Description

How can two brief letters to a church in first-century Macedonia speak to us today?

John Stott believes that Paul’s letters to the Christians in Thessalonica offer three main guidelines to churches at the beginning of the twenty-first century; a model for ministry, as Paul’s self-giving, prayerful love for the church challenges Christian leaders; a vision for the local church, as the apostle touches on evangelism, pastoral care, ethical standards, fellowship, worship, obedience and future hope; an affirmation of our faith, as he repeatedly returns to the foundation facts that ‘Christ has died, Christ is risen, and Christ will come again.’

Characterised by John Stott’s customary clarity and perception, this exposition illuminates aspects of Christian life and service that are at the heart of God’s purposes for this people today.
