Description: In this addition to the well-received Paideia series, a respected New Testament scholar examines cultural context and theological meaning in First Corinthians. Paideia commentaries explore how New Testament texts form Christian readers by
attending to the ancient narrative and rhetorical strategies the text employs
showing how the text shapes theological convictions and moral habits
commenting on the final, canonical form of each New Testament book
focusing on the cultural, literary, and theological settings of the text
making judicious use of maps, photos, and sidebars in a reader-friendly format
Students, pastors, and other readers will appreciate the historical, literary, and theological insight Pheme Perkins offers in interpreting First Corinthians.
