Author Bio

Pheme Perkins (PhD, Harvard University) is professor of theology at Boston College in Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts. She is the author of numerous books, including Introduction to the Synoptic Gospels, Reading the New Testament, Peter: Apostle for the Whole Church, Gnosticism and the New Testament, and several commentaries.

Endorsements

Professor Perkins has produced a commentary on 1 Corinthians that has the merit of being both learned and concise. She provides readers with a wealth of information about the cultural and historical background of the text without neglecting its theological meaning and significance. This is an ideal commentary for students and pastors seeking a reliable guide to one of Paul's most important letters.
-Frank J. Matera,
Andrews-Kelly-Ryan Professor of Biblical Studies, Catholic University of America

This relatively concise and accessible commentary helpfully situates Paul's letter in its first-century context through its valuable discussions of key background issues and its generous use of sidebars with quotations of relevant material from ancient sources. Pastors and students will benefit from the contextual focus as well as from Perkins's informed approach to theological interpretation, even if they reach some different conclusions along the way.
-Roy Ciampa,
professor of New Testament, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary

Pheme Perkins is renowned for her independence of mind and the focus and precision of her thinking. Here she combines these rare qualities in an account of 1 Corinthians that is thoroughly up to date on the best scholarship and elegantly brings its intended readership into the central questions of the letter--cultural, literary, and theological.
-Troels Engberg-Pedersen,
faculty of theology, University of Copenhagen
