The landmark commentary The First Epistle to the Corinthians by this generations leading authority on the biblical hermeneutics is now available in paperback.
Few, if any, commentaries obtain the scope, the depth, or the sheer penetration of the biblical text as this work by Anthony Thiselton. Dealing not only with the linguistic technicalities of the text, the historical context that surrounds it, and the history of how it's been read, Thiselton forges new ground incorporating hermeneutical analysis into his work and by doing so provides students of the New Testament with an unparalleled resource.
He asks not only what Paul meant, but asks why Paul said things the way he said them while unpacking many of the book's hermeneutically enigmatic statements. For specialists, this commentary is an indispensible piece of scholarship that must be dealt with before any legitimate interpretation of First Corinthians can be offered. A historic landmark in commentary publishing.
