8 of 9 people found the following review helpful By Matthew Gunia VINE VOICE on September 6, 2005
Format: Hardcover
A large part of a church body's theology will be reflected in how that church body views Paul's first letter to the Corinthians. In this 16-chapter book of the Bible, Paul addresses many topics that still concern the church today. Within this letter, Paul writes about Holy Communion, the Resurrection of the Dead on the Last Day, the role of women in the church, the individual Christian's relationship with believers in other faiths, and homosexuality--just to name a few. Any one of these topics would be a daunting task to cover in a book, let alone all of them.

However, Gregory Lockwood--missionary to the indiginious people of Papua New Guinea for 17 years, professor at Concordia Theological Seminary in Fort Wayne, Indiana for 10 years, and currently the pastor of Bethlehem Lutheran Church in Bendigo, Victoria, Australia--treats all of these topics masterfully in this thorough commentary. Lockwood is a Christ-centered sacramentalist who believes in the inerrancy of Scripture and this is evident throughout this well-written commentary

As Lockwood covers the major controversial issues above mentioned, two major themes shine through: (1) he shows the reader the relationship between the individual believer and the Church and the relationship between the Church and Christ. (2) He shows that spiritual gifts and Gospel freedom are intended not to puff up the individual, but to build up and edify the church. With these themes in mind, Lockwood uses sound scholarly exegesis and pastoral care and concern to advance the orthodox, Lutheran understanding of these issues. While normally gentle and loving in his prose, he can also be tough at certain parts.

Lockwood has written a sound, scholarly treatment of Paul's first letter to the Corinthians. Lockwood treats the controversial topics of 1 Cor. with skill and grace, yet firmly presenting his exegesis within the context of the surrounding theological landscape. Using this commentary, I know one will be kept away from Paul's accusation in 2 Peter, i.e. those that distort Paul's teachings to their own destruction.

Very well done. The author has taken note of the original Greek, Aramaic

and Hebrew text. He also comments, and gleans from various resources on

similar contemporary problems in the church today.
