First Corinthians

Front Cover
Westminster John Knox Press, Mar 1, 2000 - Religion - 114 pages

In First Corinthians, Paul writes to a troubled church at Corinth, urging its members to live a life distinct from the ways of others, governed by the law of love, and affirming of the tenets of the faith. His direct responses to their shortcomings provide us a window into daily church life in the first century. But this letter also paints a vivid picture of what any church can become by the grace of God.

User Review  - Elizabeth Boston - Christianbook.com

Different study than I am used to for group use, but dynamic and current references add a punch. There is not a verse study, nor even a book chapter for every chapter in the Bible. However it is good for an overview, or for a group wanting to bite off chunks after other kinds of study. Read full review
