In Paul's letters to the Thessalonians, even though Paul is sending corrections and instructions like in other letters, he also loves them, is anxiously concerned for their welfare, begs them to stand firm, teaches them, and prays for them constantly like the pastor he is. They also contain some of the most important New Testament passages about eschatology, the culmination of all things. Ten lessons to study under the guidance of beloved pastor and teacher John Stott contain inductive study questions, application, commentary, prayer helps and leader guidelines. More information about the text can be found in Stott's commentary on Thessalonians (WW1237).
