"The Tyndale volumes have long been the premier shorter-length commentary series on both Testaments throughout the English-speaking world." (Craig Blomberg, Denver Seminary)
"Tyndale commentaries are always useful, not least because they focus so clearly on the text of Scripture, and do not fall into the trap of paying too much attention to other commentaries and not enough to the scriptural text they are intended to expound and explain. So they retain their usefulness for preachers, Bible study leaders and for all readers of the Bible." (Peter Adam, principal, Ridley College, Melbourne, Australia)
"Within its constraints, this series includes some outstanding volumes." (D. A. Carson, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School)
"There simply is no series of medium-length commentaries that approaches the excellence of the Tyndale commentaries." (Donald A. Hagner, Fuller Theological Seminary)
"The evenness and quality of this series are remarkable." (Christianity Today)

The two epistles are well-set in their historical context, both in terms of the issues addressed and the order of their appearance among other New Testament works.
Linguistic analysis of the Greek text is competent and helpful without being overbearing. (I always study with two Greek texts open, but it is still nice to have somebody point out points of special significance.)
I strongly recommend this book for the purpose that I have described or simply for someone who wants to study the epistles to the Thessalonians with greater insight than that provided by many other commentaries but without having to wade through the "airs above the ground" executed by too many critical scholars.
