Walter Moberly - Durham University "Lucidly, accessibly, and engagingly, Thiselton brings alive the subject matter about which St. Paul writes. Thus, this commentary searchingly illuminates the nature of Christian lifestyle and spirituality today." Craig L. Blomberg - Denver Seminary "In his 1400-page NIGTC volume on 1 Corinthians, Anthony Thiselton explained that he addressed every legitimate question he could think of that someone might ask of the text! The result was a masterpiece, but one that few readers will ever fully scrutinize. In a new labor of love, Thiselton has now created this marvelous digest, at the same time interacting with the newest round of research, adding applicational gems into his exegesis, and inserting thoughtful questions for reflection and implementation at the end of each section. This will immediately become the main text for my English Bible 1 Corinthians elective." Review of Biblical Literature "This is a superb pastoral commentary. It is one that a pastor could use for exegetical as well as pastoral information within a sermon... This commentary provides a good model of exegetical and pastoral writing and is well worth having on the shelf of anyone working in ministry."

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.
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.
