The second coming of Jesus Christ has profound implications for how Christians live today. Paul shows in his letters to the Thessalonians 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 how 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.
The apostle Paul wrote 1 Corinthians to a church struggling with their identity as Christians. Designed to help modern readers understand and apply this biblical letter to their own lives--especially when it comes to fighting sin and interacting with a fallen world--this commentary by pastor Stephen Um explains the biblical text with clarity and insight. Part of Crossway's award-winning Preaching the Word commentary series, this volume uses powerful illustrations, engaging anecdotes, and practical applications to help readers truly engage with God's Word in a powerful and authentic way. Furthermore, pastors, teachers, and small group leaders will find valuable assistance in preparing to lead others through the biblical text.
