Sorrow not as those who have no hope.

Look Inside the Book

We tend to think eschatology is important but impractical. What does the millennium have to do with Monday morning?

Quite a bit, Paul says.

The Thessalonians were suffering intensely. They were being killed by their own next-door neighbors. Paul writes to comfort them—and he does it with some of the most debated end times passages in all of Scripture.

In this commentary, Douglas Wilson shows how tangled issues like the Man of Sin and the Day of the Lord aren’t simply fodder for speculation. They relate directly to how we should handle our daily trials. Practice church discipline. Show up to work on time. Suffer with hope.

This is because in the mines of difficulty, we find the diamonds of promise.
