Dr. Andy Johnson, professor of New Testament at NTS, recently published 1 and 2 Thessalonians in The Two Horizons New Testament Commentary series. The Two Horizons series offers a unique approach to biblical exegesis with a paragraph-by-paragraph engagement with the text that is deliberately theological in focus.

Dr. Andy Johnson's new commentary on 1 and 2 Thessalonians is now available in paperback. His commentary approaches the biblical text theologically and will greatly contribute to your understanding of the Thessalonian letters.

After a verse by-verse commentary, Dr. Johnson closely examines the theology of the two epistles, focusing especially on the topics of eschatology, holiness, and election in light of his missional reading of 1 and 2 Thessalonians. In his exegetical and theological analyses, Dr. Johnson considers canonical concerns, doctrinal commitments, ecclesial practices, proposals from contemporary systematic theology, and insights gleaned from the field of neuroscience regarding personal and community formation, all of which help to clarify and enrich readers' understanding of various passages.

"What I aim to do in it is to stimulate critical reflection on the church’s beliefs and practices in order to facilitate the church’s ongoing formation into the visible body of the cruciform, living Christ to whom Scripture bears witness." -- Andy Johnson
