From the Pen of Pastor Paul by Daniel R. HydeThank you for your interest in reviewing From the Pen of Pastor Paul. This blog tour is now full. You can see our current list of available review books here: LINK.

We hear about it regularly: pastors resigning the ministry, people leaving their churches, churches splitting because of internal discord, and Christians fighting against one another. Paul’s letters to the Thessalonians open up his pastoral heart and theology in a way that addresses contemporary church life, and here Daniel Hyde presents warm exposition with careful application. This is a fine commentary, but it is much more: any Christian will gain from reading the Thessalonian letters alongside this book.

Praise for From the Pen of Pastor Paul:

“The best commentaries on New Testament Epistles are often those that were born the same way as the Epistles themselves: out of the womb of real pastoral concern and ministry. That is what you find in this highly readable book on 1 and 2 Thessalonians. It has an aroma of authenticity about it. Read it and you will sense the heart of the apostle Paul for the 1st century church brought with fresh power into the 21st century.”
-Dr. Conrad Mbewe Pastor of Kabwata Baptist Church and Chancellor of the African Christian University, Lusaka, Zambia

“Danny Hyde unpacks the teaching of Paul’s letters to theThessalonians with a keen eye on the text, a sure grip on the witness of the scriptures as a whole, an awareness of the history of interpretation in the church,and above all with a pastoral heart for people. I warmly commend this stimulating exposition.”
-Dr. Lee Gatiss, Director of the Church Society, Cambridge.

About the Author:
Rev. Daniel R. Hyde–“Pastor Danny” to the members of Oceanside United Reformed Church–has an eclectic past: he was baptized Roman Catholic, was converted in a Foursquare church, attended an Assemblies of God college where he flirted spiritually with Buddhism, Hinduism, Islam, and Judaism before he discovered the riches of the historic Protestant and Reformed Christian faith. All of this prepared him to minister in the diverse religious culture of Southern California. In 2000, while still in seminary, Danny planted the Oceanside United Reformed Church (United Reformed Churches in North America) in Carlsbad/Oceanside, California. Fifteen years on later he continues as pastor and is married with four children. He and his wife enjoy showing hospitality in their home for meals, prayer, and to study the Word.

Daniel R. HydePastor Danny has a Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) from Vanguard University, Master of Divinity (M.Div.) from Westminster Seminary California, and a Master of Theology (Th.M.) from Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary. His Th.M. thesis was entitled, “Of Great Importance and of High Concernment: The Liturgical Theology of John Owen (1616-1683),” and was read by Drs. Joel Beeke, Derek W. H. Thomas, and Mark Jones. He is currently a Ph.D. candidate at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam.
