"M. Eugene Boring's treatment of 1 and 2 Thessalonians is thoroughly researched, exegetically perceptive, and theologically insightful. Boring helps the contemporary reader listen in on the conversations between Paul and the Thessalonians and between Paul's literary descendent and those same Christians with keen awareness of the political, social, and religious environments in which they lived. This is a master work by a wise and seasoned scholar."
