Product Description

The landmark commentary The First Epistle to the Corinthians by this generations leading authority on the biblical hermeneutics is now available in paperback.

Few, if any, commentaries obtain the scope, the depth, or the sheer penetration of the biblical text as this work by Anthony Thiselton. Dealing not only with the linguistic technicalities of the text, the historical context that surrounds it, and the history of how it's been read, Thiselton forges new ground incorporating hermeneutical analysis into his work and by doing so provides students of the New Testament with an unparalleled resource.

He asks not only what Paul meant, but asks why Paul said things the way he said them while unpacking many of the book's hermeneutically enigmatic statements. For specialists, this commentary is an indispensible piece of scholarship that must be dealt with before any legitimate interpretation of First Corinthians can be offered. A historic landmark in commentary publishing.

    One need only compare this volume to most any other commentary to be simply astounded by Thiselton's Commentary. The amount of detail and depth of discussion is amazing. That is not to say that, for instance, the commentary of Fee is not excellent, but nothing I have seen can compare to Thiselton's work. The detailed bibliographies (50-100 titles) listed for every section he works through were immensely helpful to me as I prepared my school papers. A word of warning, however - Thiselton's commentary is not for those who cannot think through complex linguistic and interpretive issues for themselves; the breadth of his reading and comprehension of various opinions is likely to leave the non-scholar in a daze of confusion. That said, this is the best commentary, hands-down, I have ever seen for any book.

    My first choice reference for studying I Corinthians! Academically grounded in and focused on the original language but very readable.

    If you can only afford one in depth commentary on 1 Corinthians, choose this one over Fee.

    This commentary is the best on 1 Corinthians that is available today, and surpasses the ones by Fee and Robertson/Plummer. There is no other commentary that goes into so much detail, and has such a lot of wealthy information. All the major textual issues have been dealt with, and Thiselton has taken into account all other issues that one might raise regarding this commentary. The exegesis is so detailed, even though he was limited by space, that one does not need to consult another commentary on this epistle. He has also provided an in-depth discussion on the language using his own translation of the Greek. Student, scholar and pastor alike will be blessed by the richness of this commentary, and so will the textual critic. I very strongly recommend this commentary, as it will give one a better understanding of this major Pauline epistle.

    This is a welcome addition to the excellent NIGTC series. Thiselton's exegesis is careful and judicious. It is suprisingly lucid for such a technical work. He spends less time dealing with the Greek text than I expected, but he does an excellent job of covering the history of interpretation of 1 Corinthians. Since Thiselton is also a philosopher, he deals quite a bit with the philosophical views of the period in relation to the epistle, which makes this work very unique.While this work is very helpful and unique, it still does not, IMO, surpass the monumental work of Gordon Fee (NICNT). I recommend using Fee and Thiselton together. Thiselton's commentary on 1 Corinthians is quite an accomplishment and is very helpful in understanding the background, purpose and meaning of 1 Corinthians.
