Series: The New International Commentary on the New Testament (NICNT)

In this commentary Gordon Fee aims first and foremost to offer a fresh exposition of the text of 1 and 2 Thessalonians. He shows the reader what is in the biblical text, what the text meant in the first century, and what it means now. Fee reveals the logic of each argument or narrative before moving on to the details of each verse, and he concludes each section with a theological-practical reflection on the meaning of the text today. Among other things, Fee explores the occasion for writing for each epistle, restoring 2 Thessalonians to the place it deserves as a full companion to the first letter, rather than merely a tagalong to 1 Thessalonians.

"Gordon's commentary has certainly done justice to the proclaimed intention of the NICNT series. And thus he has done a great service both to students and scholars through this excellent work. . . . A must for every biblical library."
