Item description for The First Epistle to the Corinthians (Blacks New Testament Commentarie #7) by C. K. Barrett...
Overview Since its appearance nearly 35 years ago, Black's New Testament Commentary Series has been hailed by both scholars and pastors for its insightful interpretations and reliable commentary. Each book in the series includes: an insightful introduction to the important historical, literary, and theological issues; key terms and phrases from the translation highlighted in the commentary where they are discussed; explanations of special Greek or foreign terms; references to important primary and secondary literature; and a Scripture index. Perhaps more than any other Pauline letter, 1 Corinthians is known for affording insight into the nature and world of the earliest Christian communities. Whether it concerns Corinthian disputes over "wisdom," debates over "speaking in tongues," or questions about "resurrection," 1 Corinthians shows us the early church "warts and all." And that is what makes it such exciting, and relevant, reading today! Eminent New Testament scholar C. K. Barrett makes the text come alive both in its original setting and in the life of the church today. Barrett's arguments will challenge even the most seasoned scholars to rethink their interpretation of the many controversial passages.

Reviews - What do customers think about The First Epistle to Corinthians?
puts1 Corinthians into a framework for understanding Oct 3, 1999
Although I haven't read many commentaries as of yet, this one increased my understanding of 1 Corinthians greatly, especially in regards to what was going on at Corinth and how Paul was reacting to it. Although sometimes I felt really bogged down in details, I know they were important.
