Overview

1 Corinthians: Baker Exegetical Commentary on the New Testament

Paul's first letter to the Corinthians is one of the most important epistles in the New Testament. David Garland's thoughtful new commentary draws on extensive research and engages the best of contemporary scholarship while providing a readable study that will be accessible to thoughtful readers as well as students, pastors, and scholars. After considering the context of the letter and the social and cultural setting of Corinth, Garland turns to his exegetical work. An introduction to each major unit of thought is followed by the author's own translation of the Greek text. In the course of his verse-by-verse commentary, he incorporates references to other ancient writings that help explain particular aspects of Paul's meaning or provide information on the social and cultural context. He also refers to the work of other commentators and provides extensive notes for further reading and research.

Dr. Garland has completed a massive volume on 1 Corinthians. He is a notable scholar who has written major works on other NT books (including Mark, 2 Corinthians, Philemon/Colossians), and he is currently the editor of a new version of Expositor's Bible Commentary. Dr. Garland was one of my professor's in seminary, and we had an opportunity to work with this volume before its publication. I found the commentary highly exhaustive in its scope and helpfully straightforward. I would highly recommend it.
