The Christian life is not easy. Whether we're walking out our faith, sharing the gospel, or helping in ministry, we can become discouraged as we strive to live for Christ. The apostle Paul understood that believers would always face challenges, obstacles, and setbacks. The books of 1 & 2 Timothy, Titus, and Philemon offer a wealth of encouragement for every Christian and share an underlying, powerful theme: Never give up!
The Wiersbe Bible Studies Series explores timeless wisdom found in God's Word. Based on Dr. Warren W. Wiersbe's popular "BE" series, each study provides topical, relevant insights from selected books of the Bible. Designed for small groups, this eight-week study features, excerpted commentary from Be Faithful, engaging questions, and practical applications, all designed to help you connect God's Word with your life.

Wiersbe Bible Study Series: 1 & 2 Timothy, Titus, & Philemon: It's Always too Soon to Quit is a must read addition to Wiersbe Be series. I've read several volumes in the Be series, and this encourages readers to go much deeper in their understanding of Scripture. I do wish that I had had Be Faithful to read along with it, the reader doesn't get as much of Wiersbe's thoughtful commentary as I would like. However, this guide asks readers to read a chapter or two of the assigned books and then has several questions that will make readers dig deep and think hard about the Scripture. Wiersbe's studies are unparalleled at making the Bible fresh and personal for each reader. I can't stop singing the praises of this book and the rest of the series.Was this review helpful?

This short 8 lesson bible study packs a lot of information and encourages deep thought. Although these books of the Bible appear to be focused mostly on how the leaders of the church should behave, they also apply to the average member at large. The study could be done by anyone, the wording is easy to understand, but the questions could also develop into a very deep exploration of your basic beliefs and behaviours. The study could be done alone or in a small group. I did find that I felt at a disadvantage since I didn't have the "Be Faithful" commentary book which was referred to throughout study. Although one could use the study without the commentary I do recommend that the commentary be available, especially for groups. I recommend this study for those who wish to be or are already in leadership positions anywhere, church or not, and who wish to really delve into their beliefs and feelings and whether or not they are actually following the teachings of Jesus or following legalistic rules developed by society or the church at large.Was this review helpful?
