Add To Cart
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.

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 Pauls letters for today. Readers will be instructed and encouraged to follow Christ anew, trusting in the God who sovereignly directs history. Highly recommended. -- Brandon D. Crowe, Assistant Professor of New Testament, Westminster Theological Seminary; Book Review Editor, Westminster Theological Journal
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. -- R. Kent Hughes, Senior Pastor Emeritus, College Church, Wheaton, Illinois; Visiting Professor of Pastoral Theology, Westminster Theological Seminary
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 Gods 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. -- Guy Prentiss Waters, James M. Baird Jr. Professor of New Testament, Reformed Theological Seminary, Jackson, Mississippi
