Product Description

The First Letter to the Corinthians [PNTC] is a careful, sometimes innovative, mid-level commentary that touches on an astonishingly wide array of important, sensitive issues that have urgent resonances in twenty-first-century Christian life. As such it is immanently practical, but also thoroughly exegetical, well written, and text oriented. Roy Ciampa and Brian Rosner reveal how 1 Corinthians directly addresses the claims of unity and truth, church discipline, sexual matters, the Lord's supper, the nature of love, Christian leadership, while touching on significant academic questions such as verbal aspect and the use of the OT in the NT and many other significant topics.

Endorsements

Darrell L. Bock
-Dallas Theological Seminary
"Up to date, replete with many fresh readings, and rooted in the complex historical context that was first century Corinth, this commentary is in touch with those issues that make 1 Corinthians so relevant for the church. Both useful and edifying, Ciampa and Rosner's work is a partner to keep close at hand as one probes this ethically relevant epistle."

Richard Bauckham
-University of St. Andrews
"Two experts on 1 Corinthians provide detailed yet lucid exegesis of one of Paul's more difficult letters. I particularly appreciate the very full introduction, which covers many more topics than the usual introductions to a Pauline letter."

Philip H. Towner
-Nida Institute for Biblical Scholarship
"Here 1 Corinthians emerges as a unified and comprehensive exercise in radical theological and ethical reorientation, whereas past interpretations all too often defined its purposes merely in terms of addressing a list of various concerns. This clarification of Paul's agenda creates a compelling context for thinking about the shape of Christian faith today."

James D. G. Dunn
-University of Durham
"For the past generation research into and commentaries on 1 Corinthians have focused on clarifying the social and literary contexts of the letter. Now Rosner and Ciampa remind us that the primary background for Paul's theology and ethics was his biblical and Jewish heritage. And in demonstrating how much fresh light can be shed on the letter by taking account of that heritage, they also show that 1 Corinthians still has much to contribute to the discussion of present-day issues."

James Carleton Paget
-Cambridge University
"Written in an impressively clear manner and assuming a varied audience of students, pastors, and scholars, this new commentary represents a major contribution to recent discussion of this much-controverted Pauline letter."

Journal of the Evangelical Theological Society
"A valuable resource for a broad range of pastors, students, and scholars. . . . This commentary deserves to be one of the first commentaries consulted for the interpretation of this significant book."

Catholic Biblical Quarterly
"This meticulous, evenhanded commentary will richly repay multiple readings. It should well serve pastors and interpreters of Paul for many years."

Restoration Quarterly
"Academically balanced, insightful, fresh. . . . This commentary will undoubtedly be a valuable addition to the library of any minister or academic."

Stone Campbell Journal
"Thorough, rich, rewarding."

Religious Studies Review
"Will be of great value to any student, pastor, or scholar seeking a fresh interpretation."
