Product Description

Explore Paul's three letters to Timothy and Titus within their historical, religious, and cultural settings with Philip Towner's seminal commentary The Letters to Timothy and Titus [NICNT] covering 1&2 Timothy and, of course, Titus.

Highlighting the wealth and breadth of modern scholarship and its vast diversity of perspectives on these books, Towner marshals well-argued, reasonable, and compelling evidence in support of Pauline authorship.

He sets out the rationale underwriting his historical approach, questions certain assumptions of recent critical scholarship, and establishes the uniqueness and individuality of each letter. With a superb translation of the Greek text and thorough footnotes, bibliographies, and indices, this addition to the NICNT continues its reputation for scholarly integrity, incisive analysis, and biblical faithfulness and as such is an excellent reference for pastors, students, and scholars.

Scot McKnight

When reading this commentary, I felt as if I were sitting in a room listening to Paul and his associates explain the gospel in ever fresh ways for a new day. . . Phil Towner's readable, exciting exposition of these wonderful letters will usher many into a new age of studies on the Pastorals.

Craig L. Blomberg
-Denver Seminary
Few if any scholars could be more qualified to give birth to this volume...Towner's newest work fills an important gap--an up-to-date, exegetically solid, mid-range commentary on the English text, fully informed by the Greek and wholly abreast of current scholarship. Rejecting the unproven theory of non-Pauline authorship and ably highlighting the individual distinctives of each letter, often obscured by the homogenizing label 'Pastoral Epistles,' Towner has produced what may wind up being the most useful commentary among the broadest range of English-language readers for many years to come.

I. Howard Marshall
-University of Aberdeen
The mature work of a scholar who has had a love affair with the letters to Timothy and Titus over a quarter century, this is arguably the finest and most useful commentary based on the English text of the letters (with adequate discussion of matters Greek in the footnotes)...Student and preacher alike will treasure this user-friendly treatment for its careful summarizing of essential data and also for its numerous shafts of fresh light from a scholar who knows all the contemporary discussion but is not beholden to any authority except that of the text itself.

    In some ways, this is a model commentary. It is as thorough as could be imagined. The high page count is ably used to examine all possible issues. Towner is well schooled in this portion of Scripture and his time spent there is evident throughout. But I am sadly frustrated by his handling of 1 Timothy 2, the well known passage regarding women in the church. It is not that I disagree with his conclusions, although I do. Such disagreements are often productive. It is rather that I am saddened by the argument he has constructed to buttress his position. In this area of the book, he moves from solid ground to speculation and constructs his case upon soft sand. To me, this is a decision that has far reaching repercussions in today's world and the quest for an egalitarian application of Scripture, seemingly at all costs. When ideology dictates to exegesis, the results are tainted.

    Towner has done a marvellous job in this commentary. This is probably the most exhaustive commentary on the pastorals with more than 900 pages. The arguments are well reasoned and his conclusions worthy of consideration.

    I gave it 4 stars simply because it is not as clearly written as Mounce's commentary and his egalitarian presuppositions are read into 1 Timothy 2:9-15. Mounce's exegesis is more solid.

    Other than that, this is a great commentary on the Pastorals.

    God bless

    Towner had already spent many years wrestling with these epistles prior to the completion of this book. He was involved in the production of Marshall's commentary and had written his own full-length commentary in the IVP series. So it is no surprise to find that his NIC work reflects such a high level of competence. The introduction is very detailed and very helpful as is the commentary proper. In many ways this is written in the tradition of Kelly, Guthrie, and Fee, but the space provided allows for a much more in-depth analysis. And while the work of others serves as a foundation for much of what is found here, Towner clearly presents an independent approach as well. Particularly helpful are the remarks concerning the need to examine the Pastoral Epistles individually in addition to considering them as a unit. This is an excellent work and is well worth the price. I recommend it highly.
