The World of 1 Corinthians : An Annotated Visual and Literary Source-Commentary
In The World of 1 Corinthians Matthew Malcolm aims to broaden our understanding of Paul's letter to the church in Corinth by allowing us to see it in its wider context of Greek and Roman culture and literature. 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.
