This commentary provides a highly accessible understanding of the pastoral epistles. It is rather short at roughly 300 pages and will be extremely helpful for all who seek to understand these books. Fee excels in general exegesis and in doing so brings to life what the text means. He also does a better job than most at connecting individual paragraphs together. Thus this is one of the few commentaries that doesn't get so focused on individual verses that it loses sight of the greater context. Overall, I would recommend this commentary but feel that both Guthrie's Tyndale commentary and Towner's IVP commentary are slightly superior in what they offer.
Fee is brilliant and has a strong imagination. Much of this commentary was helpful but there are some warnings to be given. Fee's background information to the pastorals is speculative and far from certain. Also, he mutes the clears passages on biblical gender roles by cultural arguments that are far from proven. Outside of his take on gender (especially 1 Timothy 2 and 5), he has much to offer and much that is helpful. He is a compelling and interesting writer.
As usual Gordon Fee offers a work that exemplifies sound exegesis. I bought this commentary to prepare for a teaching series on Titus. Fee's comments are clear and concise, making it a great resource for the busy pastor or laymen. For those wanting more content concerning controversial or technical matters, this work will not suffice. Fee does not devote much attention to representing the various interpretations on select problems found in the Pastoral Epistles. Overall this is a good resource.
Gordon Fee has condensed a great deal of scholarship into a very readable commentary. Fee places the text within a context that gives structure and insights into some serious issues facing two congregations, and the responsibilities of both leaders and members to properly represent Christ to their local communities.

Excellent book for pastors and the like that need to go further than normal commentaries.
Great help for school very informative
This commentary has been a great help in my sermon preparations. Clear, concise and easy to read with the best of biblical scholarship. I highly recommend it!
Clear, at the point and fresh.
