The First Epistle to the Corinthians by New Testament scholar Gordon D. Fee brings his years of exegetical skill and expertise in textual criticism to bear on the first letter of Paul to the church at Corinth. It was written to replace the 1953 New International Commentary on the New Testament (NICNT) volume on 1 Corinthians written by F.W. Grosheide, and answers some of questions and problems which have emerged since then in the interpretation of 1 Corinthians. Fee tries to place each section of the epistle in the overall development of the letter and its argument. Thus, he looks at 1 Corinthians in the context of the epistolary exchanges between Paul and the city of Corinth, focusing on the historical, cultural, and social settings. He offers insight on the possible presuppositions held by the Corinthians which shaped the letter, and argues that is must be viewed first and foremost as a letter from the apostle to a beloved church. If it is seen as a manual of church order, or a directory of public worship, or even a digest of canon law, its true message and implications will be missed.

Gordon D. Fee
. . . undertaken to provide earnest students of the New Testament with an exposition that is thorough and abreast of modern scholarship and at the same time loyal to the Scriptures as the infallible Word of God. This statement reflects the underlying purpose of The New International Commentary on the New Testament. Begun in the late 1940s by an international team of New Testament scholars, the NICNT series has become recognized by pastors, students, and scholars alike as a critical yet orthodox commentary marked by solid biblical scholarship within the evangelical Protestant tradition.

While based on a thorough study of the Greek text, the commentary introductions and expositions contain a minimum of Greek references. The NICNT authors evaluate significant textual problems and take into account the most important exegetical literature. More technical aspects — such as grammatical, textual, and historical problems — are dealt with in footnotes, special notes, and appendixes.

Under the general editorship of three outstanding New Testament scholars — first Ned Stonehouse (Westminster Theological Seminary, Philadelphia), then F. F. Bruce (University of Manchester, England), and now Gordon D. Fee (Regent College, Vancouver, British Columbia) — the NICNT series has continued to develop over the years. In order to keep the commentary new and conversant with contemporary scholarship, the NICNT volumes have been — and will be — revised or replaced as necessary.

The newer NICNT volumes in particular take into account the role of recent rhetorical and sociological inquiry in elucidating the meaning of the text, and they also exhibit concern for the theology and application of the text. As the NICNT series is ever brought up to date, it will continue to find ongoing usefulness as an established guide to the New Testament text.

PURPOSE of Dreams and Visions (from Roger)
The purpose and intent of this book is actually very simple. It is to perhaps convince a few more people to follow the living Prophet a little more closely, and to prepare themselves and their families for the events which lie in the (near?) future by preparing Spiritually (getting temple recommends and using them often), Physically (obtain a minimum one year supply of food, clothing, shelter and other necessities), and Mentally. And as part of this preparation to perhaps come to understand some of the events that they will likely have to pass through. Elder Oaks recently in the April 2004 General Conference encouraged all members of the Church throughout the world to "accelerate our own preparation and try to influence the preparation of those around us." This is a small effort to comply with that counsel.
