First and Second Timothy, Titus (Catholic Commentary on Sacred Scripture)
In the second volume of the Catholic Commentary on Sacred Scripture (CCSS), George Montague offers a Catholic pastoral commentary on the letters to Timothy and Titus, presenting sound exegesis followed by reflection on the pastoral, theological, and practical applications of the text. The CCSS offers readable, informative commentaries from the best of contemporary Catholic scholarship to help readers rediscover the Word of God as a living word in which God himself is present. Each commentary relates Scripture to life, is faithfully Catholic, and is supplemented by features designed to help readers understand the Bible more deeply and use it more effectively in teaching, preaching, evangelization, and other forms of ministry. This series is perfect for professional and lay leaders engaged in parish ministry, lay Catholics interested in serious Bible study, and Catholic students.

I co-teach a parish Bible study class, and this study guide has been a Godsend. Father Montague’s commentary is comprehensive, comprehensible, and easy to use. I look forward to other commentaries by Father M.

The book is well written and provides a good background to understand the early Christian church.

I was delighted to find this fine book at our Parish Adoration Chapel a few months ago. After many years of working together with men, both young and old, seeking to live our lives according to Scripture, it is a delight to have this useful work. Fr. Montague writes in a style that is very clear and understandable, and provides good cross-references for further reading. The Index of Pastoral Topics is particularly useful for us ordinary people. I think I will attempt to collect the entire series.

Fr. Montague’s book is an excellent commentary weaving together the historical background, theological relevance, church tradition with practical reflection and applications for readers today. He also covers textual variants in the manuscript. This commentary unpacks the meaning of the text, section by section, line by line and explains both the details and the big picture. It is excellent, easy to read, and I recommend this book for everyone!

What was divinely inspired then to St. Paul to become Holy Scripture, is now explained to us “modern” bible-studiers—from beginners to very experienced—by the commentaries thorough word exegesis. I strongly recommend for personal or group bible study.
