Editorial Reviews

Review

Clear, reasonable, understandable, devout-all things and more can be honestly said about this generation's greatest single-author pastoral commentary set. The MacArthur New Testament Commentary series is a help to Christians and preachers. Forged in the study, fired in the pulpit, these comments on the whole New Testament are a gift from one who loves Christ, given to Christ's bride, the church.
-Mark Denver, pastor, Capitol Hill Baptist Church, Washington, D.C.

Dr. MacArthur's love for the Scripture and his many years of diligent study have resulted in a resource that is a great gift to the Body of Christ. I have found this tool to be a great help as I study the Word and teach it to women. I often refer to this set of commentaries to enhance my understanding of the text and to shed light on difficult passages and questions.
-Nancy Leigh DeMoss, author, Revive our Hearts radio teacher

John MacArthur has provided a compelling example of pastoral ministry based on the Word of God. Now the fruit of that ministry is available to us all: careful attention to the text of Scripture and faithful theological exposition, all in the service of the church of Jesus Christ. Both pastor and layperson will benefit for years to come from this unique commentary series.
-C.J. Mahaney, president of Sovereign Grace Ministries

The MacArthur New Testament Commentary is nothing less than a library of faithful exegesis and exposition. This project is unparalleled in our times, and John MacArthur has produced a masterful commentary series that demands attention and deserves a place in every preacher's library.
-R. Albert Mohler, Jr., PhD, president of The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Louisville, KY

From the Inside Flap

1 Corinthians

The church at Corinth was a church with problems, not unlike the problems many churches face today.  These issues included worldliness, spiritual disunity, sexual sin, and questions about marriage and divorce, the role of women, and spiritual gifts.  Pastors and laypeople alike will benefit greatly as they explore the real-life richness of this epistle.

Join John MacArthur as he explains each verse in a way that is both doctrinally precise and intensely practical.

The MacArthur New Testament Commentary series comes from the experience, wisdom, and insight of one of the most trusted ministry leaders and Bible scholars of our day.  Each volume was written to be as comprehensive and accurate as possible, dealing thoroughly with every key phrase and word in the Scripture without being unnecessarily technical.  This commentary will help to give a better, fuller, richer understanding of God's Word, while challenging the reader to a vibrant personal spiritual walk.

I highly recommend for personal study.

Then, again, it is good to read the thoughts of sound thinking evangelicals-- even when they disagree with you on peripheral issues.

The work is thorough, and probably my favorite all-around commentary on I Corinthians.

Yes! A very insighful work that does not shy away from the tough issue presented in 1 Corinthians (people following men instead of God, sleeping around in the church, slander and gossip and jealousies, coveting...).
The only part of this work I had any trouble with was the cessionaist approach MacArthur takes towards the gifts of the Spirit (12-14). Then, again, it is good to read the thoughts of sound thinking evangelicals-- even when they disagree with you on peripheral issues.
Perhaps the best aspect of this work is that... anytime MacArthur writes, you know he has thought and prayed through his position. And, he will not write something unless he can defend it from the Scriptures. This is helpful when you are unsure about some issue (divorce and remarriage, for instance, and presented in 1 Corinthians 7 f.), and it is honest even when you disagree.
I've read a few in the series of commentaries he offers. I would not buy the entire set (of any set of commentaries, really, because some are outstanding and others fall a bit short). This is one I would definitely grab hold of, if you can fork out the [money] for it.

As a pastor of 22 years, I highly recommend this commentary. MacArthur is noted to take interpretation seriously, but does not stop there: he also adds illustration and application.

Many commentaries sidestep difficult passages, intimidating one from asking the hard questions as though one were foolish to do so; MacArthur does nothing of the kind, but tackles the Scriptures head on, asks the difficult questions, and presents what he considers the best solution. In essence, his "no nonsense, ingorance is not bliss" personality is reflected in his writings. He is neither mindless nor beyond comprehension.

The work is thorough, and probably my favorite all-around commentary on I Corinthians. It is both practical and scholarly, yet readable and understandable by the serious layman. It is written by a pastor who is also a thinker governed by good hermeneutics. His perspective is conservative, evangelical, dispensational, and non-charismatic. You may not agree with every one of his interpretations, but you will respect the logical approach that went behind them. Top notch.

I have been a student of the scriptures for many years and I have read many, many commentaries. But I have to say that MacArthur's work stands out from among the rest. In a scholarly, yet easily understandable style, MacArthur brilliantly exegites one of Paul's greatest letters. But MacArthur's true gift is that he is able to explain how Paul's writings to the ancient Corinthians apply to us today. Nothing short of amazing! Highly recommended! Get the book!

First Corinthians gives good insights into the thinking of the Apostle Paul. Those who have not read First Corinthians in depth
this is a good place to start.

MacArthur is thorough and intelligent. I love the way he makes his case and gets you thinking through an idea. I've only started this and am just a few chapters in, so that said, I feel there are some things he spends a little too much time that don't need that level of coverage. He makes the point, move on. But overall, I enjoy reading his work and I always get something out of every chapter.
