Product Details

In this addition to the critically acclaimed BECNT series, respected New Testament scholar Jeffrey Weima offers pastors, students, and teachers the most up-to-date and substantive commentary available on 1-2 Thessalonians. Weima, a Thessalonians expert, experienced teacher, and widely traveled speaker, presents well-informed evangelical scholarship at an accessible level to help readers understand the sociological, historical, and theological aspects of these letters. As with all BECNT volumes, this commentary features the author's detailed interaction with the Greek text, extensive research, thoughtful chapter-by-chapter exegesis, and a user-friendly design. It admirably achieves the dual aims of the series—academic sophistication with pastoral sensitivity and accessibility.

About the Series

The Baker Exegetical Commentary on the New Testament (BECNT) series provides commentaries that blend scholarly depth with readability, exegetical detail with sensitivity to the whole, and attention to critical problems with theological awareness.

    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. One of the most appealing features of the commentary is Weima's interpretation within the context of ancient epistolary structure, rather than the all-too-frequently-used rhetorical analysis. 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 also provides a detailed and helpful introduction to the commentary that emphasizes the historical background of these letters. Weima 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, president, dean, and professor of New Testament, 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, The William M. Hinson Professor of Christian Scriptures, 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.
