2 Timothy : Finishing the Race

Full Product Description

In an increasingly pluralistic and secular age, what could persuade a person to give up an attractive career and enter full-time Christian ministry? In 'Finishing the Race', Chris Green encourages readers to identify with Timothy's fears and failings.

In turn, Chris also highlights Paul's urging to his readers, both in his day and in ours, to keep the faith and finish the race in this clear, sound and reliable commentary on 2 Timothy that is at once thorough and accessible.
