Item Description...
This unprecedented commentary by Ben Witherington III sheds fresh light on the context and content of Paul's message by analyzing 1 and 2 Corinthians in terms of Greco Roman Rhetoric-- the standard means of persuasion in his day-- and ancient social conditions and customs. This innovative approach, combined with commentary that discusses the text according to its rhetorical units rather than the usual verse-by-verse procedure, offers a new way of looking at Paul's relationship with his Corinthian converts.

Publishers Description
This unprecedented commentary applies an exegetical method informed by both sociological insight and rhetorical analysis to the study of 1 and 2 Corinthians. In addition to using traditional exegetical and historical methods, this unique study also analyzes the two letters of Paul in terms of Greco-Roman rhetoric and ancient social conditions and customs to shed fresh light on the context and content of Paul's message. Includes 21 black-and-white photos and illustrations.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Walking the Streets of Corinth  Sep 14, 2007
I really appreciated this commentary greatly. It helped we to get a feel for 1st Century Corinth and to understand the motivations behind the actions of the Corinthian Church. It was a significant reference too in a post graduate essay on "Discernment in the Corinthian Church".
wonderful  May 30, 2007
I used this text for a class in seminary. Witherington has helped me wrestle with the difficulties of Paul's often controversial Corinthian correspondence. Witherington helps the Corinthian exegete to understand the culture bound context from which Paul was writing from and writing to (he offers 75+ pages of helpful guidance to navigate the Corinthian correspondence). Placing the letters in their social and rhetorical contexts, Paul's words spring to new life. I would highly recommend this text paired with Fee's commentary on 1 Corinthians as conversation partners.
Commentary about People, for People  Sep 22, 2005
Ben Witherington's work exemplifies the goals of good socio-rhetorical commentary--describing people, where they live, how they talk, what they do. The tools he uses help us fill in the gaps that scripture leaves out and give us a fuller picture of the New Testament world, especially Corinth and Paul's church there. Because I am a pastor whose job is a people job, his work makes my job easier and helps me to focus on the message for my people well.

I am grateful for his description of a church fragmenting in confusion, and how the Gospel Paul preaches can heal it!
