About the Book

Bibliographic Details


Title: From Hope to Despair in Thessalonica ...

Publisher: Cambridge University Press

Binding: Hardcover/Hardback

Book Condition: New

Description:

This ground-breaking analysis cuts to the heart of the critical debate surrounding the two Thessalonian Epistles. Colin R. Nicholl examines the situations giving rise to each Letter with a view to determining how the two relate historically. His book presents an original and compelling hypothesis, arguing that reflected in the Letters are two stages of a single crisis plaguing a recently-formed Greek Church, which spiralled from hope into despair on account of confusion about ‘the end'. In addition to making a fresh case for the authenticity of 2 Thessalonians and resolving one of the most difficult problems in the Bible - the identity of ‘the Restrainer' - this monograph is the most up-to-date and comprehensive analysis of the Thessalonian Epistles available today. It will provide an indispensable resource for scholars and pastors interested in the Thessalonian correspondence. Bookseller Inventory # NICFROMHO

Synopsis: Colin R. Nicholl examines the situations giving rise to each Thessalonian Epistle to determine how the two relate historically. His book presents a compelling hypothesis, arguing that the two letters reflect two stages of a single crisis plaguing a recently formed Greek Church, (which spiralled from hope into despair because of confusion about the "end" time.) This monograph is the most up-to-date and comprehensive account of the Thessalonian Epistles currently available.
