The First Epistle to the Corinthians: Revised Edition
Fee, Gordon D.

Grand Rapids: Eerdmans, 2014 pp. lxii + 982. $65.00

Series Information
New International Commentary on the New Testament


Description: This landmark commentary, originally published in 1987, has been lauded as the best study available of Paul's theologically rich first letter to the Corinthians. Writing primarily for pastors, teachers, and students, Gordon Fee offers a readable exposition of 1 Corinthians that clearly describes the meaning of Paul's ideas and their larger theological relevance. Fee's revised edition is based on the improved, updated (2011) edition of the NIV, and it takes into account the considerable scholarship on 1 Corinthians over the past twenty-five years. Fee has also eliminated "chapter and verse" language ó totally foreign to Paul's first-century letter ó relegating the necessary numbers for "finding things" to parentheses.

Subjects: Bible, New Testament, Pauline Epistles, 1 Corinthians, Literature, Methods, Other Methods
