At times I enjoy reading critical commentaries by those in the academy, and then, there are times, I go more for commentaries written by those in the pastorate.
Many people don’t realize that the late John R.W. Stott was a pastor. He had the heart of a pastor for sure. The Living Church: Convictions of a Lifelong Pastor is a good reminder.
Now to Stott’s commentary on 2 Timothy. It’s rich and vivid. It truly comes from the heart of one who understands the pastorate.
I commend it, especially for those in pastoral ministry.
