1 Corinthians: A Shorter Exegetical and Pastoral Commentary

Front Cover
Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing, Nov 7, 2006 - Religion - 325 pages
Anthony Thiselton s lengthy New International Greek Testament Commentary volume The First Epistle to the Corinthians (2000) has become a standard work on 1 Corinthians. In this "shorter" commentary Thiselton draws on his excellent exegesis from that volume but combines it afresh with keen practical and pastoral application for readers at all levels.

Thiselton delves deeply into the context and text of Paul s first Corinthian letter as he suggests, section by section, how the book applies to pastoral and practical issues. He draws vivid parallels between the growing church in Corinth and the twenty-first-century church, demonstrating that today's church also faces a seductive culture of competition and consumerism. The church in Corinth preferred its self-centered theology to the Christ-centered gospel of the wider apostolic church. Paul s response in 1 Corinthians, amplified by Thiselton s commentary, becomes a living, practical, transforming word from God for Christians today.
