Writing in an approachable and anecdotal style, Tom Wright helps us to see the pastoral nature of these three letters. They are not just instruction books for junior disciples, but a guide to a way of life, and in many ways appropriate to all Christians. Two strands in particular run through the letters. First, Paul is anxious that those who profess the faith should allow the gospel to transform the whole of their lives, right down to the deepest parts of their personality. Second, he is anxious that every teacher of the faith should know how to build up the community in mutual support, rather than tear it apart through the wrong sort of teaching and behaviour.
