Inside Flap

"Weima has written a full and authoritative commentary on 1 and 2 Thessalonians that readers will want to consult regularly and frequently. He brings a wealth of previous research to bear upon his exegesis. The result is well-considered and thoughtful positions at almost every juncture. Weima sets the stage for his exegesis and exposition of each section by laying out the literary character and shape of the unit to be discussed. He shows awareness of the current debate on a wide range of issues in Thessalonians research, while also ably defending traditional positions regarding authorship, interpretation, and even text-critical matters. I am sure that this commentary will be widely used."
--Stanley E. Porter, McMaster Divinity College

"Is it possible for a commentary to be both technical and accessible, comprehensive and concise, academic and pastoral? Weima has produced precisely such a commentary on the Thessalonian Letters. One would be hard-pressed to find a full-length, up-to-date treatment of these letters that offers more than Weima's. Judicious in judgment, gracious in engagement, and clear in argument, this commentary catapults Weima to the front of an increasingly crowded field. It will become a standard, go-to resource for scholars, ministers, and students alike."
--Todd D. Still, Truett Seminary, Baylor University

"Already an acknowledged expert on the Thessalonian Letters, Weima offers fellow Christians a clear and erudite interpretation. This exegetical commentary now stands among the authoritative works on 1 and 2 Thessalonians."
--L. Ann Jervis, Wycliffe College, University of Toronto
