In its original context, I Timothy chapter 3 is directed towards overseers (or elders) and deacons in the church. This chapter includes a very detailed list of the requirements and character traits that should be present in those who seek to serve in God's house. As believers and followers of Jesus Christ, each one of us should always strive to live a life that is "Above Reproach," because it is Jesus Christ that we are representing. Therefore, this passage of scripture becomes a great measuring tool for all believers to monitor the spiritual growth in their lives. I believe this was the intent of Paul's instructions: ."I am writing you these instructions so that, if I am delayed, you will know how people ought to conduct themselves in God's household, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and foundation of the truth." I Timothy 3:14-15 This study of I Timothy 3 will help you examine each one of these attributes more deeply and challenge you to apply them to your own lives as you strive to be like Christ.

Ten years after Dinah deserted Harry to marry a friend of his, Harry still loves her obsessively, though his image of her has ceased to relate to her independent reality. Unable to shake this fixation Harry resolves, for the sake of his sanity, to get Dinah back. 'Somewhere Beyond Reproach is Tim Jeal's highly readable and often amusing second novel... The writing is sensitive and perceptive.' Daily Telegraph 'Jeal is a forceful yet urbane writer who takes perception far beyond the familiar level of perception. His first person narrative, cold and simple in its short sentences, is cleverly combined, in form and style, with an ingenious detachment.' Glasgow Herald 'Jeal shows considerable powers of cool and accurate observation. His wine is dry and light and has a bouquet.' Punch 'An intricate and absorbing novel.' Evening News
