The apostle Paul's correspondence with the church at Thessalonica provides a valuable glimpse into issues confronting the community. Was Paul merely exploiting them for money? When will Christ return? What about those members who had already died? Would they receive Christ's blessings when he came again? As Leon Morris deploys his characteristic knowledge and wisdom in interpreting these two letters, he not only illuminates their original meaning and context but also shows how they bear on the church today.
