Item description for 1 Corinthians: An Introduction and Commentary (Tyndale New Testament Commentaries) by Leon L. Morris...

Overview
The cosmopolitan city of Corinth was the site of one of Paul's greatest evangelistic successes. Yet despite Paul's having founded the church there, it was full of contention and strife. Dissension ran the gamut from questions about leadership to incest. Some believers were taking fellow Christians to court. There were questions about marriage, celibacy, food offered to idols, public worship and spiritual gifts. In response Paul offered to them, and to us, some of his most profound thinking on the body of Christ, love and the resurrection. Leon Morris, with his characteristic clarity and pastoral heart, sets the issues before us and offers perspectives on the letter's perennial relevance. The Tyndale New Testament Commentaries have long been a trusted resource for Bible study. Written by some of the world's most distinguished evangelical scholars, these twenty volumes offer clear, reliable and relevant explanations of every book in the New Testament. These Tyndale volumes are designed to help readers understand what the Bible actually says and what it means. The introduction to each volume gives a concise but thorough description of the authorship, date and historical background of the biblical book under consideration. The commentary itself examines the text section by section, drawing out its main themes. It also comments on individual verses and deals with problems of interpretation. The aim throughout is to get at the true meaning of the Bible and to make its message plain to readers today.

Leon Morris, with his characteristic clarity and pastoral heart, sets the issues before us and offers perspectives on the letter's perennial relevance. The original, unrevised text of this volume has been completely retypeset and printed in a larger, more attractive format with the new cover design for the series.

Reviews - What do customers think about 1 Corinthians: An Introduction and Commentary (Tyndale New Testament Commentaries)?

Overall good  Apr 30, 2000
I own the entire Tyndale New Testament commentary series, and it is a great set of commentaries overall. I definitely recommend them as a first set of commentaries to own, but they are useful beyond the basics as well. The commentary on 1 Corinthians is no exception to to the high quality found in this whole series.
