Product Description

A solid, basic exegetical commentary rooted in traditional evangelical Protestantism.

Historically, the Thessalonian epistles give us critical glimpses into the life of the early church.Because they do so, they present to us perennially relevant questions that were as pressing to the Thessalonians as they are for us today.

In 1 & 2 Thessalonians: Triumphs and Trials of a Consecrated Church Richard Mayhue leverage the epistles to the Thessalonians in order to instruct us today. Lucid and clear explanations draw together history and sound biblical interpretation for the purpose of Christian character formation through the study of Scripture.

Publisher's Description

The Thessalonian epistles give us relevant glimpses of the churches earliest times. When looking at the early church many contemporary questions arise such as 'What is true Gospel?' 'How do you plant a church?' These are questions that exercise our modern church just as much as the historic Thessalonian one.


Paul's first letter was written to encourage and reassure the Christians in Thessolonica. He gives thanks for their faith and love; reminds them of his example on godly living and answers questions about the return of Christ.
In his second letter we find Paul still dealing with confusion over the return of Christ, especially with those that believed that the Lord's coming had already arrived. He also shows that evil and wickedness will reach a crescendo under the leadership of a mysterious figure called 'the wicked one'. He tells them to remain steady in all that they have learnt.


These timeless letters provide up-to-date answers from a consecrated church, shepherded by godly men devoted to God and to his word.


Mayhue's skill in interpreting the text accurately but with humour and modern parallels comes through in this fascinating commentary.
