In his letter to the Philippians, Paul expresses many of his ideas about how Christians should live life together. His words on fellowship and upright conduct are carried over into his letters to the Thessalonians, in which Paul exhorts the church to live in a way that pleases God.

Philippians and the Thessalonians all address believers in the first century and in the twenty-first century with words that are practical and deeply spiritual:

  • Philippians appeals for unity and rejoicing in the face of suffering.
  • 1 and 2 Thessalonians emphasize having a heart of thanksgiving and also discuss the return of Christ.

Kingdom living is the shape of life in Christ. These letters have taught Christians since the first century to live a life shaped by confidence in what God has promised us, but also to live that life without trying to escape from this world.

Exploring the links between the Bible and our own times, McKnight shares perspectives that reveal the enduring relevance of these Pauline letters for our lives today. Ideal for personal reflection or group study, Philippians and 1 & 2 Thessalonians will help you see God in the biblical context so you can hear from God in your context.
