The Pastoral Epistles: First Timothy, Second Timothy, and Titus
Fiore, Benjamin

Collegeville, Minn.: Liturgical Press, 2007 pp. xxi + 253. $39.95

Series Information
Sacra Pagina


Description: In this commentary Benjamin Fiore, S.J., places the Pastorals in their historical and literary context. The reader will find here a solid introduction to parallel literary forms in Latin and Greek literature and particular descriptions of the way in which these documents use ancient rhetorical forms to achieve their paraenetic and hortatory purpose. Drawing on his parish experience as well as his academic training, Fiore also provides reflections on the contemporary pastoral application of these books, giving readers a renewed appreciation for the “pastoral” label these epistles bear.

Subjects: Bible, New Testament, Deutero-Pauline Epistles, 1 Timothy, 2 Timothy, Titus, Literature
