Reviews

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.
Darrell L. Bock
Dallas Theological Seminary
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.
Richard Bauckham
University of St. Andrews
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.
