In a thorough and insightful commentary on Pauls letter to his co-worker Timothy, which the Apostle wrote before and during Neros persecution, Aída Besançon Spencer carefully examines each part of the letter and reveals Pauls rhetorical and stylistic features, as well as placing the letter in the larger biblical, historical, social, and cultural contexts. How Pauls writing related to the ancient communities is enriched by original research gleaned from her explorations of key sites in Rome and Greece. In addition, the author emphasizes Pauls strategies of ministry with his co-workers and their community, while considering the role of women in the church. Throughout, Spencer presents an in-depth exegesis in a readable format enhanced by forty years of ministry.
