This commentary series has a unique ability to compact a large amount of commentary in a relatively small book. This commentary by Gordon Fee, on the Pastoral Epistles, is no exception. One of the strengths of the commentary is the focus on the flow of the argument of the entire letter. He deals with individual verses but in the context of the structure and argument of the overall epistles. Fee holds to Pauline authorship and presents an "egalitarian" perspective on the controversial passages. His discussion and presentation of the opposing "complementarian" perspective is limited. The commentary is reasonably technical, with Greek words transliterated in the commentary and notes. The additional notes at the end of each section are helpful for further information on textual issues, theological controversies, etc. The commentary is primarily exegetical, so has limited discussion of application or help for the preacher. Fee bases his commentary on the NIV translation, however frequently comments where he disagrees or would suggest a different translation or emphasis. A good, readable commentary on the Pastoral Epistles. This commentary would assist any reader to develop his or her understanding of the flow and details of the epistles.
