Paul and the Macedonians is the fifth in the series The Life and Letters of Paul. This study explores the letters to the Thessalonians and the Philippians.

Drawing on the historical data about the Macedonian congregations and their unique relationship to the Greco-Roman culture and to Paul, the author explores the driving forces behind Paul's correspondence to them and how Paul hoped to support them in their lives in Christ.

The study has six sessions:
  • The Macedonian Letters in Context
  • Sustaining Faith in a Hostile World
  • As We Await Christ's Coming
  • The Day of the Lord
  • The Beloved Saints in Philippi
  • Dispute, Division; Harmony, Unity
  • To see another group study offered by Cokesbury, go to the Adult Bible Studies website.
