Product Description

1&2 Thessalonians: Through the Centuries documents the reception-history on two of Paul's earliest epistles. As a reception-history, this commentary investigates the changing religious beliefs and practices that have resulted from these two epistles, as well as their impact on social and political developments across the centuries. It also demonstrates how these events and changing customs in turn influenced the interpretation of the letters. The analysis of Anthony Thiselton, one of today's leading hermeneuticians and Pauline scholars, provides a broad range of original perspectives, offering the reader a depth and appreciation of these two important letters, how they have been understood, and how they have been applied, through the centuries.

In discussing these matters, Thiselton also examines the responses from leading scholars, poets, hymn writers, preachers, theologians, and biblical specialists throughout the ages. He also investigates the issues raised by feminist scholars including Paul's allegedly manipulative strategy in laying claim to authoritative fatherhood. With the inclusion of a history of two-way influences, as exemplified by Ulrich Luz, Hans Robert Jauss, Hans-Georg Gadamer, 1&2 Thessalonians is a unique resource whose treatment of these letters offers genuinely new and illuminating insights into the the reception of these two epistles through the centuries.

Anthony C. Thiselton is Professor of Christian Theology, University of Nottingham, and Emeritus Professor of Christian Theology at the University of Chester. He is the author of The First Epistle to the Corinthians: A Commentary on the Greek Text (2000), and numerous other works including Interpreting God and the Postmodern Self (1995), A Concise Encyclopedia of the Philosophy of Religion (2002), and The Hermeneutics of Doctrine (2007).

Endorsements

I can think of no person better qualified to write a reception-history commentary than Anthony Thiselton, because he knows what reception history means and how it plays out in interpretation. This commentary is a treasure trove of exegetical and theological insights gleaned from the vast and interesting array of those who not only have interpreted these important letters to the Thessalonians but have responded in prose and poetry to their major themes and ideas.
-Stanley E. Porter
President and Dean, and Professor of New Testament, McMaster Divinity College, Hamilton, Ontario, Canada

With an uncanny grasp of the "afterlife" of 1 and 2 Thessalonians, Anthony Thiselton demonstrates why it is crucial that we understand that we aren’t the first people to encounter these Pauline letters. Not surprisingly, with this foray into the emerging area of reception history, Anthony Thiselton has set a high bar for those who will follow.
-Joel B. Green,
Professor of New Testament Interpretation, Fuller Theological Seminary

It will be a key resource for all who would endeavour to understand how Paul has been read and should be read. Lucid in style, this volume is not only immensely scholarly it is also an accessible and extremely enjoyable read!
-Professor Alan J Torrance,
Chair of Systematic Theology, University of St Andrews

Editorial Reviews

"The book is valuable for its historical coverage – there are 89 ’brief biographies’ at the end of the book – and also for Thiselton’s own brief but wise comments."  (Journal for the Study of the New Testament, 1 November 2012)
