Item description for First & Second Thessalonians- Bible Commentary (Everymans Bible Commentaries) by Charles C. Ryrie...
Overview The Thessalonian epistles demonstrate Paul not only as a mature Christian, but also a seasoned missionary. This book is for readers desiring a substantive, yet understandable commentary.
Dr. Ryrie's admiration for these letteers and for the beneficial teaching and encouragement they provide is clear: "These epistles are like finely cut gems. They reflect the depths of theological thought, especially in the area of future things," he writes. "From every part shine forth the character and conduct of Paul's missionary heart, and they sparkle with the brilliance of captivating power of the Gospel of Christ." Paul's letters to the Thessalaonians were those of a pastor who was basically satisfied, even thrilled, with the progress of his flock. But he wanted to encourage them to go on in their faith, to be strong in persecution, wary of temptation, and watchful for the Lord's Second Coming. In Charles Ryrie's timeless commentary on 1 and 2 Thessalonians, the great theologian illuminates Paul's clear teaching for his strong but not infallible church in the powerful, sensual city of Thessalonica. He shows how the apostle had to defend himself and his conduct from charges of slander, and how Paul was pleased with his recent converts and their vibrant, durable faith. But despite Paul's favor, he wanted to clear up some misconceptions the young church had about the Second Coming of Christ. In these two letters, he corrects confusion about when Christ would come back, and more important, he bolsters the hearts of this persecuted flock with the glorious hope of Christ's resurrection, his return, and eternal life.
