Weima has written a full and authoritative commentary on 1 and 2 Thessalonians that readers will want to consult regularly and frequently. He brings a wealth of previous research to bear upon his exegesis. The result is well-considered and thoughtful positions at almost every juncture. One of the most appealing features of the commentary is Weima’s interpretation within the context of ancient epistolary structure, rather than the all-too-frequently-used rhetorical analysis. Weima sets the stage for his exegesis and exposition of each section by laying out the literary character and shape of the unit to be discussed. He also provides a detailed and helpful introduction to the commentary that emphasizes the historical background of these letters. Weima shows awareness of the current debate on a wide range of issues in Thessalonians research, while also ably defending traditional positions regarding authorship, interpretation, and even text-critical matters. I am sure that this commentary will be widely used.
