Thessalonian Correspondance

I think I might preach through the Thessalonian Correspondence after I am done going through Philippians.  (Don’t worry I preach through the OT too.  We have two services (am and pm) and so I often preach a through a psalm in the night service and there are 150 of them so it will take a while!).  So when I do get ready to start Thessalonians I will probably use these resources:

Gordon Fee.  First and Second Letters to the Thessalonians (NICNT).  Eerdmans, 2009. (Even though there is one particularly strong critique of this commentary on amazon).


Gene L. Green.  The Letters to the Tessalonians (PNTC), Eerdmans, 2002).

Ben Witherington. 1 and 2 Thessalonians: A Socio-Rhetorical Commentary.  Eerdmans, 2006).

John Stott.  The Message of 1&2 Thessalonians.  IVP, 1994.  Stott is one of my favorites and would help with gleening pastoral insights.

G.K. Beale.  1&2 Thessalonians.  IVP, 2003.


any others you’d suggest?
