Most Helpful Customer Reviews

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By S. McDonald on August 3, 2007
Format: Paperback
Accepting the widespread view that 1 Thessalonians is the earliest surviving Pauline letter, the author commends reading it as fully as possible on its own terms, without presupposing or imposing themes or positions that are explicit only in letters of a later date. While he agrees with commentators who note this letter's pastoral aims and character, he is more convinced than some that it also exhibits a rich and coherent theological point of view. He interprets 2 Thessalonians as the work of an anonymous Paulinist writing several decades after the apostle's death. He regards this letter, too, as historically and theologically valuable, although less for what it discloses about Paul's ministry and thought than for what it shows about the reception and interpretation of Paul in the late first-century church.
