In imag- ination I have sat down beside Timothy and have tried myself to hear and heed this final charge from the aging apostle... 'On each occasion I have been impressed afresh by the timeli- ness for today of what the apostle writes, especially for young Christian leaders. For our era is one of theological and moral confusion, even of apostasy. And the apostle sum- mons us, as he summoned Timothy, to be strong, brave and steadfast.'
