I am a huge fan of the Apostle Paul. Not only does his life fascinate me, but I always find myself inspired by his teachings to the early Church. Love one another. Don’t be divisive. Be careful how you live. I can relate to so many of the struggles Christians went through nearly 2,000 years ago, and I’m grateful for Paul’s words that continually point me towards Christ, even in today’s very different times.
That’s why I’m excited about our newest Pillar New Testament Commentary offering. Pillar New Testament Commentary: The First Letter to the Corinthians has been on Pre-Pub for a while now and it’s getting ready to ship!
Noted theologians Brian S. Rosner and Roy E. Ciampa thoroughly unpack this New Testament epistle, basing their exposition on the Greek New Testament. They are deeply committed to a fresh wrestling with the text, using every means at their disposal to “loosen the Bible from its pages” to help readers understand what the text says and how to apply it to life today. Yet, the scholarship does not undermine the accessibility of this volume.
D. A. Carson—professor, theologian, and author/editor of more than 45 resources—wrote the preface to this commentary. In it, he says:
“Those with the responsibility to preach and teach 1 Corinthians will be grateful for this commentary for a long time, while more advanced students of the New Testament will learn some new things and be challenged to think through this epistle with fresh eyes. It is a pleasure to commend this work.”
There’s no doubt about it: the first book of Corinthians is rich with theology and early Church history, and the Pillar New Testament Commentary: The First Letter to the Corinthians does a great job of illuminating the text. Here’s the good news: if you act now, you can still take advantage of our Pre-Pub pricing. It’s not too late to pick this up before it ships.
While you’re at it, if you haven’t already, check out the other Pillar New Testament commentaries available from Logos.
