Shelf Life Book Review: Entrusted with the Gospel

Clifford B. Kvidahl

Entrusted with the Gospel: Paul’s Theology in the Pastoral Epistles
B&H Academic, 2010

This book is a collection of essays addressing themes in 1–2 Timothy and Titus—the pastoral epistles. In this volume, edited by Andreas J. Köstenberger and Terry L. Wilder, scholars respond to questions about the theology, structure and authorship of these writings.

The introductory essay, by Köstenberger, discusses issues surrounding the pastoral letters—from Paul’s theology to current scholarship. Many of the contributing scholars have done extensive work in the pastoral letters. Some of the highlights include an essay on authorship by Terry L. Wilder, an essay on the structure of the letters by Ray Van Neste, and I. Howard Marshall’s concluding remarks on recent scholarship.

If you want to explore some of the crucial issues in pastoral epistle scholarship, this book is an excellent resource.
