Entrusted with the Gospel has been successful in whetting my appetite for a life-long study of the Spirit's message through Paul in the Pastoral Epistles. I have come away with a heightened sense of the many debates which still rage in regard to these letters. This work has helped me get a feel-acting as a guide-for sorting through the issues with more clarity than I possessed before. Most of all, I have grown in an ability to read the texts of 1 Timothy, 2 Timothy, and Titus with a much greater degree of accuracy and understanding. There is much to glean from the Pastorals, and this volume provides a firm foundation from which to delve into the depths of what the Spirit has to say through Paul. If read prayerfully and reflectively, with the actual text of Scripture open (which, I suspect, is how the contributors would wish their work to be approached), I cannot see how Entrusted with the Gospel could be read without a passion for the person of Christ, the purity of His bride (the church), and the centrality of His Gospel resulting. For any serious student of God's word, Entrusted with the Gospel will be more than beneficial for developing a clearer understanding of the Spirit's message through Paul in the Pastoral Epistles.
I. Howard Marshall's final chapter on "The Pastoral Epistles in Recent Study" is worth the price of the book.
This book balances the detail required of academic publication and the need for accessibility and readability with precision and maturity. In addition to the main chapters of Entrusted with the Gospel, the editors have provided an immensely helpful "Bibliography of Recent Literature on the Pastoral Epistles" at the end of the book.
Highly recommended to any student interested in the Pastorals. Essential for the student who is serious.
You will likely find some articles more interesting than others, just as I did, as a matter of personal interest. For example, I’m so convinced that the books in the New Testament are written by those they’re attributed to, that I find a discussion of pseudonymity pointless. Still, if that’s your thing, you’ll find a good article about it here.
I found the article that describes the stewardship theme of the Pastoral Epistles to be very interesting, as was the one on cohesion and structure. There is good coverage of Christology and the prevalence of salvation found in these letters. One of the very best articles was the one on ecclesiology as there are so many local church issues discussed in the Pastoral Epistles. Paul Wolfe has an article that exegetes several of the more debated versus in these epistles. In addition to ethics and mission in the pastoral epistles, well-known scholar Howard Marshall gives a detailed overview of all the recent literature on these epistles (since 1998).
This book accomplishes exactly what it sets out to do. The contributors are more conservative and the scholarship more dependable than many such books. This book is important in any major scholarly study of the Pastoral Epistles.
I received this book free from the publisher. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255.
