Item Description...
In this highly acclaimed work, Bruce Winter gathers for the first time all the available evidence on the first-century sophistic movement from two major centers of learning in the East. Together with the writings of the contemporary Hellenistic Jews, Philo and Paul, he discusses all the protagonists and antagonists of this movement in Alexandria and Corinth. This study provides important insights into the problems that this elitist movement created for Diaspora Jews in Alexandria and for Christians in Corinth. It also traces the origins of the Second Sophistic to the reign of Nero. Substantially revised and including a new foreword by G. W. Bowersock, this volume is also supported by a web site -- www.sophists.info -- featuring additional archaeological evidence and photographs.

Interesting Insights Into Corinthians.  Jun 16, 2006
If the author had put the english equivilent in parentheses next to the Greek terms, (even the transliteration would have helped) I would have given it 5 stars. It is however, still an informative and interesting read. But, a person who is not familiar with NT Greek will most likely get bogged down in some of the later chapters. Really a shame though, because it would not have taken much to make it reader friendly.

The premise is simple. Paul wrote Corinthians in response to the the practice of sophistry which had permetated the church at Corinth. When seen in that light, many of the passages previously obscured become clear. (If you are not familiar with the first sophists or the terms concerning Greek rhetoric you may want to read "Retrieving the Ancients, an Introduction to Greek Philosophy" as a preamble. I'm sure there are other introductory books out there as well.) A glossary on the basic terms of Greek rhetoric would have been immensely helpful, but unfortunately none was provided. Obviously the intended audience was academicians. A shame really, because with a few alterations it could reach a much wider audience.

Part of the sophistic tradition was that the sophist teachers would gather around themselves disciples and then begin contending vigorously with other sophists--- Does the "I am of Paul, I am of Apollos" ring a bell now?"

A very good scholarly explanation and exegesis of the Corinthian letters.
