This landmark commentary, originally published in 1987, has been lauded as the best study available of Paul's theologically rich first letter to the Corinthians. Writing primarily for pastors, teachers, and students, Gordon Fee offers a readable exposition of 1 Corinthians that clearly describes the meaning of Paul’s ideas and their larger theological relevance.
Fee’s revised edition is based on the improved, updated 2011 edition of the NIV, and it takes into account the considerable scholarship on 1 Corinthians over the past twenty-five years. Fee has also eliminated “chapter and verse” language—totally foreign to Paul's first-century letter—relegating the necessary numbers for “finding things” to parentheses.
An impressively thorough commentary, which offers both judicious comment and useful documentation. . . . It deserves to rank as one of the leading commentaries on 1 Corinthians.
—Anthony C. Thieselton, professor of Christian theology, University of Nottingham
Fee has given us a paradigm of what a commentary should be. Even where one might disagree, no one — layperson, pastor, scholar, or student — will find Fee's volume a disappointment.
—Journal of the Evangelical Theological Society
This is an excellent commentary. Writing in the best tradition of evangelical scholarship, Fee has produced the most thorough interpretation of 1 Corinthians to have appeared in English in this generation.
—Journal of Biblical Literature
A model of how commentaries should be written. . . . Highly recommended.
