Series: Preaching the Word
Paul wrote to the church in Thessalonica to encourage them to live in the light of the gospel. In his two letters he addresses a number of topics, including the persecution they were enduring, the second coming of Christ, and how they were to live in the present times. While the letters were written nearly two thousand years ago, pastor James H. Grant Jr. insists that Pauls audience includes us as well as the Thessalonians.
Grant applies Pauls message to contemporary churches by moving expositionally through 1 & 2 Thessalonians. Twenty-five sermons examine each passage of the books as the gospel and its implications are unpacked in light of Christs second coming.
1 & 2 Thessalonians is a Preaching the Word commentary. The series is noted for its unqualified commitment to biblical authority, clear exposition of Scripture, readability, and practical application. It is an ideal resource for pastors and teachers, as well as for personal Bible study.

The single best resource for faithful biblical exposition available today. A great boon for genuine reformation!
Dean, Beeson Divinity School; Executive Editor, Christianity Today
Throughout the Christian centuries, from Chrysostom and Augustine through Luther, Calvin, and Matthew Henry, to Martyn Lloyd-Jones and Ray Stedman, working pastors have been proving themselves to be the best of all Bible expositors. Kent Hughes stands in this great tradition, and his exciting expositions uphold it worthily.
-J. I. Packer,
Board of Governors' Professor of Theology, Regent College; author, Knowing God
For this outstanding series of expository commentaries, Kent Hughes has assembled a team of unusually gifted scholar-preachers. The series will be widely used and much sought after.

There is a long history of informed, edifying biblical expositions that have been mightily used of God to shape and strengthen the church. These volumes admirably fit this tradition.
-D. A. Carson,
Research Professor of New Testament, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School
The Preaching the Word commentary series is one of my favorites. The focus upon explaining a text while preaching it as the goal makes the series resonate with the priorities of the pulpit. No academic aloofness here, but down-to-earth, preacher-to-preacher meat for Gods people.
President, Covenant Theological Seminary
Im delighted to endorse the philosophy behind this series. Here sounds out the voice not of the scholar in the study but of the scholar in the pulpit. The authors are all able teachers who regularly expound Gods living Word to his people. May this rich material give us patterns of preaching that will not only feed the flock, but, by Gods grace, change the church.

Retired Rector, St. Helen's Church, Bishopsgate, London, England
