1 and 2 Thessalonians (Paperback)
Each chapter of A Word from His Word focuses on a single word or phrase from a short biblical passage. By returning to a simple but effective approach to Bible reading, your daily times will be invigorated.
1 and 2 Thessalonians were written by St. Paul, Silas, and Timothy while they were in Corinth on a missionary journey. Paul had briefly visited Thessalonica and was anxious to hear how the church had survived without his presence and teaching. Timothy had recently returned from Thessalonica with positive news: the church was alive, well, and thriving.
However, the people's interest in spirituality had clouded the thinking of some and Paul was quick to refocus them on the truth they had originally been taught. Modern society, like that of ancient Thessalonica, is full of many beliefs and abstract spirituality. We can readily be deceived into adopting some of these abstractions into our lives and churches. Paul, Silas, and Timothy would encourage us to hold fast to the truth of the original gospel.
We pray that as you read this edition of A Word from His Word, your own experience of Him will be recentred and renewed.
