Reading Colossians, Ephesians and 2 Thessalonians


Smyth & Helwys 2007

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


This commentary on Colossians, Ephesians, and 2 Thessalonians focuses on comprehending the major themes of the epistles and their relationship to the understanding of the early Christian communities. Centering on the work in its entirety rather than a verse-by-verse methodology, Thurston provides an introduction for each epistle, a commentary and bibliography.

Praise for the Print Edition

A newer genre of biblical commentary. . . The result is refreshing, enhanced by arresting chapter headings, citations of. . . striking parallels from Hellenistic literature, informative notes on the history of interpretation of the text, and selective citations of key scholarly works in the field.
