to this majority
position, but in the course of his teaching as a professor he has begun the process of reexamination which resulted in his devotion to the contrary position, i.e. the Pauline authorship of these letters. For this,
the defence of authenticity, he is fighting "the good fight" (1Tim 1,18; NIV). His approach may be sketched as follows: The Letters to Timothy are
real rather than fictional letters, they are to be understood within the
framework of Paul's ministry (he proposes Acts 20,1-3 as a possible setting) and the socio-historical realities of the first century. Each letter addresses a particular situation and must therefore be considered
individually rather than as part of a larger group. They have to be compared within the Pauline corpus, e.g. 1Tim with 1Cor. Concerning the lack of any literal coherence of 1Tim - the strange combination of personal paraenesis and instructions about the community's life - Johnson draws a comparison with the royal correspondence (mandata principis) of the Roman emperors and shows that 1Tim belongs to a well-established epistolary form. On 2Tim too, Johnson offers a first-rate exegesis. Furthermore, I have highly appreciated Johnson's outlines of the
"real-life occasions" and the setting of the letters and his amount of source material, especially from hellenistic moral discourse. In my view
this commentary is very recommendable!
