Written from a Wesleyan perspective, this commentary follows your Bible, paragraph by paragraph, making it easy to find answers to the questions that arise in your personal devotions or in Bible study. A loving leader must know how to encourage as he instructs and rebukes his flock. Woolsey reveals to us the wisdom of Paul's approach to pastoral encouragement and reproach as Paul addresses persecution, the second coming of Christ and idleness in the church - issues the church still wrestles with today.
