Leading Catholic scholar and Jesuit priest, this is Joseph A. Fitzmyer's latest contribution to the mammoth, Anchor Yale Bible Commentary Series (Formerly Anchor Bible Commentary). This series, employing scholars from around the world and from Jewish, Catholic and Protestant backgrounds, provides tools to make the Bible easily accessible to the modern reader through "exact translation and extended exposition". Furthermore this series, as a consortium of biblical knowledge, illuminates the ancient setting of specific biblical books, their transmission through history, as well as significant information on the linguistic issues faced by biblical interpreters.Fitzmyer's work, First Corinthians in many ways embodies the spirit and scope of this series by providing a section by section commentary on the entire book, an extensive introduction to the social, historical, textual, and theological issues surrounding First Corinthians which he describes as "the letter in the Pauline corpus which reveals the Apostle at his best".
This new translation of First Corinthians includes an introduction and extensive commentary that has been composed to explain the religious meaning of this Pauline epistle. Joseph Fitzmyer discusses all the usual introductory problems associated with the epistle, including issues of its authorship, time of composition, and purpose, and he also presents a complete outline. The author analyzes the epistle, pericope by pericope, discussing the meaning of each one in a comment and explaining details in the notes. The book supplies a bibliography on the various passages and problems for readers who wish to investigate further, and useful indexes complete the volume. "First Corinthians" will be of interest to general readers who wish to learn more about the Pauline letters, and also to pastors, college and university teachers, graduate students studying the Bible, and professors of Biblical studies.
