In discussing these matters, Thiselton also examines the responses from leading scholars, poets, hymn writers, preachers, theologians, and biblical specialists throughout the ages. He also investigates the issues raised by feminist scholars including Paul's allegedly manipulative strategy in laying claim to authoritative fatherhood. With the inclusion of a history of two-way influences, as exemplified by Ulrich Luz, Hans Robert Jauss, Hans-Georg Gadamer, 1&2 Thessalonians is a unique resource whose treatment of these letters offers genuinely new and illuminating insights into the the reception of these two epistles through the centuries.

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.

“The book is valuable for its historical coverage – there are 89 ‘brief biographies’ at the end of the book – and also for Thiselton’s own brief but wise comments.” (Journal for the Study of the New Testament, 1 November 2012)
