An Excellent Example of Biblical Scholarship Sep 30, 1999
This Ph.D. dissertation of Dr. Reggie Kidd does not read like a dissertation at all. It is an excellent example of fine Biblical Scholarship, taking the text seriously while interacting with various views. Kidd does make his points. This is not a restatement of others' work, but provides original research and theories on the Pastoral Epistles.
Kidd deals with Martin Dibelius, E.A. Judge, L. William Countryman, David C. Verner, and (Kidd's favorite) Ceslas Spicq. Spicq's (French and yet untranslated) commentary is shown to be of immense value.
Kidd explores the idea of a Christian middle class, upper class, and whether there is an "accommodative ethic" at work in the Pastoral Epistles.
