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.

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

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.

"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 todays 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 Pauls writings to Timothy come to life in helpful and clarifying ways, with a surprising freshness and relevancy."
"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."
