In discussing the content, setting, and authenticity of the two Thessalonian letters, Thiselton examines the responses from scholars, poets, hymn writers, preachers, theologians, and biblical scholars throughout the ages. He also investigates the issues of feminist biblical interpretation raised by the letters, including Paul\'s allegedly manipulative strategy in laying claim to authoritative fatherhood. --From publisher\'s description.<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:description<\/a> \"1 Thessalonians.
