Series: BE Series Commentary
The early church in Corinth was falling apart. Sin was rampant, divisions were growing, and the congregation was living no differently than the world around them. What had corrupted this once vibrant church? The apostle Paul immediately understood the symptoms: The people had traded God's perfect wisdom for faulty human knowledge. Be Wise guides us through Paul's first letter to the Corinthians, where he encourages his fellow believers to embrace a life of wisdom and truth.
Part of Dr. Warren W. Wiersbe's best-selling "BE" commentary series, Be Wise has now been updated with study questions and a new introduction by Ken Baugh. A respected pastor and Bible teacher, Dr. Wiersbe shares a wealth of insights on living wisely.
Dr. Warren W. Wiersbe is an internationally known Bible teacher and the former pastor of three churches, including the Moody Church in Chicago. For ten years he served as general director and Bible teacher for the Back to the Bible radio broadcast. Dr. Wiersbe has written more than 150 books, including the popular "Be" series of expositional Bible studies, which has sold more than four million copies. In 2002, he was awarded the Jordan Lifetime Achievement Award by the Evangelical Christian Publishers Association. He and his wife, Betty, live in Lincoln, Nebraska.

In the old version of the book, there were no Bible study questions given in the book. There appear to be small group study questions at the end of each chapter in the newest version of this book.
Each chapter covered a chunk of 1 Corinthians that covered a similar theme, but you need to read the Scripture from your own Bible as the verses aren't provided in the book. It simply assumed you had read the verses that were being talked about.
The book was easy to read and understand, and it drew out some interesting points from the Bible text. The author made some doctrinal statements that some denominations will strongly disagree with, but he didn't spend much time supporting his view. He also made at least one error in his historical statements. On page 161, he said, "The early church met on the first day of the week in commemoration of the resurrection of Jesus Christ." Even in the Bible, it states that they met together on other days as well. It wasn't until later, for political reasons, that the first day of the week was made the "correct" day to meet for formal meetings of Christians. Overall, though, it was still a good book.
