"As I have been teaching on 1 Corinthians, I found this work very beneficial. Not only is the storyline intriguing, but this book also presents itself as a pedagogical tool. Here students can 'feel' what life must have been like in first century Graeco-Roman society--a culture foreign to many of us today. Witherington's book brings biblical times alive and is thus a wonderful gift to the church. It brings us closer to our spiritual ancestors and their experience of the risen Lord in a society hostile to the gospel."--Benjamin Marx, Trinity Journal, Spring 2013
"[T]his is an appealing view of the social world of Paul and Corinth. I have no doubt that it will arouse the interest and capture the imagination of readers."--Sarah Whittle, Evangelical Quarterly, 86.2 (2014)
"I highly recommend this fresh approach to familiar territory: it will illuminate as well as entertain!"--Michael A.G. Haykin, Credo Magazine, May 2012
"The book would be an ideal introduction to a course on 1 Corinthians, or to a course on Paul and his mission. It is easy to read, but very well informed by Witherington's scholarship."--David Wenham, Journal for the Study of the New Testament, 35(5)
"This is historical fiction at its best."--World Magazine, October 27, 2012
"Whether you're well acquainted with Paul's letters to the Corinthian church or are encountering them for the first time, this book will bring the biblical text to life."--Matthew M. Whitehead, Bible Study Magazine, September/October 2012
