The two letters to the Thessalonians dwell richly on the Christian hope and emphasize the significance of the Christian calling in the here and now. In this commentary Leon Morris offers a solid exegetical discussion of specific problems relating to the composition of the letters themselves, yet his exposition is also pervaded by an acute awareness of the relevance of Pauls message to the practical problems encountered in living the Christian life. Long published as part of the New International Commentary on the New Testament series and here reprinted in paperback, this classic work on 1 and 2 Thessalonians has proved and will continue to prove useful to a wide range of readers, including scholars, pastors, Bible students, and educated Christians. / Thorough and readable. Leon Morris deals minutely with the grammatical meaning of the Greek text without being obscure or pedantic. . . . The main exposition of the commentary is comprehensible by any intelligent Bible student and provides ready reference for the casual reader. Christianity Today / Morris is an able exegete with a mind of his own and a stylistic facility that makes his commentary as readable as it is instructive. Evangelical Quarterly / This commentary is worthy of a place on the shelves of every student of the New Testament. Didaskalia
