Possibly the earliest Christian documents, the Thessalonians letters are addressed to Christians in a society surrounded by polytheism and nestled at the crossroads of an empire. With topics ranging from Christology and the second coming to ethics and holy living, these writings are a balm to the suffering, an encouragement to the struggling, and an admonishment to the idle.
In this volume from the New Beacon Bible Commentary series, Terence Paige deftly handles the content of Thessalonians as well as issues of authorship and composition. He expertly marries both the academic and spiritual tasks of spiritual study to produce an NBBC volume that is a welcome addition to the libraries of lay and clergy alike.
