For nearly forty years, Stanley B. Marrow, SJ, taught New Testament at Weston Jesuit School of Theology in Cambridge, Massachusetts. An eloquent and outstanding pedagogue, he had a great love for 1 Corinthians. He would capture students' attention, when introducing the letter, by saying there is no problem or issue in the church today that did not exist in some form in Corinth in the middle of the first century, CE. This book is Fr. Marrow's interpretation of 1 Corinthians, the distillation of years of study, reflection, and prayer over the text. Readers will experience what Fr. Marrow's students did over the years a passionate and challenging reading of the apostle Paul calling, as pastor, the church in Corinth to holiness."
