These oft-neglected New Testament books actually deal with topics that should be of great interest to today's readers. First and 2 Timothy and Titus are known as the Pastoral Epistles, and such deal with practical matters of church management and personal conduct. The letter to Philemon is the only private letter we have from Paul, and it tells of a runaway slave who later may have become bishop of Ephesus. As with his other books and about which millions of readers can testify, Barclay displays a remarkable writing talent that combines a profound mastery of the ancient languages with the wider conversation of secular literature and a deep devotion to Scripture.
