Paperback

The cosmopolitan city of Corinth was the site of one of Paul's greatest evangelistic successes. Yet despite Paul's having founded the church there, it was full of contention and strife. Dissension ran the gamut from questions about leadership to incest. Some believers were taking fellow Christians to court. There were questions about marriage, celibacy, food offered to idols, public worship and spiritual gifts. In response Paul offered to them, and to us, some of his most profound thinking on the body of Christ, love, and the resurrection . Leon Morris, with his characteristic clarity and pastoral heart, sets the issues before us and offers perspectives on the letter's perennial relevance.

^This classic commentary has been completely retypeset and presented in a fresh, vibrant new large paperback format, with new global branding.

^^The Tyndale Bible Commentaries are designed to help the reader of the Bible understand what the text says and what it means. The Introduction to each book gives a concise but thorough treatment of its authorship, date, original setting and purpose. Following a structural Analysis, the Commentary takes the book section-by-section, drawing out its main themes, and also comments on individual verses and problems of interpretation. Additional Notes provide fuller discussion of particular difficulties. The aim throughout is to explain the true meaning of the Bible and make its message plain.

Great Overview of 1 Corinthians
4 stars By Angus, Jul 16 2016
This is a great book to start with if anyone wants a brief, broad understanding of the book of 1 Corinthians. Morris has the wonderful writing skill of being able to say a lot in few words, and so even though this volume is small compared to other commentaries it still packs a punch. He also has a clear, easy-to-understand style of writing, and is unlikely to go 'over the head' of the casual reader. Only gripe is that sometimes Morris is too brief, but this is the requirements of Tyndale's fault, not Morris'. Well worth a read!
