Book Description

Review Evangelical Review of Theology A prodigious commentary on First Corinthians which will be welcomed by students, scholars, and pastors alike. . . A fine scholarly achievement. The substantial bibliographies, the excursuses incorporating ancient as well as the most recent scholarly discussion, and the comprehensive indices at the end make the volume not only a welcome addition to the literature on First Corinthians, but also a useful resource for the study of Pauline theology.Theological Studies The volumes comprehensive scope demonstrates Thiseltons command of both this letter and the wider issues of Pauline studies. The exegesis is careful and rigorously represents the various interpretations available for nearly every passage. . . The volume is extremely lucid for such a technical work and will serve the field of New Testament studies for many years to come. . . Highly recommended.Raymond F. Collins I have read Anthony Thiseltons commentary with delight. It is an impressive conversation with the best of contemporary interpretation of Pauls first letter to the Corinthians. Its clearly articulated juxtaposition of opposing views makes it a valuable tool for those who want to go further in the study of one of the most important documents of the early church.Craig L. Blomberg Every New Testament book except 1 Corinthians has had at least one major English-language commentary on its Greek text published in recent years. For 1 Corinthians the last such commentary was Robertson and Plummers revised edition in 1914! Now this gap has been amply filled by one of the most detailed, widely ranging, and exegetically compelling commentaries ever written on any book of the Bible. Scholars, pastors, and students alike are all now massively indebted to Tony Thiselton for this prodigious work. Read more About the Author Anthony C.
