The second coming of Jesus Christ has profound implications for how Christians live today. In his letters to the Thessalonians, Paul shows that the whole of the Christian life—especially our experience of suffering and our work in ministry—is changed when we live in light of the gospel.

In this commentary, Pastor James H. Grant Jr. applies Paul’s message to contemporary churches by moving expositionally through 1—2 Thessalonians, covering both personal and corporate concerns. This volume traces the way Paul shares about events in his life and addresses issues in the church of Thessalonica, unpacking the power of the gospel and what it means for our lives today.
