Like its predecessor, Reading Luke, this commentary on the First and Second Letters to the Corinthians is designed for the non-specialist: the informed lay person, the college or seminary student, the pastor or lay minister. Talbert finds two things at the heart of the Corinthian letters that demand attention: what is said and how it is said, or the literary method and the theological perspective

Reading the Sermon on the mount : character formation and decision making in Matthew 5-7 by Charles H Talbert( Book )

12 editions published between 2004 and 2006 in English and Undetermined and held by 417 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Reading the Sermon on the Mount, Charles H. Talbert explores the religious message put forth in the first large teaching section of the Gospel according to Matthew and finds it to have a relevance often overlooked in academic studies. Seeking to hear and understand the text of Matthew 5-7 as someone living in the Mediterranean about 100 C.E. would have encountered it, Talbert argues for a broader interpretation of the Sermon than scholars typically advance. He suggests that the Sermon cannot be reduced to a discussion of ethics but includes considerations of piety. He contends that it is a text about covenant fidelity to God and to other humans, in which Jesus seeks to affect perceptions, dispositions, and intentions. The text thus functions primarily as a catalyst for character formation rather than as a compendium of obligations."--BOOK JACKET

Matthew by Charles H Talbert( Book )

8 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 360 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A leading New Testament scholar examines cultural context and theological meaning in Matthew. This commentary approaches each text in its final, canonical form, proceeding by sense units rather than word-by-word or verse-by-verse. Each sense unit is explored in three sections: (1) introductory matters, (2) tracing the train of thought, (3) key hermeneutical and theological questions--From publisher description

Romans by Charles H Talbert( Book )

4 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 288 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Romans was written to deal with the particular historical problem of the relations between Jewish and Gentile Christians in Rome. The function of Paul's gospel was to unify these two, while its content was a theology that placed Jew and Gentile on an equal footing, both in their sin and in their salvation. Sometimes a modern situation corresponds to Paul's original one. In such a case, Romans speaks directly. Most of the time, modern situations are different from those in Paul's time. Romans still speaks. Although the content of Romans was elaborated in a particular cultural context, its applicability goes far beyond the original milieu, as Christian history has amply demonstrated. Distinguished biblical scholar Charles Talbert's Romans leads readers into the biblical world of Paul's Letter to the Romans, while at the same time it seeks to open our ears to the lasting truth of God's word for today ... the primary goal of the Smyth & Helwys Bible Commentary series is to make available serious, credible biblical scholarship in an accessible and less intimidating format. A visual generation of believers deserves a commentary series that contains not only the all-important textual commentary on Scripture, but images, photographs, maps, works of fine art, and drawings that bring the text to life. Each volume of the Smyth & Helwys Bible Commentary series features a CD-ROM, which expands the uses and capabilities of the Commentary even more."--Publisher description

Learning through suffering : the educational value of suffering in the New Testament and in its milieu by Charles H Talbert( Book )

6 editions published between 1991 and 2018 in English and held by 226 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the various Biblical explanations of suffering, this volume chooses to focus on one: suffering sometimes possesses an educational value. It explores the differing versions of this view in Paul, James, 1 Peter, Hebrews and Luke-Acts, and sets these Christian perspectives against the backdrop of similar explanations in Jewish and Greco-Roman cultures
