It s a challenge to live in a world filled with so many problems and temptations. But know that you are not alone. The believers in first-century Thessalonica faced many of the same issues we do. They were persecuted, discouraged, and tempted to compromise with the culture around them. The apostle Paul wrote to the Thessalonians to encourage their hearts and plead with them to remain faithful to what they had been taught. Now, Ray Stedman walks you through 1 and 2 Thessalonians to encourage you to hold firm to Christ s teachings until He comes again. This book was previously published as Waiting for the Second Coming."
