The great doctrines of salvation by grace, divine election, principles of effective Christian testimony, the coming of the Lord, divine judgment, and the joy and peace of fellowship with Christ are all dominant themes in these epistles. Walvoord writes on these doctrines with the ordinary reader in mind, yet gives adequate treatment to the major problems that arise. His desire is that this unfolding of divine revelation as contained in the Thessalonian epistles will prove a blessing to earnest students of the Word and will encourage further study of these messages to the young Thessalonian Christians.
