Truth For Today Commentary: 1 Corinthians
In this letter to first-century Christians in Corinth, Paul addressed many questions which, with slight variations, continue to trouble the church today. Division, immorality, doctrinal confusion, and worldliness plagued this congregation; and one root of their conflicts—pride—is common among us still. Duane Warden's verse-by-verse study tackles difficult issues in the biblical text and draws practical application for Christians living in our own time. Paul knew that the key to overcoming congregational struggles is love. In his eloquent and familiar discussion in chapter 13, the apostle defined and described the kind of love that is needed to make the church what Christ wants it to be.
