"Jouette Bassler's quantity at the Pastoral Letters is a version of cautious, essentially written cogent interpretation. She offers trustworthy consciousness to the problematical bushes alongside the exegetical course, but with no wasting sight of the wooded area. prepared by way of literary devices yet no longer warding off tricky verses, Bassler's observation retains prior to the reader the unfolding historical past of the early Christian neighborhood from which the textual content emerges. it really is undoubtedly the simplest source we've at the Pastoral Letters." -- Charles B. Cousar, Columbia Theological Seminary
"Bassler's remark has the crispness of fashion and no-nonsense caliber approximately it that one has come to anticipate from its writer. The underlying studying is clear all through. It leads to cautious, severe exegesis that areas the Pastorals securely of their social and ancient context. All suitable matters are defined and mentioned. Bassler is very solid at referring the reader to different texts that remove darkness from her personal, with a extensive variety over Jewish, Greco-Roman, and Christian texts. She presupposes the non-Pauline authorship of the Pastorals, yet in a different way has no particular axes to grind. As an introductory observation for theological scholars, it will possibly no longer be bettered." --Troels Engberg-Pedersen, Copenhagen college, Denmark
