Think of today’s church, and the issues that so often have to be faced: establishing a well-functioning eldership, combatting false teaching, upholding the importance of sound doctrine, how we are to live as Christian men and as Christian women, appreciating the grace of God in salvation, and looking forward to the coming again of our Lord Jesus. All these, and many other themes, are carefully and practically worked through in this helpful guide which opens up the message of Titus for us today.
David Campbell was born and raised in Scotland and was converted to Christ as a child. During his bachelor’s degree at Glasgow University he felt a call to the gospel ministry and subsequently spent four years studying at the Free Church of Scotland College in Edinburgh. After being the pastor of the Geneva Road Evangelical Baptist Church in Darlington, England for fifteen years, he began his ministry in Grace Baptist Church, Carlisle, Pennsylvania in 2002. He and his wife, Mairi, have two daughters, Megan and Caitriona.
‘The New Testament is not friendly to broad doctrinal tolerance within the Church. Paul’s “Pastoral Letters” bristle with instruction that false teachers must be given biting rebukes. The Christian life is founded upon a clear apprehension of the truth.
At the same time our Saviour Jesus Christ went to the cross with an interest in the life we live “in the present age” (Titus 2:12). He gave himself for us to provide us with zeal for godliness in the here-and-now. David Campbell weaves these and other themes of Titus together with warm and wise pastoral care.’

‘David Campbell has written a helpful, practical and accessible commentary on Titus. In his warm, insightful and always pastoral exposition, David lucidly opens up Paul’s teaching on subjects that have particular relevance to the church today: eldership, false teaching, the importance of sound doctrine, how we are to live as Christian men and as Christian women, the grace of God in salvation, the coming again of our Lord Jesus. The exposition is always faithful to the text and is enhanced by tailpieces to each section providing guidance “For Further Study” and questions “To Think About and Discuss”.’
—Ian Hamilton, Pastor of the Cambridge Presbyterian Church, England
