This superb commentary — the culmination of Jerome Quinn's life's work on the Pastorals brought to completion by William Wacker — provides a new translation of 1 Timothy along with notes and commentary. The NOTES section of the book offer detailed philological analysis of the majority of the words used in these Pastoral Epistles. The COMMENT sections guide readers through the complicated theological and practical issues facing the heirs of Paul in the Christian church.
Religious Studies Review
"The commentary will benefit the serious and persistent reader and be a source mined by generations of scholars to come."
The Presbyterian Layman
"The exegetical, historical and theological breadth and depth of this work will reward serious students of the Pastoral Epistles."
Jouette M. Bassler
—Perkins School of Theology, Southern Methodist University
"A rich, readable, and rewarding commentary. The introduction is a model of clarity; the commentary proper is filled with theological and exegetical insight. This commentary is certainly the magnum opus Jerme Quinn intended it to be, and it is destined to become the standard English-language reference work on these letters."
Philip H. Towner
—United Bible Societies
"With the appearance of his Anchor Bible commentary on Titus, Jerome Quinn established a unique foothold in the perilous terrain of Pastoral Epistle scholarship. The appearance of this volume, with the immense assistance of William Wacker, completes his project. It is a major contribution to our understanding of the language of these letters and a mine of philological information. Likewise, its distinctive reconstruction of the historical, social, and literary context of 1 and 2 Timothy will be a healthy stimulant to ongoing discussions about their theology and relation to Paul. An important scholarly work."
