Comfort One Another: Reconstructing The Rhetoric And Audience Of 1 Thessalonians (literary Currents In Biblical Interpretation)

"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.

From the Back Cover:

This unique study considers the exegetical and hermeneutical possibilities of analyzing the entire letter of 1 Thessalonians as a letter of consolation. Abraham Smith maintains that Paul wrote 1 Thessalonians with a full knowledge of the tradition of Greco-Roman letters of consolation and chose this genre to sustain members of the Thessalonian church. Smith explicates the social and literary conventions of this tradition and fully discloses why this particular rhetoric of care was employed. Showing how Paul's letter of consolation was understood in Paul's world and by subsequent generations, Smith demonstrates the usefulness of Paul's rhetoric of comfort for modern society.

About the Author:

Abraham Smith is Professor of New Testament at the Southern Methodist University Perkins School of Theology in Dallas, Texas.
