This unique commentary on Paul's early letters by an outstanding New Testament specialist, provides a broad range of original perspectives of how people have interpreted, and been influenced by, Paul's first two letters. * Addresses questions concerning the content, setting, and authenticity of the two Thessalonian letters, drawing on responses from leading scholars, poets, hymn writers, preachers, theologians, and biblical scholars throughout the ages * Offers new insights into issues they raise concerning feminist biblical interpretation. * Provides a history of two-way influences, as exemplified by Ulrich Luz, Hans Robert Jauss, and Hans-Georg Gadamer * Written by Anthony Thiselton, a leading commentator on the Greek New Testament
"The book is valuable for its historical coverage -- there are 89 'brief biographies' at the end of the book -- and also for Thiselton's own brief but wise comments." ( Journal for the Study of the New Testament , 1 November 2012)
