One of the world's most respected Christian theologians, Anthony Thiselton here provides in-depth discussion of the language of 1 Corinthians, presents his own careful translation of the Greek, traces the main issues of interpretation from the church fathers to the present, and highlights topics of theological, ethical and sociohistorical interest today.
In his commentary, Thiselton indeed addresses virtually every question that thoughtful, serious readers - scholars, students, pastors, teachers - may wish to ask of or about the text of 1 Corinthians.
"I have read Anthony Thiselton's commentary with delight. It is an impressive conversation with the best of contemporary interpretation of Paul's 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." - Raymond F. Collins
