NBBC, 1 & 2 Thessalonians: A Commentary in the Wesleyan Tradition

Product Description

Possibly the earliest Christian documents, the Thessalonians letters are addressed to Christians in a society surrounded by polytheism and nestled at the crossroads of an empire. With topics ranging from Christology and the second coming to ethics and holy living, these writings are a balm to the suffering, an encouragement to the struggling, and an admonishment to the idle.

In this volume from the New Beacon Bible Commentary series, Terence Paige deftly handles the content of Thessalonians as well as issues of authorship and composition. He expertly marries both the academic and spiritual tasks of spiritual study to produce an NBBC volume that is a welcome addition to the libraries of lay and clergy alike.

About the Series

Engaging, perceptive, and academically thorough, the New Beacon Bible Commentary will expand your understanding and deepen your appreciation of the meaning and message of each book of the Bible.

Written from the Wesleyan theological perspective, this indispensable commentary provides pastors, professional scholars, teachers, and Bible students with a critical, relevant, and inspiring interpretation of the Word of God in the 21st century.

Each volume features:

  • Convenient Introductory Material for each book of the Bible including information on authorship, date, history, audience, sociological/cultural issues, purpose, literary features, theological themes, hermeneutical issues, and more
  • Clear Verse-by-verse Explanations, which offer a contemporary, Wesleyan-based understanding derived from the passage's original language
  • Comprehensive Annotation divided into three sections, which cover background elements behind the text; verse-by-verse details and meanings found in the text; and significance, relevance, intertextuality, and application from the text
