9780060623333: Return of Magic (A Good news commentary)

Dr. Fee's commentary on 1 and 2 Timothy and Titus, originally part of the Good News Commentary series, is revised and reset in an accessible but in-depth format for pastors, students, and laypeople. An introductory chapter deals with basic questions of authorship, background, and themes, then each section of Scripture is expounded, accompanied by notes on items in the text that need further clarification.

"[Fee's commentary on 1 and 2 Timothy, Titus] . . . is ideal for students, pastors, and teachers. It is a model of clarity and organization and consistently reflects a judicious examination of exegetical issues. Indeed . . . I think it is one of the best available [commentaries] on the pastoral epistles. Fee's skill in writing commentaries is as evident in this volume as it was in his magisterial volume on 1 Corinthians."
—Thomas R. Schreiner, Bethel Theological Seminary

From the Back Cover:

Expert help for understanding the Bible

Each volume in the Understanding the Bible Commentary Series breaks down the barriers between the ancient and modern worlds so that the power and meaning of the biblical texts become transparent to contemporary readers. They present a careful section-by-section exposition of the biblical books with key terms and phrases highlighted and all Greek transliterated. Notes at the close of each chapter provide additional textual and technical comments for those who want to dig deeper. A bibliography as well as Scripture and subject indexes are also included. Pastors, students, and Bible teachers will find in this series a commitment to accessibility without sacrificing serious scholarship.

1 and 2 Timothy, Titus explores Paul's heartfelt concern for the newly planted churches and the leaders who served in them. These letters of compassion, instruction, and admonition were meant to instruct and strengthen the leaders and the members of these churches. Filled with great insights taken from the original language, this volume will help you understand more deeply the pastoral love of Paul.

Book Description Harper & Row Publishers, New York, NY, 1972. Cloth. Book Condition: Very Good +. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good +. First Edition. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. This book probes into the historical and psychological roots of the contemporary absorption with magic and witchcraft. Here, magic is seen to be an alternate mode of consciousness which reflects the experience of a collective imagination, drawing upon the author's own experiences as a seminarian who became disillusioned with both his church and his society. A guide for further reading is included. This copy is clean and solid. Bookseller Inventory # 016099
