Item description for 1 & 2 Timothy and Titus: A Commentary (New Testament Library) by Raymond F. Collins...
Overview The Old Testament Library has become one of the legendary series of our era, known for its rich historical/literary insights based on an extensive review of the text and its major themes. Collins is the first author to carry this approach over to the New Testament. The same hallmarks are evident.
The Pastoral Epistles present difficult questions for the modern interpreter, including such matters as their authorship, literary characteristics, and social orientations. Raymond Collins carefully leads the reader through the texts of these three documents, attending to the flow of the Pastor's thought and locating it within the Jewish and Hellenistic culture of his day.
The New Testament Library offers authoritative commentary on every book and major aspect of the New Testament, as well as classic volumes of scholarship. The commentaries in this series provide fresh translations based on the best available ancient manuscripts, offer critical portrayals of the historical world in which the books were created, pay careful attention to their literary design, and present a theologically perceptive exposition of the text.
