Overview

Where will you be when Christ returns? What will you be doing? Even more importantly, when Christ evaluates your life, what will He say? What will He do? The church in Thessalonica had similar concerns. They were living under intense persecution and thought that they must be in the Great Tribulation. Paul assured them that they were not, and identified several key events that must come before the Day of the Lord. Furthermore, he tells his readers how to live so they will be pleasing to God and glad to be seen by Christ.
This Study Guide for LIFE directs readers through the complexities of this epistle by a three-pronged approach to explain what the text says, what it means and how to apply it to their lives. This is done by: 1) offering explanations of our current understanding of the more difficult passages; 2) asking readers questions that can be answered directly from the text to focus attention on specific aspects of the letter; and 3) asking probing questions that encourage readers to examine their own lives in light of the return of Christ. The Study Guide is appropriate for the study efforts of individuals, small groups or teachers preparing to explain this book. Whether you are a curious seeker or a professional minister, the Study Guide for LIFE will direct your studies into the heart of end time prophecies, but also to the very heart of Jesus Christ Himself.

About the Author

James K. Crews, B-Th, MA-Th, (he prefers "Jim") is an ordained minister who has served as Bible teacher, church leader, missionary, international conference speaker and academic dean of a Bible college. He's done all those things, but that's not who he is. He's just your basic, shy analytical kind of guy who sees himself as a follower of Jesus, one who has spent his life studying God's Word and getting to know Him. He has assembled a lifetime of learning to create the Study Guides for LIFE to point believers toward Jesus so they can also know Him and make Him known.
His theology is thoroughly conservative, evangelical, charismatic and Wesleyan. His study guides strive for unity in the body of Christ and a dependency on the Scriptures rather than on denominational dogma. With theology degrees from both the Independent Assemblies of God and a conservative Baptist seminary, he presents both sides of conflicting views. His goal is to expand the readers' awareness of the issues while directing them to the Scriptures and the father-heart of God so they can develop their own understanding and conclusions.
