1 Thessalonians as a Study in Church Planting

Plating a new church? Why not study 1 Thessalonians? The letter opens a wide window on a newly planted church in the middle of the first century -- how it came into being, what Paul taught it, and what its strengths and weaknesses were. Paul called it a model church. I have no doubt that lessons are to be drawn from it for local churches today.
