Paul's letters to the Christians in Corinth portray a young church struggling to live out the demands of the gospel amid the life of a thoroughly urban setting. In Reading Corinthians: A Literary and Theological Commentary, biblical scholar Charles Talbert helps his reader to grasp what was at stake in the conversations between Paul and the Corinthians. What we find there is not only a word for the struggling faithful in Corinth, but an always truthful word for the church today.
"Reading Corinthians makes an excellent companion for those who want to study in a thorough fashion one of the most revealing of Paul's letters." — The Bible Today
"This excellent piece of work should be of great value to undergraduates and seminarians as well as pastors and professors." — Religious Studies Review
"Talbert's successful experience as a teacher and pastor provides focus for his commentary so that he fulfills admirably the design of this volume, appealing to the nonspecialist, the informed lay person, the college or seminary student. To these audiences I would heartily recommend Reading Corinthians as a reliable guide to understanding Corinthians."— Catholic Biblical Quarterly
