Product Description

In "The Corinthian Body," Dale B. Martin contends that in Paul's first letter to the Corinthians his various disagreements with the Corinthians were the result of a fundamental conflict over the ideological construction of the human body (and hence the church as the body of Christ). This led to differing opions on a variety of theological viewpoints-including the role of rhetoric and philosophy in a hierarchical society, the eating of meat sacrificed to idols, prostitution, sexual desire and marriage, and the resurrection of the body. Softcover, 300 pages

    This book is useful in a study of Corinthians. Some passages are explained as to how Paul's words address the hierarchal, rhetorical culture of his day. These clarifications give meaning to the passages. The explanations are not verse by verse, rather they give meaning to the passage as a whole. I would recommend it.
