With keen sensitivity, Marion L. Soards helps readers span the gap between one of the earliest Christian communities with its concerns over Wisdom, in-groups and out-groups, manifestations of the Holy Spirit, Christian behavior, and the resurrection of Christ and the Christian of today. He presents Paul s apocalyptic-eschatological outlook as perhaps a key to unlocking some of the more knotty passages in 1 Corinthians and helps readers realize the nature of that radical theological worldview.Soards' commentary is a clear, up-to-date, balanced, religiously sensitive treatment of 1 Corinthians. Aimed at the general reader, it will find a welcome home in college and seminary classrooms and in the pastor's study. Charles H. Talbert, Baylor UniversityThis commentary is solid but readable, welcoming yet challenging. It focuses attention on the biblical text rather than on scholarship about the text. This commentary should be the first one students read when studying 1 Corinthians. Alan Culpepper, McAfee School of Theology, Mercer University

From the Back Cover:

Expert help for understanding the Bible

Each volume in the Understanding the Bible Commentary Series breaks down the barriers between the ancient and modern worlds so that the power and meaning of the biblical texts become transparent to contemporary readers. They present a careful section-by-section exposition of the biblical books with key terms and phrases highlighted and all Greek transliterated. Notes at the close of each chapter provide additional textual and technical comments for those who want to dig deeper. A bibliography as well as Scripture and subject indexes are also included. Pastors, students, and Bible teachers will find in this series a commitment to accessibility without sacrificing serious scholarship.

1 Corinthians is a clear, up-to-date, and thoroughly understandable treatment of Paul's letter to the church at Corinth, focusing attention on what the text actually means rather than scholarship about the text. It addresses many relevant issues, like sexual immorality, religious diversity, and the false teaching among leaders in Corinth. It also sheds light on how that culture affected the early church, revealing how many of those persistent problems are still faced by Christians in the world today.

Marion L. Soards is professor of New Testament studies at Louisville Presbyterian Theological Seminary. He is active in a number of scholarly societies and associations, has published dozens of articles and reviews in leading theological dictionaries and pro¬fessional journals worldwide, and is the author of more than twenty books.
