Leading Catholic scholar and Jesuit priest, this is Joseph A. Fitzmyer's latest contribution to the mammoth, Anchor Yale Bible Commentary Series (Formerly Anchor Bible Commentary). This series, employing scholars from around the world and from Jewish, Catholic and Protestant backgrounds, provides tools to make the Bible easily accessible to the modern reader through "exact translation and extended exposition". Furthermore this series, as a consortium of biblical knowledge, illuminates the ancient setting of specific biblical books, their transmission through history, as well as significant information on the linguistic issues faced by biblical interpreters.Fitzmyer's work, First Corinthians in many ways embodies the spirit and scope of this series by providing a section by section commentary on the entire book, an extensive introduction to the social, historical, textual, and theological issues surrounding First Corinthians which he describes as "the letter in the Pauline corpus which reveals the Apostle at his best".
