After teaching many times from the book of 2 Timothy, John Stott writes, "I have been impressed afresh by the timeliness for today of what the apostle writes, especially for young Christian leaders. For our era too is one of theological and moral confusion, even of apostasy. And the apostle summons us, as he summoned Timothy, to be strong, brave and steadfast."

In this revised Bible Speaks Today volume, Stott explores the perennial lessons of Paul's final epistle. We see Paul call the young leader Timothy to courageously persevere in the truth and in his calling, not yielding to the pressures of public opinion or the surrounding culture. Highlighting key themes such as guarding, proclaiming, and suffering for the gospel, Stott also considers the historical background and applications for readers today.

This revised edition of a classic Bible Speaks Today volume includes updated language and Scripture quotations and a new interior design.
