Winner of the 2004 Christianity Today Award of Merit in the Biblical Studies category! Rich in implications for congregational life and practice, 1 Corinthians remains among Paul's most important and controversial epistles. Garland's accessible new volume in the preacher-friendly Baker Exegetical Commentary offers verse-by-verse insight into this complex book. Combining careful research with an able grasp of the issues confronting Paul's Greco-Roman readers, Garland interacts with other commentators and includes extensive notes.

Review 1 for 1 Corinthians: Baker Exegetical Commentary on the New Testament [BECNT]
Date:June 4, 2009
I read 4-5 popular scholarly commentaries on the tough passages in 1 Corinthians. I felt Baker was the best. Garland had scholarly detail but was easy enough to understand. He gave good balance to other views, but I felt his views made the most sense. I would highly recommend this commentary.
