Series by cover

Keener has a full grasp of the Corinthian church. He makes use of multiple sources as well as the Greek to develop a clear understanding of not only who Paul was, but why he wrote to the Corinthians. A fantastic book to complement this work it is more difficult to read Is "Christianity at Corinth: The Quest for the Pauline Church".

One person found this helpful. Face it, every pastor and scholar has a certain number of volumes that occupy shelf space merely because of the popularity of the author or Written by one who is an acknowledged expert in Biblical and extra-Biblical documents of the New Testament period, the reader is continuously afforded insights into the world and sensibility of the Apostle Paul, the Corinthian believers, and the larger culture into which these two letters were first released.

Unimpeachable in his high view of Scripture and its trustworthiness, yet fully aware of the works of others who hold the Bible in less esteem , Dr.

Keener patiently leads the reader in examining the text to hear its voice with something amazingly approaching the comprehension of its original first century audience. No scholar will regret the purchase of this tidy, vibrant study of these two important Pauline epistles; no student will be overwhelmed by needlessly technical language.

Keener is a "past master" at conveying complex concepts in remarkably accessible terms. This book plays well in both an academic setting and the serious Bible student's favorite reading spot.

Keener's contribution to our understanding of the ethical, moral, and theological issues addressed in Paul's two letters to the Corinthians is an excellent acquisition for any honest learner and lover of the Biblical text. This is a book you'll find yourself revisiting everytime you want a fresh look at the Corinthian letters. Craig Keener is a prolific evangelical writer, and his commentaries are sometimes considered classics. But one of his weaknesses is that he sometimes focus too much on the cultural and social setting of the text and he forgets to expound what the text is actually saying.

In a commentary that is this short, I was hoping for an exposition that quickly gets to the heart of what the text is saying, especially because Keener is preparing a much larger work on these epistles, and so I figured he could whittle that down into a compelling, digestible format. But such is not the case.

Again, Craig falls into the habit of giving us circumstantial information and not enough exposition of the actual text. It is telling when the most brilliant exposition in the book 1 Corinthians 6: Actually, the 2 Corinthians portion of this book has more compelling exposition than 1 Corinthians, in my opinion. I like this New Cambridge commentary series because some of the volumes do a great job of exposing the text's meaning without a lot of verbiage Witherington on Revelation and Arnold on Genesis, for example. But this one will leave you hungering for more.

Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. A little hard to follow, in my opinion. In terms of commentary worth, this work should only get 3 stars, maybe even 2 I briefly explain why below. But I give it 4 stars because the commentary's greatest weakness is also interestingly its greatest strength. No other commentary that I have read though I have not read them all yet provides as much stimulating "parallels" or citations of ancient literature for issues addressed in 1 Corinthians.

It is hard to assess precisely what you have gained from these parallels, though, other than stimulation.

Essentially, the greatest contribution of this work is not its reading of the text which is nonexistent is this work but the options it presents for reading the text. Rarely does Keener seem to shine through; his own views presented to the reader. Rather, like a buffet plate, an array of options are presented to the reader with Keener simply as the butler.

I assume that Keener's hopefully still forthcoming commentary on 1 Corinthians will be more decisive in its judgements. Unfortunately, given his track record, as well as the trajectory taken in this book, I highly doubt that it will take first place among the commentaries, though it will surely take its place immediately as one of the standards.

In some cases, as with Chronicles of Narnia , disagreements about order necessitate the creation of more than one series. If the series has an order, add a number or other descriptor in parenthesis after the series title eg. By default, it sorts by the number, or alphabetically if there is no number. If you want to force a particular order, use the character to divide the number and the descriptor. So, " 0 prequel " sorts by 0 under the label "prequel. Series was designed to cover groups of books generally understood as such see Wikipedia: Like many concepts in the book world, "series" is a somewhat fluid and contested notion.

A good rule of thumb is that series have a conventional name and are intentional creations , on the part of the author or publisher. For now, avoid forcing the issue with mere "lists" of works possessing an arbitrary shared characteristic, such as relating to a particular place.


  • The Iranian Plot;
  • David vs. Goliath: 9/11 and Other Tragedies.
  • The Vest Pocket Guide to Information Technology.

Avoid series that cross authors, unless the authors were or became aware of the series identification eg. Also avoid publisher series, unless the publisher has a true monopoly over the "works" in question. So, the Dummies guides are a series of works.
