Excerpt

Fascination with the end times is not just a recent phenomenon. The young church at Thessalonica, having taken root during Paul’s brief stay there, pondered when the end might come as well. Paul, in order to instruct them more fully, wrote them two letters, which taken together expound the “already-and-not-yet” character of his views of the end times. His instruction and counsel can serve us well today.

In this careful study of 1-2 Thessalonians, readers will find an introduction that sets the letters in context and surveys their general content, highlighting issues surrounding their occasion and purpose. Passage-by-passage commentary follows that seeks to explain what these letters mean to us today as well as what they meant for their original hearers.

Students, pastors, Bible teachers and everyone who wants to understand Paul’s message for the church will benefit from this excellent resource.
