Product Description

Formerly part of the New International Commentary on the New Testament, this volume The First and Second Epistles to the Thessalonians, by Leon Morris has been re-issued as an independent commentary. Morris argues that these letters--like no other Pauline writings-- reveal Paul's missionary fervor and methods more clearly than the Thessalonian Epistles. As such, Morris provides a detailed historical and exegetical analysis of the text while also illuminating the hope and exhortative tone pervading these letters of Paul. But Morris goes further, and brings the text into our everyday realm with precision and a lucid -easy-to-read -writing style that communicates complexity with simplicity. This commentary is a classic and will serve readers of all stripes, from the scholar, to the laity.

Publisher's Description

The two letters to the Thessalonians dwell richly on the Christian hope and emphasize the significance of the Christian calling in the here and now. In this commentary Leon Morris offers a solid exegetical discussion of specific problems relating to the composition of the letters themselves, yet his exposition is also pervaded by an acute awareness of the relevance of Paul's message to the practical problems encountered in living the Christian life. Long published as part of the New International Commentary on the New Testament series and here reprinted in paperback, this classic work on 1 and 2 Thessalonians has proved — and will continue to prove — useful to a wide range of readers, including scholars, pastors, Bible students, and educated Christians.

    You can't buy much these days for two dollars. Leon Morris was a highly regarded 20th century evangelical commentator known for his careful, conservative scholarship and humble, gracious character. He is best remembered for his work on the Gospel of John for the NICNT series, Matthew & Romans for the PNTC series and several volumes in the TNTC series of which he served as General Editior. While I might not agree with every one of his conclusions, I appreciate the author's dry wit, simplicity and attention to detail in commenting on the biblical text. Morris is a solid, dependable expositor and for two dollars you can't go wrong. Thank you Eerdmans/CBD for offering this resource for such an unbelievably low price.

    The late Leon Morris consistently wrote outstanding commentaries and this is no exception. He had done the Thessalonian epistles previously, but re-wrote this to be as thorough as possible. He is thorough and unbiased.
