Product Description

A solid, basic exegetical commentary rooted in the traditional evangelical Protestant tradition.

While working in Ephesus, the apostle Paul began to receive disturbing reports about the Corinthian church. These reports also contained appeals for guidance and direction. The first letter to the Corinthians betrays the nature of these questions and, of course, provides direct answers from an authoritative apostle.

Astute as Paul was, he was not content to provide simple answers. Rather, he intended to address the culture of the Corinthians church-the way they lived. Thus, he addressed five major areas:

1. True Wisdom (chapters 1-4)
2. Sexual Holiness (chapters 5-7)
3. Temple Attendance (chapters 8-10)
4. Behavior at church meetings (chapters 11-14)
5. Resurrection hope (15)

Providing answers to perennially relevant 1 Corinthians is an extremely important letter, and in 1 Corinthians: Holiness and Hope of a Rescued People illuminates the letter for today's audience providing timely exposition of a letter whose message still rings clearly today.

Publisher's Description

First Corinthians is Paul's masterly pastoral letter to a church, which he founded five years earlier, but which in the meantime has lost its way. In Ephesus Paul was visited by various groups from Corinth bringing disturbing reports of recent developments, but also a list of questions. A little sleuthing helps us recover an idea of the problems in Corinth as well as the questions to which they wanted answers. A less imaginative person may have simply addressed the problems and replied to the questions, but not Paul. Paul discerned in the problems and the questions five underlying issues. He has arranged his letter as a series of sermons - True Wisdom (1-4), Sexual Holiness (5-7), Temple Attendance (8-10), Behaviour at Church Meetings (11-14), Resurrection Hope (15). This letter is both timely and timeless. It was, doubtless, piercingly relevant for the Corinthians as they sat transfixed listening as it was read to them. But the letter continues to challenge readers today as they apply its principles to life in an increasingly unstable and hostile world - as Corinth was.

Editorial Reviews

"A scholar's eye for background detail, a preacher's careful attention to meaning, a pastor's application to the challenges of our contemporary context. All three combine in this clear-minded and warm-hearted exposition of 1st Corinthians, to make Paul's great letter come alive with sparkling insights and pressing relevance."
