Paul’s letters to the Thessalonians address fundamental questions about death, Christ’s return, and the nature of holy living. This volume in the NIV Application Commentary series helps readers learn how Paul’s message to the Thessalonians can have the same powerful and transformative impact today that they did when first written.

Top Highlights

“the result: All believers in Jesus, whether alive or dead at the time of his Parousia, ‘will be with the Lord forever.’” (Page 152)

“What we know and believe about the future ought to shape how we live in the present.” (Page 161)

“1) The future of believers is not so much a place as a relationship.” (Page 158)

“2) For believers, death is not an end but a transition” (Page 159)

“The final destiny of Christians who died before the Parousia is not death, but rather resurrection leading to life with the Lord forever.” (Page 152)

This is the pulpit commentary for the twenty-first century.

—George K. Brushaber, president, Bethel College and Seminary

The NIV Application Commentary meets the urgent need for an exhaustive and authoritative commentary based on the New International Version. This series will soon be found in libraries and studies throughout the evangelical community.

—James Kennedy, senior minister, Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church

It is encouraging to find a commentary that is not only biblically trustworthy but also contemporary in its application. The NIV Application Commentary will prove to be a helpful tool in the pastor’s sermon preparation. I use it and recommend it.

Charles F. Stanley, pastor, First Baptist Church of Atlanta
