This careful, sometimes innovative, mid-level commentary touches on an astonishingly wide swath of important, sensitive issues—theological and pastoral—that have urgent resonances in twenty-first century life. Roy Ciampa and Brian Rosner reveal how 1 Corinthians directly addresses the claims of unity and truth, church discipline, sexual matters, the Lord’s Supper, the nature of love, Christian leadership, and many other significant topics. Those who preach and teach 1 Corinthians will be grateful to Ciampa and Rosner for years to come and scholars will be challenged to see this letter with fresh eyes.
