2012 Christianity Today Book Award winnerPaul was a Hebrew of the Hebrews, steeped in the learning of his people. But he was also a Roman citizen who widely traveled the Mediterranean basin, and was very knowledgeable of the dominant Greek and Roman culture of his day. These two mighty rivers of influence converge in Paul's first letter to the Corinthians.With razor-sharp attention to the text, Kenneth Bailey examines the cultural milieu and rhetorical strategies that shaped this pivotal epistle. He discovers the deep layers of the Hebraic prophetic tradition informing Paul's writing, linking the Apostle with the great prophets of the Old Testament.Throughout, Bailey employs his expert knowledge of Near Eastern and Mediterranean culture to deliver to readers a new understanding of Paul and his world. Familiar passages take on a new hue as they are stripped of standard Western interpretations and rendered back into their ancient setting.… (més)

Really good book that wasn't exactly what I expected. Thought it would be more about the culture of Corinth, and while that's an underlying part of the whole book, it isn't specifically referenced for every section of the book.

What is there is wonderful, however. The case the author makes for organizing the book really answers a lot of the tough questions the letter presents. The author unapologetic-ally references the difficult work of others who have translated the letter and has added a structure to their work that enhances the whole experience.

Recommended. ( )

After benefiting immensely from Jesus Through Middle Eastern Eyes, I knew I had to read Bailey’s book on 1 Corinthians. I was not disappointed. Bailey did what he does best: he uses his knowledge of Middle Eastern culture along with Coptic, Syriac and Arabic sources to inform his reading of the New Testament.

When you read 1 Corinthians, it’s easy to get the impression that Paul’s frustration with this particular congregation produced a letter that’s intensely situational, jumping from issue to issue. Structure seems to take a back seat to passion. It turns out nothing could be further from the truth.

The best part of this commentary is the way that Bailey discerned the structure of 1 Corinthians. It’s a carefully crafted five essay letter that uses Old Testament prophetic styles and templates. At the start of each section Bailey lays out the text structurally which helps the reader to see what Paul’s emphasizing.

I read through this commentary as I taught an informal Bible study at my church. It provided insight into the text along with pastoral considerations and illustrations to bring each passage alive. If you want to go further in 1 Corinthians, pick up Thiselton: either his comprehensive entry in the NIGTC series or the digest version: 1 Corinthians: A Shorter Exegetical and Pastoral Commentary.
