Author Bio

F. F. Bruce (1910-1990) was Rylands Professor of Biblical Criticism and Exegesis at the University of Manchester. Trained as a classicist, Bruce authored more than 50 books on the New Testament and served as the editor for the New International Commentary on the New Testament from 1962 until his death in 1990.

Editorial Reviews

'Arriving at Manchester, one of the first things I noticed in my office was Seyoon Kim's justly famous PhD thesis, in a shelf of research by F. F. Bruce's students. Kim has now greatly honored his former supervisor with a wonderful commentary, incorporating Bruce's textual notes but essentially a new work. Kim's commentary faithfully and effectively inherits both Bruce's concern for well contextualized and judicious interpretation and Bruce's skill in producing writing that will be very fruitful in the life of today's churches.' -- Peter Oakes, Rylands Professor of Biblical Criticism and Exegesis, University of Manchester

'Carefully researched, carefully lays out the issues, and offers meaningful insight and explanation. This commentary will provide significant help to both pastors and scholars.' -- Klyne R. Snodgrass, professor emeritus of New Testament, North Park Theological Seminary

'In this updated volume on the Thessalonian letters, Seyoon Kim tackles the challenging feat of revising the work of his mentor, F. F. Bruce. While surely standing on the shoulders of Bruce, Kim deserves commendation for offering a thorough exegesis of these two important, and sometimes overlooked, Pauline letters. At three and a half times the length of Bruce's original work, Kim handles the textual, linguistic, historical, social, and theological factors with precision, thoroughness, and care. His interaction with secondary sources shows keen discernment, gracefully offering constructive criticism where appropriate. Especially helpful is Kim's discussion of justification, a doctrine that is often overlooked or even assumed absent in these letters. This volume will surely be an essential reference for anyone studying the Thessalonian correspondence.' -- Jeanette Hagen Pifer, affiliate professor of New Testament, Talbot School of Theology, Biola University

'Mature Pauline scholar Seyoon Kim would make his mentor, F. F. Bruce, proud in this revision of Bruce's commentary. It displays the independent, incisive engagement with the biblical text and with scholarship that we have come to expect from him.' -- Craig S. Keener, professor of biblical studies, Asbury Theological Seminary

'Prof. Seyoon Kim has not only provided an update to F. F. Bruce's original commentary but has deployed his keen exegetical skills and senses to some of the most difficult passages in the Pauline corpus. Kim's commentary on 1-2 Thessalonians is an erudite exposition that captures Paul's future expectations and exhortations to the believers in Thessalonica. A tremendous achievement in the study of these short, but immensely important letters.' -- Michael F. Bird, academic dean, Ridley College, Melbourne, Australia

'Seyoon Kim has produced a superb commentary, exhibiting detailed historical research, rich theological exegesis, and thorough interaction with the secondary literature. Together with a volume of supplementary essays, this brilliant work represents the crowning achievement of a lifetime of careful study of the Pauline texts. It will become the standard by which all commentaries on the Thessalonian letters will be measured for many years to come.' -- Donald A. Hagner, George Eldon Ladd Emeritus Professor of New Testament, Fuller Theological Seminary

'Seyoon Kim's 1 and 2 Thessalonians is one of the best commentaries on these letters now available. This lengthy and detailed exposition is especially strong in alerting readers to some of the latest academic treatments of various issues in the letters and in its rich exploration of the interface between these letters and Paul's wider theology.' -- Douglas J. Moo, professor of New Testament emeritus, Wheaton College

'Seyoon Kim's commentary is a stunning, magisterial achievement! It will define historical critical studies on Paul's Thessalonian letters and their connection to his overall theology for a new generation of scholars. It is more than a welcome update to F. F. Bruce's prior work but offers fresh exegetical analyses on major themes in the Thessalonian correspondence, including justification through faith, realized vs. future eschatology, the Jesus tradition in Paul's gospel, and Paul's critique of idolatry and their idolatrous systems,to name just a few. Kim brings the reader up to speed with current debates on Paul, particularly whether or not his gospel is counter-imperial, or if there is any theological development between his early and latter letters. He constructs a new historical setting (or a new Sitz im Leben) for 1 Thessalonians centering on the role of Paul's 'entry' into the city and offers a new interpretation for the 'restraining thing' and the 'restraining person' for 2 Thessalonians. Rich in insight, theologically provocative, and adeptly argued, Kim's commentary is a masterpiece. Bravo!' -- Max J. Lee, The Paul W. Brandel Professor of Biblical Studies, North Park Theological Seminary

'Thoughtful, detailed, richly engaged with contemporary discussion and debate, Seyoon Kim has produced a welcome contribution to the understanding of the Thessalonian correspondence, from which many will benefit.' -- Mark A. Seifrid, senior professor of New Testament, Concordia Seminary, St. Louis
