Pastoral Epistles : Sacra Pagina
Full Product Description
The Pastorals differ from Pauls own letters in being addressed to single individuals, coworkers of Paul who have been placed in charge of particular churchesTimothy apparently in Ephesus, Titus in Crete. They provide instruction for community leaders, both the individual addressees and other leaders whom they will appoint. The specification of certain offices within the local churches is one of the features that appear to locate these works in a later phase of church development.
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.
Benjamin Fiore, SJ, is president and professor of religious studies at Campion College at the University of Regina (Canada).
