(PUBWestminster/John Knox)Talk about practical theology! First Corinthians is a foremost model for how Christians should relate to the cultural, ethical, and theological issues of their time and place. Grant recovers the principles Paul lived by, showing how Christianity can be adapted to altogether new situations. 200 pages, softcover.
Though the apostle Paul wrote letters to many of the churches he founded, none of his extant letters reveal more about him, his missionary activity, and the community of faith he sought to pastor than 1 Corinthians. In 1 Corinthians, Paul tried to influence--even control--the church in the context of a city that had lasting memories of Greek democracy but the present realities of a Roman proconsul. This volume highlights Paul as apostle, missionary, and pastor against the backdrop of the Greco-Roman culture, economics, and politics.
Robert M. Grant is Professor Emeritus of New Testament and Early Christianity at the University of Chicago Divinity School in Chicago, Illinois. He is a renowned authority on the history of early Christianity.
