Stott writes: During the last five years I seem to have lived inside the
second letter of Paul to Timothy. In my imagination, I have sat down beside
Timothy and have tried to hear and heed this final charge from the aging apostle
occasion I have been impressed afresh by the timeliness for today of what the
apostle writes, especially for young Christian leaders. For our era 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.
