First Corinthians (Catholic Commentary on Sacred Scripture)by George T. Montague
In this addition to the Catholic Commentary on Sacred Scripture (CCSS), a seasoned scholar interprets First Corinthians for pastoral ministers and lay readers alike. The CCSS series, which will cover the entire New Testament, relates Scripture to life, is faithfully Catholic, and is supplemented by features designed to help readers understand the Bible more deeply and use it more effectively in teaching, preaching, evangelization, and other forms of ministry.
Praise for the CCSS
"A landmark achievement in theological interpretation of Scripture in and for the Church. Highly recommended for all!"--Michael J. Gorman, St. Mary's Seminary and University, Baltimore

This is my second of this series of Bible commentaries that I have read and will not be my last. I really like the "Reflection and Application" sections at the end of each section in the commentaries. And I like the sidebars for bringing in useful miscellaneous information. The author of this commentary seems a good fit with Paul - morally conservative, somewhat traditional, and charismatic. But whether or not the reader is, the book will be a treat if one is interested in Paul and/or the early Christian Church.
