Another book, which is available from and also as a Logos book, is my new commentary on Thessalonians. Click HERE.


1-2 Thessalonians by Zondervan includes commentary, practical application, and my own translation. This one does contain some Greek: if you don’t read it, make your pastor a nice present!

What does it mean to “pray without ceasing”? Which comes first, the rapture or the tribulation? Who or what is “restraining” the Man of Sin? How do we disciple? How should a Christian act at work? How do we defeat stubborn sins?

Again, some of my commentary shows up in OpenOurEyesLord:

    1. Kim, hi! Paul in fact never says. It is a popular teaching these days that it is a reference to a supposed (but not mentioned) “rapture” of the church before the tribulation. This is what is called a “novel” doctrine, since no-one taught that interpretation before around 1950.

      Here are some of my thoughts on it. Blessings in 2022! Gary
