I am grateful for his description of a church fragmenting in confusion, and how the Gospel Paul preaches can heal it!
As with Keener, BWIII is at his best when developing a picture of social life in the 1st Century Roman Empire. He does engage with the Greek often but if you are someone whom is a Greek 'nut' then you may be better off picking up Thistleton. I have to say though that if you are seriously studying 1 Corinthians be sure to purchase Fee, BWIII, Thistleton, and Garland. Those are my top four on this book in no particular order.
I also find that you will often get a different opinion on many passages throughout the NT in BWIII's numerous titles under the banner of 'Socio-Rhetorical'. This is welcomed as too many scholars today are not adding anything of value to discussions.
Witherington's commentaries are academic but understandable to even a serious laymen, but they are especially useful to pastors and theologians -- people who want to get into the meaning of the text at a deeper level.
