Pass It On is the ringing battle cry from the Apostle Paul in his two letters to Timothy, and pass it on is the same message and challenge to followers of Christ who study those letters today. The books of 1 and 2 Timothy are a gold mine for Christians who want to learn (or review) the basics in spiritual living. With careful scholarship and clear writing, Robert Mounce gives you the tools to mine that gold as he covers both letters in verse by verse style - - from knowing how to avoid going wrong, to discovering the role of women in the church; - from finding qualities you need for church leadership, to guarding against cashing in on attractive new converts; - from refuting the legalism of super sainthood, to training you to be in good spiritual condition; - from learning to give tender loving care, to avoiding the love of money. These are just a few of the many truths Paul shares with Timothy and which the author helps you apply to your own spiritual life. The result is a practical commentary, a manual of church discipline...a series of instructions on how Christians in a local community should organize themselves in order to worship God and live together in Christian love.
