Item Description...
Overview
First Corinthians is a letter in every sense of the term. It was part of an ongoing correspondence between Paul and those whome he had evangelized in the provincial capital of Achaia. It followed the usual conventions adopted by letter-writers in the Hellenistic world. It is a product of Hellenistic culture, Christian faith, and Paul's pastoral care for brothers and sisters in Corinth. The apostle believes that they were called to be God's holy people. His letter spells out for them the implications of their call to holiness.

Publishers Description

2000 Catholic Press Association Award Winner

One of the most exciting of Paul's letters, 1 Corinthians offers a vantage point from which modern readers can reflect on diverseness in Christian Churches today. In "First Corinthians," Raymond Collins explores that vantage point as well as the challenge Paul posed to the people of his time - and continues to pose in ours - to allow the gospel message to engage them in their daily lives.

Pal introduces us to a flesh-and-blood community whose humanness was al too apparent. Sex, death, and money were among the issues they had to face. Social conflicts and tension within their Christian community were part of their daily lives. Paul uses al of his diplomacy, rhetorical skill, and authority to exhort the Corinthian community to be as one in Christ.

In examining Paul's message and method, Collins approaches 1 Corinthians as a Hellenistic letter written to people dealing with real issues in the Hellenistic world. He cites existing Hellenistic letters to show that Paul was truly a letter writer of his own times. Collins makes frequent references to the writings of the philosophic moralists to help clarify the way in which Paul spoke to his beloved Corinthians. He also comments on some aspects of the social circumstances in which the Christians of Corinth actually lived.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
commentary  Feb 18, 2008
The Sacra Pagina series of New Testament commentarys are worthwhile books to have on any religious practitioner's bookshelf.
 
A singularly valuable tool for professionals, clergy, and religious educators  Nov 5, 2006
Written by biblical scholar Raymond F. Collins and edited by Daniel J. Harrington S.J., First Corinthians is seventh in the Sacra Pagina series of fresh translations and modern expositions of the books of the New Testament. In addition to the translated text itself, First Corinthians is packed cover to cover with methodological perspectives, background information, interpretations, sources for reference and further study, and much more. Written for intermediate to advanced bible studies students, and a singularly valuable tool for professionals, clergy, and religious educators, First Corinthians is as highly recommended for its depth and exacting scrutiny of source material as the rest of the Sacra Pagina series.
