Message of I & II Thessalonians: The Gospel and the End of Time (Bible Speaks Today)
Stott, John R. W.
The gospel will stand to the end of time. The gospel began in time and has been proclaimed throughout history. Ultimately, it will be fulfilled at Christ's return. These are the central truths the apostle Paul called the Thessalonian church back to again and again.
Newly planted, the Thessalonian church grew in strength as it spread the gospel in the surrounding area. But some theological and moral problems also grew. To build up and correct these believers Paul addressed many issues which concern Christians today—how the church spreads the gospel, how pastors serve both the gospel and the church, how Christians must live according to the gospel, and how the gospel gives us hope in the midst of the troubles all around us.
Originally published as The Gospel and the End of Time, with scholarly rigor and pastoral care, John Stott opens up these important letters to us in a way that will enlighten our minds, encourage our hearts, and lift our souls to worship the God of the gospel and of time.
