1&2 Thessalonians [NIVAC] by Michael W. Holmes presents what are perhaps Paul's most unique letters with stunning historical clarity. Holmes, also a scholar of the earliest non-canonical writings of the early church provides a rich contextual framework for the Thessalonian letters which then provides the grounds upon which he derives a rich application of the letters for us today. The emphasis on eschatology and daily living in these letters make them the ideal subject matter for the scope of the NIVAC series, and Holmes' well-rounded and insightful work is an exceptional example of biblical exposition.
About the Series
This unique series shows readers how to bring an ancient message into modern context. It explains not only what the Bible meant but also how it can speak powerfully today. Therefore, the NIV Application Commentary Series helps with both halves of the interpretative task: exegesis and theological application.
Additionally, the unique reader friendly format and the direct pinning of the entire series to the NIV, make it exceptionally easy for non-specialist readers to follow and learn from.
Commentary authors will, at times, work with the original languages but complete explanations are always given in non-specialist language; and they serve the exclusive function of further explicating the text at hand. The same approach is taken with all complex issues and interpretive matters. The focus is on learning and applying and every tool used by the commentators serves this end.
