This landmark commentary, originally published in 1987, has been lauded as the best study available of Paul's theologically rich first letter to the Corinthians. Writing primarily for pastors, teachers, and students, Gordon Fee offers a readable exposition of 1 Corinthians that clearly describes the meaning of Paul's ideas and their larger theological relevance. Fee's revised edition is based on the improved, updated (2011) edition of the NIV, and it takes into account the considerable scholarship on 1 Corinthians over the past twenty-five years. Fee has also eliminated "chapter and verse" language -- totally foreign to Paul's first-century letter -- relegating the necessary numbers for "finding things" to parentheses.… (more)

The New International Commentary on the New Testament (NICNT) is based on careful study of the Greek text and reflects serious work in technical areas -- such as linguistics, textual criticism and historical concerns. The NICNT series flourished under the editorship of several New Testament scholars -- first Ned Stonehouse (Westminster Theological Seminary), then F. F. Bruce (University of Manchester, England) and Gordon D. Fee (Regent College, Canada) and now Joel B. Green (Fuller Theological Seminary). Newer volumes in the NICNT account for emergent emphases in biblical studies and their theological significance for God's people.

Although this remains one of my favorite commentaries on 1 Corinthians, I was disappointed that the revised edition was not revised as much as one might expect. Occasionally, Fee interacts with a few commentaries that have been written since the first edition but not as extensively as seems appropriate, and some sections of the commentary show little awareness of later writings on those passages, except for an occasional bibliography. He makes no reference at all to significant writings on 1 Corinthians by authors such as Dale Martin, L.L. Welborn, Alexandra Brown, and others. However, it is still a very useful, readable, and persuasive commentary. ( )
