Item Description...
Upwardly mobile Christians facing radically diverse ethnic, religious, economic and social conditions. The church divided over issues of leadership and authority, sexual morality, gender and worship, marriage and divorce. Sound familiar? First-century Corinth and its challenges were not so different from our own. Yet in the midst of this detailed, practical letter is found one of the greatest paeans to love ever written. And, of course, love is just what is needed to address these complex human issues whether in the first century or the twenty-first. In this deft analysis of 1 Corinthians, readers will find an introduction that discusses the social, cultural and historical background of the city and its people. Rounding out the introduction are explorations of the letter's occasion and date, authorship and purpose, and major theological themes. Passage-by-passage commentary follows that seeks to explain what the letter means for us today as well as what it meant for its original hearers.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Not the Best, but Very Very Good Nonetheless  Jan 26, 2007
I had to write an exegesis paper on a passage in 1 Cor. for a college class. I used four different commentaries, of which this was one. This commentary was very simular to two of the other three in terms of the way the material was presented and the level of detail. That said, be aware that the level of detail is not extraordinarily high. The author comments on major sections rather than on each verse and his discussions are adequate without being very deep. Keep in mind that this is the same with most other commentaries (the one by Gordon Fee being a notable exception) so really this book compares rather favorably to most others.

The most valuable section of this book was on the social background of Corinth. There was some information there regarding Corinthian society that was not to be found in the other three commentaries.

Bottom Line: Valuable resource for academic papers as well as for preaching.
