Product Details

Paul wrote to the church in Thessalonica to encourage them to live in the light of the gospel. In his two letters he addresses a number of topics, including the persecution they were enduring, the second coming of Christ, and how they were to live in the present times. While the letters were written nearly two thousand years ago, pastor James H. Grant Jr. insists that Paul’s audience includes us as well as the Thessalonians.

Grant applies Paul’s message to contemporary churches by moving expositionally through 1 & 2 Thessalonians. Twenty-five sermons examine each passage of the books as the gospel and its implications are unpacked in light of Christ’s second coming./p>

1 & 2 Thessalonians is a Preaching the Word commentary. The series is noted for its unqualified commitment to biblical authority, clear exposition of Scripture, readability, and practical application. It is an ideal resource for pastors and teachers, as well as for personal Bible study.

Endorsements

This series will minister to a pastor's soul as well as give him an immense resource for his preaching. And it will minister to the parishioner wonderfully in personal Bible study. The reader will be filled with fresh thoughts about our Lord as well as joyful encouragement for himself. That is what happened to me in reading this.
Dr. Ken Taylor (1917-2005), translator, Living Bible
With this series, evangelicalism may now claim its own William Barclay. While remaining true to the text and its original meaning, Dr. Hughes helps us face the personal, ethical, theological, and practical questions which the text wants to answer in the presence of living God and his illuminating Holy Spirit.
Dr. Walter C. Kaiser, Jr, Colman M. Mockler distinguished Professor of Old Testament and President Emeritus of Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary in South Hamilton, Massachusetts
The Preaching the Word Commentary is one of my favorites. The focus upon explaining the text with preaching it as the goal makes the series resonate with the priorities of the pulpit. No academic aloofness here, but down-to-earth, preacher-to-preacher meat for God's people.
Bryan Chapell, President, Covenant Theological Seminary, St. Louis, Missouri
The single best resource for faithful biblical exposition today. A great boon for genuine reformation!
Timothy George, Dean, Samford University, Beeson Divinity School
Throughout the Christian centuries, from Chrysostom and Augustine through Luther, Calvin, and Matthew Henry, to Martyn Lloyd-Jones and Ray Stedman, working pastors have been proving themselves to be the best of all Bible expositors. Kent Hughes stands in this great tradition, and his exciting expositions uphold it worthily.
