This volume traces the influences of first century Corinthian secular leadership on local church leadership as reflected in 1 Corinthians 1-6. It then shows how Paul modifies the Corinthian understanding of church leadership.
By comparing secular leadership in first century Corinthian society with leadership in the Corinthian church, it has been argued that one of Paul's major concerns with the church in Corinth is the extent to which significant members in the church were employing secular categories and perceptions of leadership in the Christian community.
This volume has adopted the method of assessing the New Testament evidence in the light of its social and historical background. Both literary and non-literary sources, rather than modern sociological models, were employed in making the comparison.

Review:

'..".sets a solid base for reading 1 Corinthians against its local social background.'
John Proctor, "Anvil, 1994.
'..".les rifirences accumulies par l'a. concernant Corinthe sont importantes et ouvrent d'intiressantes pistes de recherche.'
A. Rakotoharintsifa, "Etudes Theologiques et Religieuses, 1994.

Brian S. Rosner, "The Expository Times, 1994.
'..".well researched and detailed study...This books should serve as an exemplar in applying appropriate material for the understanding and interpretation of the text in question.'
David W.J. Gill, "J.T.S., 1994.
'..".from a methodological standpoint this is a very significant work, for it brings a much-needed element of realism to the discussion of the structure of the early church.'
John S. Kloppenborg.
'..".well-researched and detailed study...'
David W.J. Gill, "Journal of Theological Studies, 1994.

Victor Paul Furnish, "Journal of Biblical Literature, 1995.
'"In this work, Clarke gathers much useful information, particularly the epigraphic and numismatic evidence that is compiled in the appendix.'
Allen R. Hunt, "Religious Studies Review, 1995.
'"Clarke has produced a solid and helpful study that clarifies various conflictsbetween Paul and the Corinthians over church leadership.'
Jeffrey S. Siker, "The Catholic Biblical Quarterly, 1995.
