Hamilton Smith is well known for his concise, easy-to-read, Christ-centered commentaries. This little work on the two epistles to the Thessalonians is no exception.
In connection with First and Second Thessalonians the author has written that, "In the different epistles, God has amde rich provision of spiritual food suitable for every stage of Christian growth. The Thessalonian Epistles were written to the young in the faith. Thus we do not find unfolding of the counsels of God, or of the Mystery of the Church, as in the Ephesians and Colossians." In both epistles, the apostle rather, focuses on the subject of the Lord's coming.
