The second letter to the Thessalonians, ascribed to Paul, is one of the most difficult New Testament documents for modern readers. This lucid text approaches the letter from a historical point of view, reading the letter as part of a process of communication between its sender and the original addressees.
"2 Thessalonians" includes a translation of the short Greek text of the letter, a historical examination of the letter's genre, authorship and religious milieu, as well as an introduction to apocalyptic eschatology and an extensive commentary on the letter. The book discusses the insights of recent Biblical scholarship while also showing how these are achieved.
"Informed by modern scholarship on 2 Thessalonians, this interpretation nevertheless provides its independent assessment of matters...successfully communicates on the level of the general readership for which it is intended."
