Series Information
Chalice Commentaries for Today

Description: David Lull expands on the 1994 commentary on 1 Corinthians by noted scholar William A. Beardslee (1926-2001), which served as the model for the Chalice Commentaries for Today series. In the preface to his original commentary, Beardslee wrote that it was "written for the general reader, and with an eye to bringing this powerful letter into the life of faith and action that we live today." Lull's revision remains consistent with this mission by demonstrating how Christians can engage this ancient letter honestly and with respect for both Paul's world and today's world in dealing with issues in the church and society. Writing from the perspective of "process thought," Lull and Beardslee give a voice to the Corinthians-the other side of the conversation in Paul's letter-while also understanding the differences between first-century society and contemporary culture.

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