What Are People Saying about this Title?
"George Montague's First Letter to the Corinthiansis a great addition to the Catholic Commentary on Sacred Scripture. Of all Paul's letters, First Corinthians is the one that enables us to see the reality of a first-century Christian community and read Paul's reflections thereon. Drawing from what Paul wrote, Montague shows the continuity between the Church of God at Corinth and the Catholic Church of the twenty-first century. It is as insightful about the one as it is the other."-Raymond F. Collins, visiting scholar, Brown University.
