CLAIMS What is claimed is:

1. An anchor comprising: an outer member including a body having an inner cavity, the inner cavity including a proximal portion configured for receipt of a delivery device and a distal portion having area of increased diameter; and an inner member coupled to the outer member, the inner member including a proximal portion having a projection configured for receipt in the area of increased diameter and a distal portion having a transverse through hole.

2. The anchor of claim 1 wherein the outer member includes threads on an outer surface of the outer member.

3. The anchor of claim 2 wherein the outer member includes longitudinal grooves on an outer surface of the member, the grooves extending a partial length of the outer member.

4. The anchor of claim 1 wherein the proximal portion of the inner member includes an opening configured for receipt of a delivery device.

5. The anchor of claim 1 wherein the outer member rotates relative the inner member.

6. The anchor of claim 1 wherein the proximal portion of the inner member lias a smaller diameter than the distal portion of the inner member,

7. A delivery device comprising: an inner shaft including a proximal portion and a distal portion; a first handle coupled to the proximal portion of the inner shaft; an outer shaft slidably engaged with the inner shal't and including a proximal portion and a distal portion; and a second handle coupled to the proximal portion of the outer shaft.

8. The delivery device of claim 7 further comprising an anchor comprising: an outer member including a body having an inner cavity, the inner cavity including a proximal portion configured for receipt of the outer shaft of the delivery device and a distal portion having area of increased diameter; and an inner member coupled to the outer member, the inner member including a proximal portion having a projection configured for receipt in the area of increased diameter and a distal portion having a transverse through hole.

9. The delivery device ofclaim 8 wherein the proximal portion of the inner member includes an opening configured for receipt of the inner shaft of the delivery device.

10. A method of tissue repair comprising: inserting a first anchor into bone, the first anchor having a flexible member coupled thereto; passing the ends of the flexible member through the tissue; providing a second anchor comprising an outer member including a body having an inner cavity, the inner cavity including a proximal portion configured for receipt of the outer shaft of a delivery device and a distal portion having area of increased diameter, and an inner member coupled to the outer member, the inner member including a proximal portion having a projection configured for receipt in the area of increased diameter and a distal portion having a transverse through hole; passing the ends of the flexible member through the through hole of the of the second anchor; and advancing the second anchor into bone via both axial and rotary advancement.
