Product Description

Fully updated exegesis of 1 Corinthians

This award-winning commentary by Gordon Fee, originally published in 1987, has been lauded as the best study available of Paul's theologically rich first letter to the Corinthians.

Writing primarily for pastors, teachers, and students, Fee offers a readable exposition of 1 Corinthians that clearly describes the meaning of Paul's ideas and their larger theological relevance. More scholarly matters, including Fee's considerable interaction with other commentators, are found in the footnotes.

In this second edition, Fee has updated the text to make it even more accessible, including giving all biblical citations in full so that readers don't have to look up references. Fee also includes a full bibliography of everything written on 1 Corinthians up until 2011, providing a wide range of resources for further study.

Publisher's Description

This landmark commentary, originally published in 1987, has been lauded as the best study available of Paul's theologically rich first letter to the Corinthians. Writing primarily for pastors, teachers, and students, Gordon Fee offers a readable exposition of 1 Corinthians that clearly describes the meaning of Paul's ideas and their larger theological relevance.

Fee's revised edition is based on the improved, updated (2011) edition of the NIV, and it takes into account the considerable scholarship on 1 Corinthians over the past twenty-five years. Fee has also eliminated "chapter and verse" language -- totally foreign to Paul's first-century letter -- relegating the necessary numbers for "finding things" to parentheses.

Author Bio

Gordon D. Fee is professor emeritus of New Testament studies at Regent College, Vancouver, and general editor of the New International Commentary on the New Testament series.

Editorial Reviews

Journal of the Evangelical Theological Society
"Fee has given us a paradigm of what a commentary should be. Even where one might disagree, no one -- layperson, pastor, scholar, or student -- will find Fee's volume a disappointment."

Anthony C. Thiselton
--University of Nottingham
"An impressively thorough commentary, which offers both judicious comment and useful documentation. . . . It deserves to rank as one of the leading commentaries on 1 Corinthians."

Journal of Biblical Literature
"This is an excellent commentary. Writing in the best tradition of evangelical scholarship, Fee has produced the most thorough interpretation of 1 Corinthians to have appeared in English in this generation."

Bibliotheca Sacra
"A model of how commentaries should be written. . . . Highly recommended."

Spirit & Life
"This authoritative commentary on 1 Corinthians is clearly one of the best."

    If you are looking through and evangelical commentary on the Epistles of 1st and 2nd Thessalonians, the New International Commentary on New Testaments (NICNT) volume on 1st and 2nd Thessalonians by Gordon D. Fee, is your best pick. 1st and 2nd Thessalonians, is published by Eerdmans, is part of NICNT a series which is synonymous with excellent exegesis and superior application, this volume continues the long legacy. This volume is one of the most articulate and practical modern commentaries on these epistles of Paul. Fee is no stranger to Biblical commentaries, nor is he a stranger to this series, having served as its general editor from 1990-2011.

    1st and 2nd Thessalonians, begins with the typical study into the introductory matters of this book of the Bible, yet while introductions are common, is atypical for Fee is so through with his research and interaction with recent scholarship. In a day where these matters are either glossed over to get to the exegesis of the text or are so cumbersome that they become useless, Fee found a good balance in being thorough, communicating depth and attention to recent scholarship, without losing the message of the text.

    With reference to the commentary sections on these epistles, Fee, expertly navigates the text showing the original context of passage while applying it directly to the modern day reader. He also uses a pastoral tone in many of his comments yet never sacrifices his scholastic approach. The outlines that he provides are also of great use for a pastor looking to preach though the epistles of 1st and 2nd Thessalonians exegetically.

    In recommending , 1st and 2nd Thessalonians, to others I would whole heartily recommend this commentary to students of scripture, with one caveat. By this I mean I recommend this work to Pastors, Bible Teachers, Bible College Students, and to a limited extent educated Laymen looking to teach a Sunday school class, there is enough scholarly weight to this work to understand a particular issue in the text while giving aid to pastors in preaching the text. There are many commentaries about 1st and 2nd Thessalonians available at this moment but, 1st and 2nd Thessalonians, of the NICNT series is a giant leap above the rest.

    This book was provided to me free of charge from Eerdmans in exchange for an unbiased, honest review.

    Forty years ago, my friends and I surmised that the term "Pentecostal Scholar" might be an oxymoron. Then came Fee. He is always worth hearing. He loves Paul as few that I have read. This updated and reconfigured edition of 1 Corinthians is a gift to the church.

    The commentary by Thiselton is almost a genre of it's own. It is a monument to 1 Corinthians. Fee pursues a different path. He thinks and writes with a clarity and vitality that gives the impression that he was there when it all happened. His is a rare combination of skill and passion.

    So, as age takes it's toll on this gifted man, I want to thank him for all he has done and encourage others to experience him for themselves. This is a great commentary.
