Reviews - What do customers think about Thessalonians I & II (People's Bible Commentary)?

Quick read for the laity  Jan 2, 2009
David Kuske is a former parish pastor, high school teacher and principal. He is now a professor of New Testament at Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary in Mequon, Wisconsin (WELS).

This volume analyzing Paul's letters to the Thessalonians is part of the People's Bible Commentary Series, a series geared toward lay people to help them understand the meaning and application of Biblical books. It's written at a basic level, but is neither simplistic nor does the author "talk down" to the reader.

Throughout the book, Kuske continually emphasizes justification and sanctification. He unpacks Paul's words to the Thessalonians to show how they were applicable to them in their day and also how they are applicable to us in ours. The Thessalonians are held up as a model group of Christians--although they have their faults (a distaste for work, confusion about the last days), they are remarkably generous, loving, and missional.

One characteristic of this commentary that bears mentioning is Kuske's identification of the "Man of Lawlessness" in 2 Thessalonians 2 with the Papacy. He apparently understands that this view is not a popular one and so spends much time proving his point. This reader will suspend judgment on Kuske's conclusions, but still recognizes that Kuske's argument has internal consistency.

This book is short (121 pages), to the point, filled with hope, and a nice read. It serves as a good introduction to 1 and 2 Thessalonians.
