New in the Eerdmans Classic Biblical Commentaries collection

This classic commentary by F. W. Grosheide on 1 Corinthians unpacks Paul’s letter to the first-century Corinthian church and applies his teachings to our own situation with vigor and understanding. The volume throughout exhibits Grosheide’s fairness to the views of others and his single-mindedness to expound fully the inspired text.

Originally published in 1953 as part of the New International Commentary on the New Testament series, Grosheide’s Commentary on the First Epistle to the Corinthians in this new format will continue helping pastors, teachers, students, and other Bible readers grasp the aim and major themes of Paul’s first Corinthian letter.
