This commentary draws its content from the Concordia Commentary series. This new lay-friendly edition includes all of the original translation and commentary but excludes technical notes, original biblical languages, and terminology required of an academic edition.
Today's world holds similar challenges that were present in Corinth during Paul's time. This commentary shows how Paul witnesses to Christ as a clear beacon who guides us through all of lives issues.
The author's treatment is quite exhaustive. A number of worthy items include Christian maturity, homosexuality, headship, unity in apostolic doctrine, the Lord's Supper, the Church Growth Movement, and tongues.
