In The First and Second Epistles to the Thessalonians, noted theologian Leon Morris introduces the reader to the Church at Thessalonica, then provides stirring verse-by-verse commentary for Paul’s epistles directed there. This indispensable work is at the forefront of Thessalonian studies, and it is a great addition to the library of any theologian, biblical scholar, student of the Bible, or layperson.

The solid exegesis contained in this volume was the original New International Commentary on the New Testament work on 1 & 2 Thessalonians. And, in the Logos edition, Morris’s words are more accessible than ever. His commentary can be linked to any Bibles in your collection and hundreds of search results will appear with the click of a mouse.
