Anthony Thiselton's long 1 Corinthians commentary is widely regarded as one of the best commentaries on the Greek text. He's written a shorter commentary for those without such skills.

Here's a review:

The book has been stuck in pre-pub for some time.

I hope this review might make some consider pre-ordering.

Here's the link to the book on Logos:

Isn't this the abridged version of the NIGTC volume by the same author?

In a sense abriged, but with pastoral insights. If you have a chance, read the review link.

Hope this comment from the above review on the shorter commentary helps:

Due to the encouragement of others, Thiselton has now written a shorter and more
pastoral 1 Corinthians commentary, one that is approximately one fourth the size of his
previous one. Instead of being technical and exhaustive, this shorter exegetical and
pastoral commentary reads easily and is accessible to a wide range of people. This
commentary, however, is not merely a shortened version.... It adds pastoral reflection to the many issues found within the epistle. It was also written more than five years after his previous commentary and thus represents his further mature reflection on 1 Corinthians.
