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.

Is it possible for a commentary to be both technical and accessible, comprehensive and concise, academic and pastoral? Weima has produced precisely such a commentary on the Thessalonian letters. One would be hard–pressed to find a full-length, up-to-date treatment of these letters that offers more than Weima’s. Judicious in judgment, gracious in engagement, and clear in argument, this commentary catapults Weima to the front of an increasingly crowded field. It will become a standard, go-to resource for scholars, ministers, and students alike.

Todd D. Still, the William M. Hinson Professor of Christian Scriptures, Truett Seminary, Baylor University

Already an acknowledged expert on the Thessalonian letters, Weima offers fellow Christians a clear and erudite interpretation. This exegetical commentary now stands among the authoritative works on 1 and 2 Thessalonians.

    Amazon identifies the "list price" for the (as yet unpublished) hardcover edition as USD49.99 - the same as the Regular and Print prices noted by Logos. The actual sale price on Amazon for the hardcover, however, is USD34.35 (around 30 per cent reduction). The Logos Pre-Pub price is a reduction of 10 per cent compared to the regular price, instead of the more usual 20 per cent. All this means is that this single volume of the Logos edition on Pre-Pub is quite quite high - as other correspondents have noted - and I would have thought a better deal could have been negotiated. My only question: Why is the Logos price tied to the hardcover price instead of the projected paperback edition price (which would make more sense)?

  4. Deepak Kumar Singh
    It is very unfortunate that Logos has put up a high price for this pre-pub which is normally not the case. I suppose that the rush for making quick profit for resources which are in demand has led Logos to give such price. The prices on the titles are being pushed out of the budget of the common man more often. Logos should realize that its customers live in different parts of the world which have different economic and financial situations and it is very difficult for customers originating from countries with weaker economy to catch up to such high prices which may be burden-able in some parts of the world. Logos is supposed to be a software to be used by common people and not just for the elite and the rich. If Logos continues to charge such high prices from customers thoughtlessly, it will have repelling effect on everyone, looking for other options. Hoping that the voice of the common man will be heard.

    Such a gigantic sale should include at least 20% to 30% off the item. LifeWay is beating your offer on it's bookstore offerings. I'm looking at a sale paper with a 33% off any item. Pastors get an automatic 20% savings all year long. The ebook industry is going to do better in order to compete.

    $44.99 is like 3 meals of lousy food at McDonald's. The book is long lasting- the lousy food is not. What is important here?

    These prices are prohibitive. As such I will not be regularly able to take advantage of the various offers.

    I am sorry, but these pre-pub prices are like a mean joke.
