The epistles of the New Testament provide insight into the realities of the life of the early church, guidance for those called to lead the church, and comfort in the face of theological questions. The Protestant Reformers of the sixteenth century also found wisdom and guidance in these letters. In this RCS volume, Lee Gatiss and Bradley Green guide readers through a diversity of early modern commentary on the New Testament epistles.
Fascination with the end times is not just a recent phenomenon. In this careful study of 1-2 Thessalonians, G. K. Beale offers an introduction and passage-by-passage exposition that highlights the "already-and-not-yet" character of Paul's views of the end times--instruction and counsel that can serve us well today.
Digging into Paul's letters to the Thessalonians, John Stott addresses issues of vital importance today: how the church spreads the gospel, how pastors serve both the gospel and the church, how Christians live according to the gospel, how the gospel offers hope in the midst of trouble, and much more.
Editor Peter Gorday presents selected patristic commentary on Paul's shorter letters, highlighting the usefulness of these texts in doctrinal disputes and practical matters of the early church.
This ACT volume is the second of two volumes that will offer a first English translation of the anonymous fourth-century commentary on the thirteen letters of Paul. Widely viewed as one of the finest pre-Reformation commentaries on the Pauline Epistles, this commentary, until the time of Erasmus, was attributed to Ambrose. The name Ambrosiaster ("Star of Ambrose") seems to hav been given to the anonymous author of the work by its Benedictine editors (1686- 1690).
