Paul's first letter to the Thessalonians breathes love, concern and care, and it deals with practical matters for new believers: repentance, faith, living a transformed life, living happily with other believers in church, awaiting the second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ and many other points. In Opening Up 1 Thessalonians, Tim Shenton leads us carefully through all the main aspects of the teaching and provides a good number of thought-provoking questions for further study and for discussion and reflection.
