The WBC is the best-selling multi-volume commentary series in the market today. WBC authors are all experts in their field and skillfully bring the text to meaning through careful exegesis and exposition. Each WBC contributor creates his own translation based on the best texts and literature available. The WBC has the largest bibliography of any commentary.
Ralph P. Martin (1925-2013) was Distinguished Scholar in Residence at Fuller Theological Seminary and a New Testament Editor for the Word Biblical Commentary series. He earned the BA and MA from the University of Manchester, England, and the PhD from King's College, University of London. He was the author of numerous studies and commentaries on the New Testament, including Worship in the Early Church, the volume on Philippians in The Tyndale New Testament Commentary series. He also wrote 2 Corinthians and James in the WBC series.
William D Mounce (Ph.D., Aberdeen University) lives as a writer in Washougal, Washington. He is the President of BiblicalTraining.org, a non-profit organization offering world-class educational resources for discipleship in the local church. See www.BillMounce.com for more information. Formerly he was a preaching pastor, and prior to that a professor of New Testament and director of the Greek Program at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary. He is the author of the bestselling Greek textbook, Basics of Biblical Greek, and many other resources. He was the New Testament chair of the English Standard Version translation of the Bible, and is serving on the NIV translation committee. See www.BillMounce.com for more information.
JackFortville, InAge: Over 65Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5Excellent book for Elder training.August 7, 2013JackFortville, InAge: Over 65Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This book on Pastoral Epistle is a good study for those who are interested in Eldership training for the biblical model of the New Testament church, it clarifies the Greek text and is a bit on the technical but necessary aspect of the doctrine of church
I have other books by William Mounce which are also very excellent.
KaliKalulushiGender: male5 Stars Out Of 5Puttin the cookies where the kiddies can get 'em!!August 11, 2012KaliKalulushiGender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5There is no question about it, this is the best commentary on the Pastoral Epistles. I don't normally appreciate the format of the series but for this one, I will make an exception. In fact, I found it to be particularly helpful.
Each section begins with a discussion of the form/structure/setting and ends with an explanation where he ties the whole discussion of the passage together so that you don't miss the forest for the trees. Though the series is meant to be a highly technical series, this commentary is surprisingly so readable. Mounce has a knack for simplifying complex issues. He does this as well in his Basics of Biblical Greek. I haven't read such a good commentary since Leon Morris on the gospel of John (NICNT).
I also have Towners Commentary on the Pastorals in the NICNT series but it not as clearly written as this one. If you had money to buy only one commentary, by all means get this one. For sermon preparation, this is a must!
Christopher Myers5 Stars Out Of 5March 26, 2003Christopher MyersAll I have to say about this commentary is "BUY IT!" This is BY FAR the best available commentary on the Pastoral Epistles. If you only have one commentary on the Pastorals, make it this one. I would encourage you to read Buddy Boone's reviews of this commentary and Marshall's.
Buddy Boone5 Stars Out Of 5October 17, 2001Buddy BooneHere is the work of a lifetime of research by Dr. William Mounce. The detail Mounce provides on the Pastorals is immense. In the massive introduction, Mounce makes the most convincing argument to date for Pauline authorship. The exegesis is lucid and convincing. The textual information is exhaustive and extremely helpful. His closing explanations of each section are carefully structured for maximum comprehension of the context. Thankfully, Dr. Mounce has translated the lion's share of Greek, which makes it accessible to those who have little knowledge of Greek. Use it with his NIV English-Greek New Testament and you will study these epistles in a way you only dreamed of before! Greek students will treasure this work! A well rounded commentary library should include this work along with the NIGTC work by George Knight, the ICC work by I. Howard Marshall, and the NIBC work by Gordon Fee.
