Bridging the Greek text and the contemporary NIV, Gary Shogren presents valuable exegetical thought to this practical, pastoral commentary. A missionary to Costa Rica for the past decade, Shogren uniquely combines sensible application to ministry with multilingual scholarship. Addressing Paul’s largest epistle with an indispensable understanding of its culture and history and a personal love for God’s Word, First Corinthians: An Exegetical-Pastoral Commentary is a powerful study tool to aid you in understanding and using Paul’s famous pastoral epistle.

In the Logos version, you will have the unique ability to cross-reference this volume with other commentaries on 1 Corinthians, comparing Shogren’s research and scholarship with that of other commentators, both contemporary and classic.

    I have been preaching through 1 Corinthians over the past few years. In preparation for each sermon I have been reading the commentaries on 1 Corinthians put out by Fee, Garland, Hodge, Calvin, Wright, Thiselton, Witherington, Ciampa and Rosner, Morris, and Carson ("The Cross and Christian Ministry" and "Showing the Spirit"). Shogren's commentary is tied with Fee and Garland's commentaries as the most helpful out of the bunch. His commentary has proved to be the most helpful pastorally. After studying each individual passage at length before consulting commentaries, I generally find myself reading Shogren's commentary first and then reviewing it last because it has been the most helpful for me as a pastor. This is not to say that Shogren's commentary lacks the technical precision that the other commentaries provide. He certainly does deal adequately with those grammatical and cultural matters which directly have to do with the text. However, Shogren's commentary has proved to be the most beneficial as both a resource which informs the head and yet aims at feeding the soul. I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to both grow in a knowledge of the contents of 1 Corinthians and to be personally challenged, rebuked, and encouraged by it.
