Product Description

Contributing his 3rd volume to the acclaimed NICNT internationally influential scholar Gordon D. Fee presents The First and Second Letters to the Thessalonians [NICNT].

Readers familiar with the NICNT and of Fee, will need no introductions. This commentary, much in Fee's typical style, is a fresh approach and lucid, scholarly, and very readable exposition of these earliest of Pauline letters. Fee's historical mastery of the 1st century and of text criticism shine through as does his brilliance in handling secondary literature. Released in 2009, this commentary replaces Leon Morris' work on the Thessalonian Epistles, which is now available as an independent commentary from Eerdmans.

Publisher's Description

In this commentary Gordon Fee aims first and foremost to offer a fresh exposition of the text of 1 and 2 Thessalonians. He shows the reader what is in the biblical text, what the text meant in the first century, and what it means now. Fee reveals the logic of each argument or narrative before moving on to the details of each verse, and he concludes each section with a theological-practical reflection on the meaning of the text today. Among other things, Fee explores the occasion for writing for each epistle, restoring 2 Thessalonians to the place it deserves as a full companion to the first letter, rather than merely a tagalong to 1 Thessalonians.

Author Bio

Gordon D. Fee is professor emeritus of New Testament studies at Regent College, Vancouver, and general editor of the New International Commentary on the New Testament series.

    If you are looking through and evangelical commentary on the Epistles of 1st and 2nd Thessalonians, the New International Commentary on New Testaments (NICNT) volume on 1st and 2nd Thessalonians by Gordon D. Fee, is your best pick. 1st and 2nd Thessalonians, is published by Eerdmans, is part of NICNT a series which is synonymous with excellent exegesis and superior application, this volume continues the long legacy. This volume is one of the most articulate and practical modern commentaries on these epistles of Paul. Fee is no stranger to Biblical commentaries, nor is he a stranger to this series, having served as its general editor from 1990-2011.

    1st and 2nd Thessalonians, begins with the typical study into the introductory matters of this book of the Bible, yet while introductions are common, is atypical for Fee is so through with his research and interaction with recent scholarship. In a day where these matters are either glossed over to get to the exegesis of the text or are so cumbersome that they become useless, Fee found a good balance in being thorough, communicating depth and attention to recent scholarship, without losing the message of the text.

    With reference to the commentary sections on these epistles, Fee, expertly navigates the text showing the original context of passage while applying it directly to the modern day reader. He also uses a pastoral tone in many of his comments yet never sacrifices his scholastic approach. The outlines that he provides are also of great use for a pastor looking to preach though the epistles of 1st and 2nd Thessalonians exegetically.

    In recommending , 1st and 2nd Thessalonians, to others I would whole heartily recommend this commentary to students of scripture, with one caveat. By this I mean I recommend this work to Pastors, Bible Teachers, Bible College Students, and to a limited extent educated Laymen looking to teach a Sunday school class, there is enough scholarly weight to this work to understand a particular issue in the text while giving aid to pastors in preaching the text. There are many commentaries about 1st and 2nd Thessalonians available at this moment but, 1st and 2nd Thessalonians, of the NICNT series is a giant leap above the rest.

    This book was provided to me free of charge from Eerdmans in exchange for an unbiased, honest review.

    Gordon Fee makes a passage come alive. As you read his commentary you know that he has a clear grasp on what he is talking about. With each passage he goes over how it relates to the book as a whole the passages on both sides of it. He covers the grammer and translation questions and makes most of it understandable and intersting. He interacts with other commentators tells you what they think and then skillfully tells you what he thinks. This commentary along with I. H. Marshall are the ones I turn to the most.
