9781598561913: 1 Corinthians: A Guide for Reflection and Prayer (Daily Bible Commentary)

"Not for everyone is the voyage to Corinth," cautioned an ancient proverb. As the leading center of trade in the eastern Mediterranean, Corinth crackled with energy, diversion, bustle, and noise. It was a city of the self-made, the recently rich, and the busy.

To the Corinthian Christians, Paul dispatched an urgent, emotion-laden letter in response to troubling reports from the flourishing young church. Writing to help them live out their faith in one of the largest and most notorious cities in the ancient world, Paul dealt with difficult questions regarding the physical body, social status, disagreement and disorder in church services, and Christian behavior in the midst of an intensely pagan environment. His forceful words of confrontation, correction, reconciliation, and blessing apply equally to believers in the prosperity and distraction of society today.

The Daily Bible Commentary
A mere reading of the Bible fails to fulfill its ultimate purpose. The Bible's message is meant to transform. The Daily Bible Commentary series distills the best of current scholarship into the straightforward language of a devotional. It skillfully opens each New Testament book and helps readers respond to the eternal truths within. General editors Richard A. Burridge, Dom Henry Wansbrough, and David Winter, together with other renowned scholars from an array of Christian traditions, provide helpful introduction, accessible explanation, and fresh meditations on individual passages. Balancing profound reflection with penetrating insight, the two-page daily readings engage the mind while never failing to touch the heart.
