The church in Thessalonica was still young, yet vibrant in faith when Paul, Silas and Timothy were forced to leave the infant congregation. Upon his return to check on the Thessalonian church, Timothy was encouraged to report the good news of their faith, love and hope. The resulting epistles, 1 and 2 Thessalonians, were sent by Paul and Silas, first to exhort and encourage the church to live sanctified lives in the present light of their splended past and glorious future, and later to remind and reorient the believers to remain faithful in the face of false teaching.
In this volume from his Living Insights New Testament Commentary series, Gold Medallion Award-winner Chuck Swindoll explores Paul's encouragement, exhortation, and correction to the church he had planted but was forced to leave so soon. Drawing upon his 50 years of experience studying and preaching God's Word, Swindoll demonstrates with deep insight, clarity, and warmth how Paul's encouragement to remain faithful, full of hope and love in spite of trials, and his correction of distorted teachings about the end times, retains its crucial importance for today.
Written in a practical and accesible style, each volume of Swindoll's Living Insights New Testament Commentary series combines verse-by-verse commentary, charts, maps, photos, key terms, and background articles with practical application. The newly updated volumes now include parallel presentations of the NLT and NASB before each section. This series is a must-have for pastors, teachers, and anyone else who is seeking a deeply practical resource for exploring God's Word.

The author explained the meaning of various key Greek words to help the reader understand confusing passages and to bring out the full meaning of the text. He also provided information on the cultural and historical background and quoted similar statements made elsewhere in the Bible to help the reader fully understand the verses.
The author gave a paragraph or two of Scripture and then studied through that verse-by-verse. At the end of each section, he discussed how we can apply the writer's message to our own lives. He also included occasional "journal" pages were he talked about how those verses had been applied or worked out in his life.
Some sections focused on clarifying what the verses meant so the reader could better understand them. Others were more of a sermon where he told the reader what to understand from it. He spent a lot of time on the verses referring to rapture and the end times. He'd point out what the verses actually say (which I agreed with), then he explained how he fit those verses into his beliefs about the pre-Trib rapture and the Tribulation. As I don't agree with much of his overall Rapture and Tribulation beliefs, I found this commentary less helpful than many of his others.
