Charles A. Wannamaker applies sociological models and rhetorical analysis to the Thessalonian epistles as well as traditional historical-critical, linguistic, literary and theological approaches. By combining the two exegetical approaches, Wannamaker strives to understand and explain Pauline Christianity at Thessalonica as a socio-religious movement in the first century Greco-Roman world and attempts to grasp the social character and functions of Paul's letters within this context. This is a scholarly work.

Review 1 for The Epsitles to the Thessalonians: New International Greek Testament Commentary [NIGTC]
Wanamaker has written a very good commentary on this epistle. He deals with all the important issues, and gives us an insight into the social-religious movement in the first-century Greco-Roman world. The exegesis is detailed and falls into line with other commentaries in the series. Students and scholars will be blessed by this commentary, especially those who want to know more about the neglected Thessalonian studies. I strongly recommend this commentary to all those who want to get a better understanding on these two Pauline epistles.
