Formerly part of the New International Commentary on the New Testament, this volume The First and Second Epistles to the Thessalonians, by Leon Morris has been re-issued as an independent commentary. Morris argues that these letters--like no other Pauline writings-- reveal Paul's missionary fervor and methods more clearly than the Thessalonian Epistles. As such, Morris provides a detailed historical and exegetical analysis of the text while also illuminating the hope and exhortative tone pervading these letters of Paul. But Morris goes further, and brings the text into our everyday realm with precision and a lucid -easy-to-read -writing style that communicates complexity with simplicity. This commentary is a classic and will serve readers of all stripes, from the scholar, to the laity.

Customer Reviews for The First and Second Epistles to the Thessalonians
Review 1 for The First and Second Epistles to the Thessalonians
You can't buy much these days for two dollars. Leon Morris was a highly regarded 20th century evangelical commentator known for his careful, conservative scholarship and humble, gracious character. He is best remembered for his work on the Gospel of John for the NICNT series, Matthew & Romans for the PNTC series and several volumes in the TNTC series of which he served as General Editior. While I might not agree with every one of his conclusions, I appreciate the author's dry wit, simplicity and attention to detail in commenting on the biblical text. Morris is a solid, dependable expositor and for two dollars you can't go wrong. Thank you Eerdmans/CBD for offering this resource for such an unbelievably low price.

Review 2 for The First and Second Epistles to the Thessalonians
An excellent commentary
Date:August 21, 2013
The late Leon Morris consistently wrote outstanding commentaries and this is no exception. He had done the Thessalonian epistles previously, but re-wrote this to be as thorough as possible. He is thorough and unbiased.
