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.
