Product Description

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.

Publisher's Description

This superb volume in the New International Greek Testament Commentary series provides the most detailed, definitive, and distinctive commentary on 1 Corinthians available in English to date.

One of the world's most respected Christian theologians, Anthony Thiselton here provides in-depth discussion of the language of 1 Corinthians, presents his own careful translation of the Greek, traces the main issues of interpretation from the church fathers to the present, and highlights topics of theological, ethical, and sociohistorical interest today, including ethics and "rights," marriage, divorce and remarriage, "headship," gender, prophecy, and many others.

No other commentary on 1 Corinthians embodies the wealth and depth of detail presented in Thiselton's work, which takes account of nearly all scholarly research on 1 Corinthians and incorporates substantial bibliographies throughout. In his commentary Thiselton indeed addresses virtually every question that thoughtful, serious readers -- scholars, students, pastors, teachers -- may wish to ask of or about the text of 1 Corinthians. His work truly offers a fresh, comprehensive, and original contribution to our understanding of this major epistle and its contemporary relevance.

Author Bio

Anthony C. Thiselton is professor emeritus of Christian theology at the University of Nottingham, England.

Editorial Reviews

Evangelical Review of Theology
"A prodigious commentary on First Corinthians which will be welcomed by students, scholars, and pastors alike. . . A fine scholarly achievement. The substantial bibliographies, the excursuses incorporating ancient as well as the most recent scholarly discussion, and the comprehensive indices at the end make the volume not only a welcome addition to the literature on First Corinthians, but also a useful resource for the study of Pauline theology."

Theological Studies
"The volume's comprehensive scope demonstrates Thiselton's command of both this letter and the wider issues of Pauline studies. The exegesis is careful and rigorously represents the various interpretations available for nearly every passage. . . The volume is extremely lucid for such a technical work and will serve the field of New Testament studies for many years to come. . . Highly recommended."

Raymond F. Collins
"I have read Anthony Thiselton's commentary with delight. It is an impressive conversation with the best of contemporary interpretation of Paul's first letter to the Corinthians. Its clearly articulated juxtaposition of opposing views makes it a valuable tool for those who want to go further in the study of one of the most important documents of the early church."

Craig L. Blomberg
"Every New Testament book except 1 Corinthians has had at least one major English-language commentary on its Greek text published in recent years. For 1 Corinthians the last such commentary was Robertson and Plummer's revised edition in 1914! Now this gap has been amply filled by one of the most detailed, widely ranging, and exegetically compelling commentaries ever written on any book of the Bible. Scholars, pastors, and students alike are all now massively indebted to Tony Thiselton for this prodigious work."
