"In a lucid analysis which pays careful attention to nuances
of the text, Professor Lüdemann situates PaulÕs earliest letter in the
very first phase of emerging Christianity. This is historical
scholarship at its best. The book deserves to be studied by scholars
and laypeople alike."
Heikki Räisänen, Professor emeritus, Academy of Finland
"Gerd Lüdemann has once again demonstrated his abilities in
textual and historical analysis. He highlights the importance of 1
Thessalonians as the first written document in early Christianity,
dating it a decade earlier than most have supposed. Readers will find
the book intelligent in its style, important in its content, and
penetrating in its analyses."
Eugene TeSelle, Professor emeritus, Vanderbilt University
"A masterful exegetical discussion of the earliest of PaulÕs
letters, readable for scholars, pastors and laypeople alike. Lüdemann
plumbs the depths of the letter so vital to studies of the Second
Coming of Jesus, and to that much awaited rapture made popular by the
Left Behind series. Eager readers of all kinds will find this book
engaging, informative and useful."
Kathleen Corley, Professor, University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh
