This overview will be wonderfully helpful to parents in their sacred task of Christian parenting, and a great ally for Sunday school teachers, Scripture teachers and youth workers. It meets a real need. It deserves to be widely used and I very much hope it will be.

With deft ability, David Jackson has made complex matters simple and placed them within their wider biblical context. This book is neither complicated nor simplistic. It is clear and helpful. David Jackson’s book is a wonderful resource for Bible Study groups, for Christian Education classes or for individual reflection. It is biblically grounded, theologically rich, historically informed, relevantly applied and accessible. I am sure you will be enriched by it.

As we went into more depth and detail we were enriched with a greater understanding and clarity of Paul’s language, culture and society. Through being drawn into Paul and Timothy’s world, the relevance of the truth of God’s word speaking into our world today was clearly evident.

David Jackson takes us on an interesting journey where we experience, along with Job, ‘the depth of God’s grace to us in Christ – Who, by his own choice, suffered more than Job to save us from the cruelty and dominion of sin.’ This book is a must-read for anyone going through difficult times.
