Product Description

Called to Lead: Paul's Letters to Timothy for a New Day is the sequel to the author's previous volume, Called to Be Church: The Book of Acts for a New Day.

In this book, Anthony Robinson and biblical scholar Robert Wall expound Paul's two pastoral letters to Timothy, which contain crucial messages for churches today. Featuring both careful exegetical study and dynamic contemporary exposition, Called to Lead interprets the text of 1 and 2 Timothy as Scripture and applies it to today's church--without shying away from vexing issues such as the church's use of money, leadership succession, pastoral authority, and the role of Scripture.

Publisher's Description

Following up on their previous volume, Called to Be Church: The Book of Acts for a New Day, biblical scholar Robert Wall and pastoral leader Anthony Robinson here join forces again.

Featuring both exegetical study and dynamic contemporary exposition, each chapter of Called to Lead first interprets the text of 1 and 2 Timothy as Scripture and then engages 1 and 2 Timothy for today's church leaders. The book covers many vexing issues faced by church leaders then and now -- such issues as the use of money, leadership succession, pastoral authority, and the role of Scripture. Through it all, Called to Lead shows how Timothy remains a text of great value for the church today

Endorsements

For a very long time the pastor-to-pastor Pauline letters to Timothy have been marginalized by some and grossly misinterpreted by others. It is now time for us to rediscover these letters and to put them into imaginative conversation with the contemporary realities of church and culture. That is precisely what this fine study accomplishes with exegetical care, theological acumen, and pastoral insight. Seminarians, ministers, and other leaders in Christian congregations should read Called to Lead carefully and consider together its potentially transformative implications for the church.
-Michael J. Gorman
St. Mary's Seminary and University

Full of down-to-earth biblical wisdom, Called to Lead reminds us that there's not a leadership issue we can come up with that hasn't been addressed by Scripture already...The chapter on lay ministry is already worth the price of the book.
-Lillian Daniel

Lillian Daniel
-- coauthor of This Odd and Wondrous Calling
"Full of down-to-earth biblical wisdom, Called to Lead reminds us that there's not a leadership issue we can come up with that hasn't been addressed by Scripture already. . . . The chapter on lay ministry is already worth the price of the book."
 
Journal for the Study of the New Testament 
"This book is a fine combination of exegetical study and pastoral theology. It would be a helpful resource for pastors, leaders in the church and students."
 
Review of Biblical Literature 
"The book is well-suited for church leaders, educators, church members, and students who desire to explore fresh thinking from the Pastoral Epistles in language relevant to today’s church. It is very well organized, with each chapter having discussion questions to help readers probe the content area further. . . . A very helpful interdisciplinary dialogue in which Paul’s writings to Timothy come to life in helpful and clarifying ways, with a surprising freshness and relevancy."
 
Christian Century
"Many biblical commentaries include both scholarly exegesis and pastoral commentary. But the pairing of these two authors is particularly fruitful. Their writing has the feel of an extended dialogue between two smart and faithful Christians who share common commitments but bring difference areas of expertise to the conversation. The book succeeds in delineating ways in which Acts is both relevant and helpful for church life today."

Catholic Biblical Quarterly 
"Thorough exegesis. . . . Provides the readers with a pastoral interest a rewarding reading of these often neglected epistles."
