First Corinthians is Paul's masterly pastoral letter to a church, which he founded five years earlier, but which in the meantime has lost its way. In Ephesus Paul was visited by various groups from Corinth bringing disturbing reports of recent developments, but also a list of questions. A little sleuthing helps us recover an idea of the problems in Corinth as well as the questions to which they wanted answers.
Paul Barnett is retired Bishop of North Sydney and Honorary Visiting Fellow in Ancient History at Macquarie University, Sydney. He is also a Teaching Fellow at Regent College, Vancouver and a visiting faculty member at Moore Theological College, Sydney.
"A scholar's eye for background detail, a preacher's careful attention to meaning, a pastor's application to the challenges of our contemporary context. All three combine in this clear-minded and warm-hearted exposition of 1st Corinthians, to make Paul's great letter come alive with sparkling insights and pressing relevance."
