Product Description

An excellent addition to the Reformed Expository Commentary series

Years before writing Romans or Ephesians, Paul sent a pair of letters to a new church in Thessalonica. Three concerns governed Paul's teaching in these letters: What makes a healthy church? How should we view God's Word? What does a Christian life look like?

Richard D. Phillips's commentary considers these foundational issues in a scholarly, pastoral, and practical manner and also explores Paul's end-times teaching - the clearest found in the New Testament. Through these studies, readers will find a refreshingly clear biblical summary of what will happen before, during, and after the Second Coming. Just as importantly, by touring Paul's singular teaching in 1 and 2 Thessalonians, readers will recover a joyful anticipation of Christ's return and receive hope for life in a challenging world.

Author Bio

Richard D. Phillips (M.Div., Westminster Theological Seminary; D.D., Greenville Presbyterian Theological Seminary) is the senior minister of Second Presbyterian Church of Greenville, South Carolina. He is a council member of the Alliance of Confessing Evangelicals and of the Gospel Coalition, chairman of the Philadelphia Conference on Reformed Theology, and coeditor of the Reformed Expository Commentary series.

Editorial Reviews

“As Christians, Bible teachers, or gospel ministers, we take our first step in the study of the Bible by going directly to our copy of God’s Word. Then, seeking to plumb the depths of the text and avoid handling it wrongly, we secure accurate and thoughtful commentaries from trusted commentators. That is precisely what we have in Rick Phillips’s insightful, faithful, and instructive commentary on 1 and 2 Thessalonians, which navigates Paul’s Holy Spirit–inspired treatment of wide-ranging, yet ever-relevant gospel issues for life and eternity.”
“The books of 1 and 2 Thessalonians have a crucial message for the world today, but they can be hard to understand. What does the Bible teach about the return of Christ? What should we think about the ‘rapture’? Who is the man of lawlessness? With theological precision and the care of a seasoned pastor, Richard Phillips reveals the sure biblical path through the underbrush of end-times confusion, and explains the relevance of Paul’s letters for today. Readers will be instructed and encouraged to follow Christ anew, trusting in the God who sovereignly directs history. Highly recommended.”
“The author of this worthy volume is conversant with the extensive literature on 1 and 2 Thessalonians and has given us a commentary informed by his long commitment to Christ-centered reformational theology. But this is not a trudging tome; it was preached viva voce by a busy, caring pastor-scholar to his own flock week by week and is lively, engaging, and wholly relevant. 1 & 2 Thessalonians is sure to be a grace to the church and her shepherds.”
“Paul wrote 1 and 2 Thessalonians to a young church endeavoring to live for Christ in the midst of a hostile culture. These two little letters have a lot to say to the contemporary church. We may be grateful, then, that Richard D. Phillips has provided us with this fine expositional commentary, a sure and insightful guide to understanding and applying these epistles. Whether you want to be a better reader of God’s Word or are called to preach or teach the Bible in the church, pick up this book and let it help you to prize afresh the riches of these two epistles.”

    I dont know about you, but Ive often heard preachers comment that the Thessalonians are a model church but strangely I seldom hear preachers preach on Thessalonians. This is why Im glad I was given the opportunity to review this book.

    Richard D. Phillips pens another great commentary in the Reformed Expository Commentary Series. As with every commentary in this series, it seeks to present expository sermons on the passages to the readers. Each of the sermons reads excellently and will help budding preacher see how preaching can be exegetical and applicational.

    Do note that Phillips prefers to preach on smaller sets of verses. For example, Phillips preaches 5 sermons on the first chapter of 1 Thessalonians, which consists of 10 verses. There are also situations when Phillips preaches a larger set of sermon (e.g. 1 Thess 4:13-18), and then proceed to break the verses down into 3 sermons (4:13-14; 4:14-17; 4:16-18). Although I prefer exposition that takes a bigger chunk of verses, this commentary is still helpful as it allows me to slow down and examine the verses in smaller segments.

    I especially like the chapter on the rapture, where Phillips goes against the popular teachings of the secret rapture. He shows the error in such teaching and then aims to give a correct and biblical understanding of the rapture. As with every commentary in this series. Each chapter seeks to be exegetical, expositional and applicational. Preachers who needs help or guidance in these areas ought to consult these and perhaps use these as their devotional/evening reading everyday as they prepare their preaching series.

    Rating: 4.5 / 5
