1 & 2 Thessalonians

#1 The First and Second Epistles to the Thessalonians, New International Commentary on the New Testament, by Leon Morris

The two letters of the Thessalonians dwell richly upon the Christian hope and emphasize the meaning and earnestness of the Christian’s calling in the present world. Leon Morris offers a scholarly exegetical discussion of specific problems relating to the composition of the letters themselves with an acute awareness of the relevance of Paul’s message to the practical problems encountered in living the Christian life. This is a fully .revised edition of Morris’s classic 1959 work on 1 and 2 Thessalonians and not only takes account of recent exegetical works in Thessalonian studies but also incorporates significant new knowledge in the area of early Christian sociology.

#2 1 & 2 Thessalonians, by Richard Mayhue

The Thessalonian epistles give us relevant glimpses of the church’s earliest times. When looking at the early church many contemporary questions arise and those questions are questions that exercises our modern church just as much as the historic Thessalonian one. These timeless letters provide up-to-date answers from a consecrated church, sheparded by godly men devoted to God and to his word.

#3 1 & 2 Thessalonians, Living in the End Times, by John Stott

In Paul’s letters to the Thessalonians, even though Paul is sending corrections and instructions like in other letters, he also loves them, is anxiously concerned for their welfare, begs them to stand firm, teaches them, and prays for them constantly like the pastor he is. They also contain some of the most important New Testament passages about eschatology, the culmination of all things.
