You Wretched Corinthians!

The church in Corinth was dear to Paul's heart, and he had a considerable correspondence with it. The twenty-nine chapters of I and II Corinthians are the most extensive collection of letters in the Bible, and are recognized by scholars to contain fragments of far more than just two letters. But they are only half the correspondence, and Paul often refers to information and remarks from the Corinthians which we no longer possess.
What was the Corinthian church like? Who were these Christians, and what did they think and feel? What were their problems, their hopes, their longings?
Hans Frör does not just leave us guessing. In an imaginative tour de force, and with a substantial cast of characters, he has recreated the church in Corinth, providing a series of letters which dovetail brilliantly with Paul's, so much so that Paul himself takes on new life.
