Pastor’s Bookshelf: 1-2 Thessalonians

posted by Scot McKnight

Paul.jpgThis week’s version of Pastor’s Bookshelf is commentaries on 1 and 2 Thessalonians.

Because it’s my old stand-by, I turn first to F.F. Bruce, 1 & 2 Thessalonians (Word Biblical Commentary) (Vol. 45) but there are two recent commentaries that shake things up:

Charles Wanamaker, The Epistles to the Thessalonians: A Commentary on the Greek Text (New International Greek Testament Commentary)
.

Abraham J. Malherbe, The Letters to the Thessalonians (The Anchor Yale Bible Commentaries)
.

Then I turn to Ben Witherington 1 and 2 Thessalonians: A Socio-Rhetorical Commentary
and to Ernest Best First and Second Epistles to the Thessalonians
.

I think Beverly Gaventa’s commentary in the Interpretation series is excellent as well. It is very readable for pastors.

Scot,
I realize it was just released two days ago…but have you had a chance to page through Fee’s NICNT 1&2 Thess update? I’m planning to pick it up tomorrow during my weekly visit to Eerdmans…one of the many perks of living in GRap, MI :)

Our Common Prayerbook 30 - 3
Psalm 30 thanks God (vv. 1-3, 11-12) and exhorts others to thank God (vv. 4-5). Both emerge from the concrete reality of David's own experience. Here is what that experience looks like:Step one: David was set on high and was flourishing at the hand of God's bounty (v. 7a).Step two: David became too

Theology After Darwin 1 (RJS)
One of the more important and more difficult pieces of the puzzle as we feel our way forward at the interface of science and faith is the theological implications of discoveries in modern science. A comment on my post Evolution in the Key of D: Deity or Deism noted: ...this reminds me of why I get a

Almost Christian 4
Who does well when it comes to passing on the faith to the youth? Studies show two groups do really well: conservative Protestants and Mormons; two groups that don't do well are mainline Protestants and Roman Catholics. Kenda Dean's new book is called Almost Christian: What the Faith of Ou

Let's Get Neanderthal!
The Cave Man Diet, or Paleo Diet, is getting attention. (Nothing is said about Culver's at all.) The big omission, I have to admit, is that those folks were hunters -- using spears or smacking some rabbit upside the conk or grabbing a fish or two with their hands ... but that's what makes this diet
