Review of the hardback: 'This monograph is beautifully written. Margaret M. Mitchell builds upon her own extensive - indeed, famous studies of the Corinthian correspondence in creating a masterpiece. This remarkable tour de force is the most interesting book I have read on the New Testament for several years and I recommend it without qualification.' Iain Torrance, Princeton Theological Seminary
Review of the hardback: 'The charm of this book ... lies in the sense of freshness and urgency which it imparts ... I loved reading [it], and it has refreshed and enlivened the way I read Paul.' Catherine Conybeare, Bryn Mawr Classical Review
'... an important contribution to each of the discourses on which i touches. ... One rarely encounters works that encompass so much insight in so few pages, in such well-composed prose ...' Review of Biblical Literature
This book shows how in the Corinthian letters Paul was fashioning the principles that later authors would use to interpret scripture. This engagingly written demonstration of the hermeneutical impact of Paul's correspondence on early Christian exegetes also illustrates a new way to think about the history of reception of biblical texts.
