With an uncanny grasp of the "afterlife" of 1 and 2 Thessalonians, Anthony Thiselton demonstrates why it is crucial that we understand that we arent the first people to encounter these Pauline letters. Not surprisingly, with this foray into the emerging area of reception history, Anthony Thiselton has set a high bar for those who will follow.

It will be a key resource for all who would endeavour to understand how Paul has been read and should be read. Lucid in style, this volume is not only immensely scholarly it is also an accessible and extremely enjoyable read!
