Synopses & Reviews
This volume presents in published form the detailed commentary work of E. Earle Ellis on Paul's first letter to the Corinthians. Ellis had, at the time of his death, been working for many years on a volume for the International Critical Commentary on the epistle. Having been unable to complete the volume before his passing, and having left instructions that it should not be completed, the present volume makes available his profound exegetical insights in the form of his completed commentary sections on 1 Corinthians, with minimal editorial intervention.
Specifically, readers will benefit from Ellis's detailed critical commentary on Corinthians chapters 1-13, with edited notes on chapter 14. An editorial essay provides a synthesis of Ellis's notes and thinking on chapters 15 and 16, and has been completed by the volume's editor Terry L. Wilder.
