The Geeky Calvinist5 Stars Out Of 5A Great New Commentary SeriesSeptember 23, 2017The Geeky CalvinistQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5There are many phenomenal commentaries, yet they usually fall into a segmented categories, yet the new series Biblical Theology for Christian Proclamation, breaks the mold. For it is not only scholarly, pastoral, and insightful, but also extremely practical. This series is a planned 40 volume series, produced by B&H Academic and is edited by T. Desmond Alexander, Andreas J. Kstenberger, and Thomas R. Schreiner, and has just added its second entry.
This second entry is titled, 1-2 Timothy & Titus, and is written by Andreas J. Kstenberger. Divided into five main sections this commentary becomes a must have for every Pastor who plants and teaching through the Pastoral Epistles. The first of these five sections is that of the introduction. The introduction of this work deals with the traditional introductory matters of a commentary. While being a relatively small commentary Kstenberger dedicates 54 pages to these introductory matters. It is been a long time since I have wholeheartedly agrees with everything and introductory section of a commentary, it was a pleasant surprise. Furthermore Kstenberger make sure to place these Pastoral Epistles in their proper context. This is not only helpful but necessary to understand the authors original intent, the original understanding, and original meaning. Each of these parts shape the context to which a person can expositors from.
In matters relating to the commentary itself commentary on 1st Timothy weighs in at just under 150 pages long while the commentary on 2nd Timothy is around 85 pages followed by the commentary on Titus at around 50 pages. Despite their short length the amount of thoroughness and depth that Kstenberger places on the exposition of the text makes each page in this commentary worth its weight in gold.
Lastly, the greatest part of this commentary is not in the standard commentary section but rather in the last section of the book which deals with Biblical and Theological themes. This section of the book which takes up a third of the book is worth the price of the book itself. Kstenberger explain the themes of each of these three Epistles in great detail giving practical comment on each as well as theological death so that no stone is left upturned. When I next preach on the Pastoral Epistles this commentary will be at the top of my list. I do not know how I have taught through these books of the Bibles without utilizing this super commentary supplicate bye personal exegesis of the text so that Im owed proclaim the gospel in the correct Orthodox light while being able to reach the most people for Christ. I therefore highly recommend this commentary to all pastors who devote themselves to exegetical preaching while seeking to further their understanding through commentaries.

Jimmy ReaganLeesville, SCAge: 45-54Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5A Home RunMay 7, 2017Jimmy ReaganLeesville, SCAge: 45-54Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This second release in the Biblical Theology for Christian Proclamation (BTCP) series by B & H Publishing is a home run. Andreas Kostenberger has produced a conservative, thoughtful, and winning commentary on the Pastoral Epistles. I anticipated a good volume based on what he has written and edited on the highly-debated passages of these books in the past, and if anything, this volume exceeds my expectations. You have to love a book that holds to biblical inerrancy, has a complementarian viewpoint, and does not run off the rails with esoteric or pointless scholarly misconceptions.
His Introduction covers much of the typical information that you would find in any substantial commentary on the Pastoral Epistles, which he prefers to call LTT, or Pauls letters to Timothy and Titus. Authorship, date, relation between the three letters, and the roles of Timothy and Titus (he sees them as apostolic delegates rather than pastors). He further discusses canonicity, authenticity (which he fully accepts), chronology, and historical context. He has an interesting section on literary analysis and structure as well.
Still, the commentary proper is what I loved. Even better, he always did his best work in the harder passages. Passages on pastoral qualifications, women in ministry, and household code were handled with aplomb. As is an aim of the series, he beautifully draws out theology too. Can you tell Im really high on this commentary? I couldnt imagine not using it in any future study in the Pastoral Epistles.
I received this book free from the publisher. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commissions 16 CFR, Part 255.
