Product Description

Paul wrote to the church in Thessalonica to encourage them to live in the light of the gospel. In his two letters he addresses a number of topics, including the persecution they were enduring, the second coming of Christ, and how they were to live in the present times. While the letters were written nearly two thousand years ago, pastor James H. Grant Jr. insists that Paul's audience includes us as well as the Thessalonians.

Grant applies Paul's message to contemporary churches by moving expositionally through 1 & 2 Thessalonians. Twenty-five sermons examine each passage of the books as the gospel and its implications are unpacked in light of Christ's second coming.

1 & 2 Thessalonians is part of the Preaching the Word Commentary Series. The series is noted for its unqualified commitment to biblical authority, clear exposition of Scripture, readability, and practical application. It is an ideal resource for pastors and teachers, as well as for personal Bible study.

Author Bio

JAMES H. GRANT JR. (MDiv, Reformed Theological Seminary) is pastor of Trinity Reformed Church in Rossville, Tennessee. He also teaches theology at Westminster Academy and lives in Tennessee with his wife, Brandy, and their four children: Macy, Trey, Nate, and Addie.


It is a pleasure to commend this series of homiletical commentaries. They fill an enormous vacuum that exists between the practical needs of the pastor/teacher and the critical exegetical depth of most commentaries. With this series, evangelicalism may now claim its own William Barclay. While remaining true to the text and its original meaning, Dr. Hughes helps us face the personal, ethical, theological, and practical questions that the text wants us to answer in the presence of the living God and his illuminating Holy Spirit.
-Walter C. Kaiser, Jr.,
President Emeritus and Distinguished Professor of Old Testament and Ethics, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary

The single best resource for faithful biblical exposition available today. A great boon for genuine reformation!
-Timothy George,
Dean, Beeson Divinity School; Executive Editor, Christianity Today

Throughout the Christian centuries, from Chrysostom and Augustine through Luther, Calvin, and Matthew Henry, to Martyn Lloyd-Jones and Ray Stedman, working pastors have been proving themselves to be the best of all Bible expositors. Kent Hughes stands in this great tradition, and his exciting expositions uphold it worthily.
-J. I. Packer,
Board of Governors' Professor of Theology, Regent College; author, Knowing God

For this outstanding series of expository commentaries, Kent Hughes has assembled a team of unusually gifted scholar-preachers. The series will be widely used and much sought after.
-Eric J. Alexander,
Retired Senior Minister, St. George's-Tron Parish Church, Glasgow, Scotland

There is a long history of informed, edifying biblical expositions that have been mightily used of God to shape and strengthen the church. These volumes admirably fit this tradition.
-D. A. Carson,
Research Professor of New Testament, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School

The Preaching the Word commentary series is one of my favorites. The focus upon explaining a text while preaching it as the goal makes the series resonate with the priorities of the pulpit. No academic aloofness here, but down-to-earth, preacher-to-preacher meat for God’s people.
-Bryan Chapell,
President, Covenant Theological Seminary

I’m delighted to endorse the philosophy behind this series. Here sounds out the voice not of the scholar in the study but of the scholar in the pulpit. The authors are all able teachers who regularly expound God’s living Word to his people. May this rich material give us ‘patterns of preaching’ that will not only feed the flock, but, by God’s grace, change the church.
-R. C. Lucas,
Retired Rector, St. Helen's Church, Bishopsgate, London, England
