MEDIA REVIEWS

Bailey shows the relevance of prophetic and rabbinic forms of language, uses Arabic, Coptic and Syriac sources, and rightly stresses the coherence of this epistle and its theology of the cross. He is alert to intertextual resonances, and offers distinctive ideas. I warmly commend this work. - Anthony C. Thiselton, University of Nottingham

Ken Bailey is pure gold. No writer I can think of has been a greater help for teaching the Scriptures with freshness and clarity. What a gift to have his insights on Paul. - John Ortberg, Menlo Park Presbyterian Church

As he works through the letter Bailey, drawing on neglected Syriac commentaries and his Middle Eastern experiences, presents a gem laden exposition of 1 Corinthians that engages topics of Christian unity, the cross, living in a pagan culture, men and women in worship, and the resurrection. This is a study on 1 Corinthians like none other I have seen. - Michael F. Bird, Crossway College, Australia
