The two letters to the Thessalonians dwell richly upon the Christian hope and emphasise the meaning and earnestness of the Christian's calling in the present world. While Leon Morris offers this commentary as a scholarly exegetical discussion of specific problems relating to composition of the letters themselves, his exposition is also pervaded by an acute awareness of the relevance of Paul's message to the practical problems encountered in living the Christian life.
This revised edition of Morris' classic work on the letters not only takes into account more recent exegetical works in Thessalonian studies but also incorporates significant new knowledge in the area of early Christian sociology. This revised edition is based on the NIV rather than the American Standard Version, the result is a commentary that has proved---and will continue to prove useful to a wide range of readers, including scholars, pastors, Bible students and thoughtful Christians.
Over thirty years ago, Morris's then-new commentary on the Thessalonian epistles was as up-to-date as you could ask for. Since then, though, there's been plenty of discussion about the two letters. In this revised edition, Morris has weighed every word of his original commentary and added many insights drawn from other significant material---including studies in early Christian sociology.

Morris's revised study on the Epistles to the Thessalonians is part of The New International Commentary on the New Testament. Prepared by some of the world's leading scholars, the series provides an exposition of the New Testament books that is thorough and fully abreast of modern sholarship yet faithful to the Scriptures as the infallible Word of God.
