From worship and prayer to family and the use of money, the book of 1 Timothy is full of implications for life in the local church. But beyond these practical truths for all believers, Ryken writes, "Paul's purpose in 1 Timothy is to help his spiritual son remain true." Thus the book has special application to those in gospel ministry. These truths that helped Timothy in his day are just as applicable to church leaders in ours??both for personal godliness and for the collective life of the church. Whether for personal study or sermon preparation, Ryken's exposition is a sure guide to all who are interested in this pastoral epistle. As are all of the books in the Reformed Expository Commentary series, this exposition of 1 Timothy is accessible to both pastors and lay readers. Each volume in the series provides exposition that gives careful attention to the biblical text, is doctrinally Reformed, focuses on Christ through the lens of redemptive history, and applies the Bible to our contemporary setting.
