Theology of suffering for Christ in 2 Timothy

Now that’s a book nobody would want to read.

Today I started doing a bit of study on suffering in 2 Timothy. Wondered if anybody had written a book on the theology of suffering for Christ. And soon thought that would be a book nobody would want to read.

Ran across this little item: “How to Endure Suffering: Ten Practical Principles from 2 Timothy” (pdf, 3 pp.) which deserves a read. Though it lacks a bit of perspective, it has some good thoughts. I’m not familiar with the site or author.

I don’t know how Google gets away with it (the big and powerful don’t play by the same rules), but I like the little I’ve read from the NICNT commentary on 2 Tim.
