Pastor’s Bookshelf: 1 Corinthians

Pastor’s Bookshelf: 1 Corinthians May 13, 2009

Paul.jpg1 Corinthians doesn’t have as many good commentaries as does 2 Corinthians, but these are my top four picks:

I begin with Gordon Fee: The First Epistle to the Corinthians
.

Then I back up in time and read C.K. Barrett, whose skill in writing commentaries on Paul has no rival: The First Epistle to Corinthians
.

Then I read Ben Witheringon’s commentary: Conflict and Community in Corinth: A Socio-Rhetorical Commentary on 1 and 2 Corinthians
.

I finish off with Judith Kovacs, whose commentary reminds me of the Church’s interpretation (and I look forward to this series being completed): 1 Corinthians (The Church’s Bible)
.
