About-

The World of 1 Corinthians is an exegetical resource, providing annotated citations of ancient literature and visual depictions that illuminate the situations, themes, terminology and arrangement of the letter. The book follows the text of 1 Corinthians in a fresh translation, with annotated citations and pictures throughout the text. The book will be used to complement conventional commentaries. Essential to the task of interpreting an ancient text is recognition of that text's historical origins. This book aims to help those who are separated from Paul and his Corinthian audience by 2,000 years toward an increased appreciation of their world.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"Dr. Matthew Malcolm has an accurate and perceptive understanding of 1 Corinthians, of its Greek text, and of ancient Corinth. I commend this book without reserve. Malcolm has chosen relevant and helpful quotations from various Greek and Roman authors, which usefully illustrate the text of the epistle and the culture of Corinth. His use of Old Testament citations and those from Jewish literature is also masterly. His familiarity with the site of the ancient city illuminates the epistle, and his pictures of this and other sites are well chosen. This is a sane, yet learned, volume, full of help, with an equally strong grasp of the theology of the epistle."
--Professor Anthony C. Thiselton, Professor of Christian Theology, University of Nottingham.

"Matthew Malcolm presents a unique commentary on 1 Corinthians. Rather than systematically analysing the biblical text, he focuses on explaining the cultural and historical background to Paul's letter. He includes his own comments, extensive quotations from ancient writers, and numerous photographs. This commentary will make a valuable addition to the library of any pastor, student or scholar as it presents a perspective on 1 Corinthians that is seldom found in standard commentaries."
--Evelyn Ashley, Lecturer in New Testament, Vose Seminary, Perth, Western Australia
