This volume in the Word Biblical Commentary reflects not only the skills of a seasoned commentator but the attention to detail---especially in setting the Thessalonian epistles against their contemporary background--- that Dr. Bruce's many readers have come to expect. This full-scale commentary in the useful WBC format---separate sections for textual notes, form/structure/setting, comments, and bibliography---is especially valuable for preachers. The Word Biblical Commentary delivers the best in biblical scholarship, from the leading scholars of our day who share a commitment to Scripture as divine revelation. This series emphasizes a thorough analysis of textual, linguistic, structural, and theological evidence. The result is judicious and balanced insight into the meanings of the text in the framework of biblical theology.
