Product Description

"Thiselton writes perceptively of the challenges posed to the Corinthians by a competitive and status-seeking society overimpressed by powerful rhetoric and systems of social patronage. The present shorter commentary will admirably make those challenges clear to a wider audience. Highly recommended,"---Theological Book Review. 341 pages, softcover. Eerdmans.

Publisher's Description

Anthony Thiselton's lengthy New International Greek Testament Commentary volume The First Epistle to the Corinthians (2000) has become a standard work on 1 Corinthians. In this "shorter" commentary Thiselton draws on his excellent exegesis from that volume but combines it afresh with keen practical and pastoral application for readers at all levels.

Thiselton delves deeply into the context and text of Paul's first Corinthian letter as he suggests, section by section, how the book applies to pastoral and practical issues. He draws vivid parallels between the growing church in Corinth and the twenty-first-century church, demonstrating that today's church also faces a seductive culture of competition and consumerism. The church in Corinth preferred its self-centered theology to the Christ-centered gospel of the wider apostolic church. Paul's response in 1 Corinthians, amplified by Thiselton's commentary, becomes a living, practical, transforming word from God for Christians today.

Author Bio

Editorial Reviews

Craig L. Blomberg
— Denver Seminary
"In his 1400-page NIGTC volume on 1 Corinthians, Anthony Thiselton explained that he addressed every legitimate question he could think of that someone might ask of the text! The result was a masterpiece, but one that few readers will ever fully scrutinize. In a new labor of love, Thiselton has now created this marvelous digest, at the same time interacting with the newest round of research, adding applicational gems into his exegesis, and inserting thoughtful questions for reflection and implementation at the end of each section. This will immediately become the main text for my English Bible 1 Corinthians elective."

Review of Biblical Literature
"This is a superb pastoral commentary. It is one that a pastor could use for exegetical as well as pastoral information within a sermon. . . This commentary provides a good model of exegetical and pastoral writing and is well worth having on the shelf of anyone working in ministry."

Walter Moberly
— Durham University
"Lucidly, accessibly, and engagingly, Thiselton brings alive the subject matter about which St. Paul writes. Thus, this commentary searchingly illuminates the nature of Christian lifestyle and spirituality today."
