Item description for 1 and 2 Timothy and Titus: To Guard the Deposit (Preaching the Word) by R. Kent Hughes & Bryan Chapell...
Overview J.I. Packer notes that "working pastors, from Luther to Calvin to Lloyd-Jones, have proven themselves to be the best Bible expositors." Keeping with this tradition, the Preaching the Word series continues with a critically acclaimed treatment of Paul's pastoral epistles. Pastors Hughes and Chapell offer revealing exposition and practical insights for contemporary believers.
There are substantial reasons to be energized by the prospect of studying the Pastoral letters of Paul. Between them they teach the proper ordering of the church (1 Timothy), present a developed challenge to all who call themselves disciples of Christ (2 Timothy), and suggest God's plan and priorities for mature ministry (Titus)--all so that the Lord may be most glorified.
Whether you are corporately or privately concerned about the church's--or every Christian's--role and responsibility to communicate the truth of the gospel in this diverse and pluralistic society, the Pastorals offer great perspective. They remind us that, like Timothy, we are to guard what has been entrusted to our care. To fight the good fight. And to keep preaching the Word.
A well-ordered church, a clearly called and mature leadership with its priorities straight, and a body of believers committed to living a godly life in Christ are key to people being saved and coming to the knowledge of the truth. Through the apostle's words and the commentators' insights here, we gain an understanding of what God requires of those who would lead in the local church, as well as those who would be led. Embracing grace, loving godliness, and sharing Christ were not just charges to the early believers, and are not solely the responsibility of pastors, deacons, and elders in the church. They are exhortations for any of us who call ourselves disciples of Christ today. Part of the Preaching the Word series.
