This is the author's second commentary in the last decade on 1 Corinthians, the first being 1100 pages longer! If you want and have time to work through a masterful commentary (and likely the new standard for scholars), the longer NIGCT is the one to go with. If on the other hand 300+ pages is enough for you (and it should be for most, as well-presented as it is here), then this "shorter" treatment should suffice. More pastoral in its application than the larger volume.

I'm a professor/musician at an evangelical university. I've read his 1400 page commentary (yes! even though I don't know Greek) as well as this shorter, yet distinctive version of around 250 pages. Both are unique, different. Both represent a tremendous effort.

I've spent many, many hours with Thiselton. My understanding has grown immeasurably, thanks to this dedicated, gifted evangelical scholar. I feel that I've gotten to know him. He's exceptionally good with language, and in communicating the finest distinctions of meaning, as well as the important broader themes and emphases in I Cor.

It interesting that quotation marks (" ) do not occur in the original Greek. However, in I Cor ch 8 (and other places) Thiselton's use of quotation marks results in insightful interpretations. I note that the ESV version (and the more recent translations) now employ the same technique.

About 6-8 of us guys have been having a home bible study together for 18 years, meeting every 2nd and 4th tuesday. We study one chapter of the bible per meeting, and we're continuing with chapter 8 of I Cor in two weeks. I put up Thiselton's unique translation on my TV screen (via my MAC) for us all to consider (one of my contributions). The guys really appreciate the perspective the translation offers. A lot of animated, lively discussion ensues. Thank you Anthony! You're efforts are reaching a bunch of guys in California.

This commentary is one of the best I've seen on any book of the Bible. Thistleton gives great background to unpack the context of the Corinthian church. Makes the text come alive. Probably the best part of his approach in this commentary is the follow up questions at the end of each section.
I found myself reading these questions first then going back to do the reading/research. I'd highly recommend this commentary to anyone who is planning on teaching/studying this letter from Paul any time soon.
