Product Description

1 and 2 Thessalonians is another release in the Zondervan Exegetical Commentary on the New Testament series---the only commentary series with a graphical display, theology in application section and identification of the main idea for each section.

These early epistles show how Paul created his characteristic communication strategy: sending letters by a trusted representative, in order to strengthen his disciples and provide answers for new questions. The mostly gentile church of Thessalonica lived among people who mocked the gospel teachings of monotheism, personal purity, and the resurrection of the body. Paul writes that God had indeed selected to be his people and in time he would vindicate them before the world. Shorgen uses exegetical and rhetorical insights and Jewish and Greco-Roman background the bring out the meaning of his letters. He underscores Paul's work as church-planter and pastor, a man who consciously set himself forth as an example to believers. According to Shogren, the apostle still stands as a model for those who wish to proclaim God's word in God's way.

Designed for the pastor and Bible teacher, the Zondervan Exegetical Commentary on the New Testament brings together commentary features rarely gathered in one volume. Written by notable evangelical scholars, each volume treats the literary context and structure of the passage in the original Greek and each author provides an original translation based on the literary structure.

The series consistently provides a main point, exegetical outline, verse-by-verse commentary, and theology in application in each section of every commentary. Critical scholarship informs each step but does not dominate the commentary, allowing readers to concentrate on the biblical author's message as it unfolds. While primarily designed for those with a basic knowledge of biblical Greek, all who strive to understand and teach the New Testament will find these books beneficial.

Author Bio

Gary Shogren (Ph.D., Kings College, Aberdeen) was raised in small-town New England (Rhode Island) in a family that had roots back to the founding of the colony in the 1600s. He grew up in the Baptist church and came to believe in Christ at the age of 6. However, when he was a teenager, a series of experiences led him to a deeper walk with God and a sense that God was calling him into ministry. After a number of years of education (culminating with a PhD in New Testament from Kings College, Aberdeen, Scotland) he served as a pastor and then as a professor. He has been a NT professor for 24 years.

In 1998 he and his family moved to Costa Rica to learn Spanish, so that he could teach at ESEPA Bible College and Seminary in San José, Costa Rica. He has written a number of articles and several books, including articles in the Anchor Bible DictionaryNovum Testamentum, and Dictionary of Jesus and the Gospels; a Greek grammar textbook; Running in Circles, a guide for counseling drug addicts; a Spanish-language commentary on 1 Corinthians and (in process) a commentary on 1-2 Thessalonians (Zondervan).  He is married to Karen and has four grown children.  See Gary's blog at justinofnablus.com

    I found Shogren's commentary on 1 & 2 Thessalonians to be a delight read. Shogren models the difference between being technical and being a mere technician. A mere technician is one who is able to dissect and analyze but is not able to demonstrate how accurate analysis leads to anything significant. On the other hand, one can be technical in a very helpful way. What makes Shogren's contribution to 1 & 2 Thessalonians so necessary is that he delves into the technicalities of the text without leaving the reader there--a rare find in modern day Christian scholarship. This commentary is chalked full of practical, pastoral, and theological insights. Nonetheless, these insights are not plucked out of thin air. Shogren demonstrates how these down to earth truths flow right out of a close analysis of the text. I highly recommend it to anyone wishing to discern the voice of God in the text of 1 & 2 Thessalonians. I believe that pastors especially will find this commentary to be helpful on both the technical and pastoral level. If you read through this commentary prayerfully with an open Bible you will find your head stimulated and your heart challenged and satisfied.

Author/Artist Review

Author: Gary Shogren
Located in: San Jose, Costa Rica
Submitted: February 22, 2014

    Tell us a little about yourself.  My wife Karen and I have been missionary professors to Costa Rica since 1998. I currently serve as New Testament professor and academic dean.

    What was your motivation behind this project?  I have always loved the Thessalonian epistles, and especially for the strong pastoral emphasis in the first letter.

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  That word-for-word Greek exegesis and pastoral love are not opposites but two sides of a coin.

    How were you personally impacted by working on this project?  If the time I have spent in study has taught me anything, it is that I should put my books aside for a while and imitate the apostle: • to make myself more available to speak to groups, no matter their size • to find a handful of brothers and serve as their mentor • to take a more active role in personal evangelism • to participate in work projects that tangibly show Christ’s love • above all, to pray for the advance of the gospel

    Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists?  My friend Gene Green has written such a wonderful commentary on the letters that it was hard writing in his shadow - he is also my predecessor at Seminario ESEPA, where I teach the New Testament in Spanish. He and other scholars who I know from Aberdeen University, such as editor Clint Arnold, I. Howard Marshall, Bob Mounce, Eckhard Schnabel - well, too many to name! - exert a constant pressure on me to serve God with my best efforts but mainly to ask God for his guidance.

    Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know:  I hope that the volume will help them to be better preachers and pastors, disciplers, preachers, prayer warriors and evangelists.
