"The book is valuable for its historical coverage -there are 89 'brief biographies' at the end of the book- and also for Thiselton's own brief but wisecomments." (Journal for the Study of the NewTestament, 1 November 2012)"I can think of no person better qualified to write areception-history commentary than Anthony Thiselton, because heknows what reception history means and how it plays out ininterpretation. This commentary is a treasure trove of exegeticaland theological insights gleaned from the vast and interestingarray of those who not only have interpreted these importantletters to the Thessalonians but have responded in prose and poetryto their major themes and ideas."
--Stanley E. Porter, President and Dean, andProfessor of New Testament, McMaster Divinity College, Hamilton,Ontario, Canada

"With an uncanny grasp of the "afterlife" of 1 and 2Thessalonians, Anthony Thiselton demonstrates why it is crucialthat we understand that we aren't the first people toencounter these Pauline letters. Not surprisingly, with this forayinto the emerging area of reception history, Anthony Thiselton hasset a high bar for those who will follow."
--Joel B. Green, Professor of New TestamentInterpretation, Fuller Theological Seminary

"It will be a key resource for all who would endeavour tounderstand how Paul has been read and should be read. Lucid instyle, this volume is not only immensely scholarly it is also anaccessible and extremely enjoyable read!"
--Professor Alan J Torrance, Chair of SystematicTheology, University of St Andrews
