The Corinthian Correspondence
Ministering in the Best and Worst of Times
Imprint: Wipf and Stock
"Doohan brings to life the culture and turmoil of Corinth and shows Paul working with his tumultuous congregation--and learning and growing."
--Rosemary Haughton, author; theologian; Wellspring House, Gloucester, Massachusetts
"Helen Doohan's study of 1 and 2 Corinthians combines an expert's knowledge of Paul and early Christianity, wisdom and judgment in interpretation, and pastoral sensitivity to situations today."
--Eugene LaVerdiere, SSS, Senior Editor, Emmanual Magazine
"This masterly book broadens the definitions of ministry. . . . Helen and clearly written, this book takes the reader through the geographical, historical and social background that is necessary to read the letter of Paul to the Corinthians intelligently."
--Monika K. Hellwig, LLB, PhD, Landegger Professor of Theology, Georgetown University
"This walk with Paul through a ministerial relationship that he found so exciting at times and so bewildering at other times helps us today in our ministerial excitement and bewilderment."
--Kenan B. Osborne, OFM, Franciscan School of Theology, Berkeley, California
"Doohan's book will be welcome in ministry training programs, adult religious education settings, and small faith communities."
--Evelyn Eaton and James Whitehead, Whitehead Associates, Consultants in Education and Ministry
"This book, with its probing and insightful questions for discussion, could serve as the basis for an adult education series on Paul, a parish renewal series, as well as a classroom text."
--Frank J. Matera, Professor of New Testament, The Catholic University of America, Washington, DC
