Setting the Church in Order
In this short study of one of the neglected books of the Bible,
we see Paul at his pragmatic best. For those who separate
things spiritual into "high" and "low", this book presents an
opposite view. For though Paul is dealing with the practical
questions of church administration, those questions bear upon the
very life of the church. Titus faces a severe test; he is a
young man, appointed over those older - and some of the older men
are corrupting the church. Paul's practical advice touches
upon the ordinary as it reveals the soaring grace of God.
