Would highly recommend this book for all, but especially for all local Church leaders.
Daniel Combs
Dr. Phillips gives readers an extensive outline that greatly aids the expositor in breaking down the epistles.
B. Dempsey
His association with Dr. Stephen F. Olford and Dr. Jerry Vines substantiates his high view of Holy Scripture.

"The John Phillips Commentary Series presents the accumulation of a lifetime achievement from this gifted man of God. His association with Dr. Stephen F. Olford and Dr. Jerry Vines substantiates his high view of Holy Scripture. His affiliation with the Moody Bible Institute further illustrates his attestation of Biblical inerrancy. His application of the Bible text demonstrates his strategic grasp of God's Word. His alliteration will endear him to preachers and teachers everywhere. I wholeheartedly recommend it!"

--Dr. Franklin L. Kirksey, Pastor, Teacher, Mentor, Writer, Author of Sound Biblical Preaching: Giving the Bible a Voice

John Phillip's Expository Commentary, Exploring the Pastoral Epistles, is a helpful little commentary that would be beneficial for any pastor or Sunday School teacher to help them better understand and teach the Scriptures. The commentary is written in a very readable, understandable way, which is no small statement of modern commentaries today.

In addition to its readability and accessibility, one of the greatest strengths of this work is its detailed outlines of the pastoral epistles (1 Timothy, 2 Timothy, and Titus). The outline of 1 Timothy alone, a book with only 6 chapters, covers 15 whole pages! The commentary then moves along in unison with this outline, expositing each part, section, and subsection to help the reader better understand each individual section and phrase of the pastoral epistles.

Another strength of this commentary was its application of the biblical text. This ties in, I think, with its accessibility for even lay leaders in the church, teaching Sunday School or leading a Bible study, since it helps the reader not only think about what a particular phrase means, but how to apply it to our lives, and specifically, how to teach it. I found Phillips's notes on particular phrases and words especially helpful in thinking through how to teach a passage in a small group or Sunday School setting. In fact, just this last weekend I had the privilege of teaching a youth Sunday School Class on Titus 2:11-14, and I found Phillips's commentary especially helpful in thinking through what Paul meant by us living "self-controlled, upright, and godly lives."

As far as critiques go for this commentary, I just have a couple.
