Exegetical Commentary on First Corinthians is a unique, verse-by-verse, 16-volume study on Paul's great epistle. Zodhiates takes each chapter of the book and devotes an entire volume to its study and application. Full of detail, careful attention to proper interpretation, common sense, practical applications, and helpful stories, this commentary is a great resource for any student of God's Word.
Faith, Love, and Hope is probably one of the most extended expository works on that much neglected, though eminently practical, book of James. It took three years to complete the studies in this series, and the author seeks to bring within everyone's comprehension the depths of thought in the Greek text. The studies therefore will be of value to both the preacher and to the general Christian reader and worker.
Although these studies are based on the Greek text of James, they are not technical or specialized. Their main purpose is to touch and influence the life of the reader and to help the reader apply the message of James to practical life. This is a book on Christian conduct and includes crucial lessons on how God wants us to behave.
About the Author/Editor Spiros Zodhiates was born to Greek parents on the island of Cyprus in 1922. After completing his Greek education, he attended the American University in Cairo, Egypt, The National Bible Institute (now Shelton College), and New York University. He earned his Doctor of Theology degree from Luther Rice Seminary. In addition, Dr. Zodhiates has been the recipient of several honorary doctorates.
In 1946, he came to the United States at the invitation of the American Committee for the Evangelization of the Greeks. At that time, there were two part-time employees who met in a small, one-room office. Dr. Zodhiates became president of this organization in 1966. Now known as AMG International ('Advancing the Ministries of the Gospel'), it carries on a worldwide evangelistic and relief ministry with its headquarters located in Chattanooga, Tennessee.
Dr. Zodhiates is a recognized authority on the Greek New Testament, and has edited an edition of the Modern Greek New Testament that was published by the Million Testaments Campaign and the American Bible Society. He is the author of numerous exegetical books and booklets in both the Greek and English languages. In addition, he was heard daily on the New Testament Light radio program, released over a network of stations across the United States and Canada.
After suffering numerous health problems in the late 1990s, Zodhiates transitioned out of active work, though many of his commentary manuscripts are still being edited and published, and his radio and television recordings are being redistributed digitally. He died in Chattanooga on October 10, 2009.
