Robert Candlish produced two magnificent commentaries on Genesis and 1 John which have a richly deserved reputation. This work, a series of lectures on 1 Corinthians 15, deserves similar acclaim, and shows the centrality of the Resurrection to the Christian faith and the experience of the Christian.
Candlish claims that he has not attempted to provide a complete analysis of the chapter, and this is its great strength. With technical and critical discussion avoided, the message of the chapter remains the principal focus together with its practical significance. Themes are constantly reinforced so that the reader feels that the overall message is grasped.
