Today’s Off the Shelf selection features reflections from Gordon D. Fee on his universally acclaimed commentary The First Letter to the Corinthians (NICNT). Fee served as the editor for the NICNT series from 1990 to 2012. In addition to his volume on Corinthians, Fee also authored Paul’s Letter to the Philippians (NICNT) and The First and Second Letters to the Thessalonians (NICNT).
