Product Description

Analyzing 1 & 2 Corinthians in terms of Greco-Roman rhetoric and ancient social conditions and customs, Witherington sheds fresh light on Paul's message and his relationship with his Corinthian converts. This innovative approach also features commentary that discusses the text according to its rhetorical units rather than the usual verse-by-verse method. 492 pages, softcover from Eerdmans.

    Some analyses of scripture focus on the arcane language translations and not enough about the people and their times. Ancient Corinth is a place that yields to a historical perspective of Paul's letters. This book bridges that need.
