1 Timothy is an urgent letter to a Christian in the thick of a crisis and a call to the local church to get on with the job God called it to do—spreading the Good News! Simon Robinson applies this message incisively to modern readers in this engagingly written and practical study guide.
Simon Robinson is the senior minister of Walton Evangelical Church, Chesterfield, England. He has also written several other books, all published by Day One, including Improving your quiet time, Opening up Judges, and God, the Bible and terrorism. He is series editor of the Face2face with… books. He also preaches and teaches in Asia and the United States. He and his wife, Hazel, have two sons and a grandson.
This is a heart-warming and accessible introduction to a highly relevant New Testament letter, which is often overlooked today. There are many nuggets of insight into the specific meanings of the original text, which enable this clear exposition to be applied with penetrating relevance. I warmly commend it.

… not without its humour, and very pertinent to our society and church life. This commentary will be an excellent handbook for study groups within the church.
