Publisher's Description

I and II Thessalonians are letters written to new Christian communities in Thessalonica early in Paul’s ministry. Paul wrote these letters after a brief stay in order to instruct them further as they anticipate Jesus’ second coming. In this new volume in the acclaimed New Testament Library series, M. Eugene Boring offers a scholarly interpretation of I and II Thessalonians while examining their historical context. Boring helps the reader learn to read these letters in context, particularly in relation to Paul’s life as well as to the new converts who lived in Thessalonica. He addresses aspects such as structure, tone, style, language, and—for II Thessalonians—questions of authorship, while offering insightful theological perspectives. Boring’s critical interpretation is a welcome addition to the New Testament Library and provides a solid resource for both the academy and the church.

The New Testament Library offers authoritative commentary on every book and major aspect of the New Testament, providing fresh translations based on the best available ancient manuscripts, critical portrayals of the historical world in which the books were created, careful attention to their literary design, and a theologically perceptive exposition of the biblical text. The editorial board consists of C. Clifton Black, Princeton Theological Seminary; M. Eugene Boring, Brite Divinity School; and John T. Carroll, Union Presbyterian Seminary.

Author Bio

M. Eugene Boring is I. Wylie Briscoe Professor of New Testament Emeritus at Brite Divinity School, Texas Christian University.

Editorial Reviews

"M. Eugene Boring's treatment of 1 and 2 Thessalonians is thoroughly researched, exegetically perceptive, and theologically insightful. Boring helps the contemporary reader listen in on the conversations between Paul and the Thessalonians and between Paul's literary descendent and those same Christians with keen awareness of the political, social, and religious environments in which they lived. This is a master work by a wise and seasoned scholar."
—E. Elizabeth Johnson, J. Davison Philips Professor of New Testament, Columbia Theological Seminary
