Customer Review

on April 27, 2002
Yes! A very insighful work that does not shy away from the tough issue presented in 1 Corinthians (people following men instead of God, sleeping around in the church, slander and gossip and jealousies, coveting...).
The only part of this work I had any trouble with was the cessionaist approach MacArthur takes towards the gifts of the Spirit (12-14). Then, again, it is good to read the thoughts of sound thinking evangelicals-- even when they disagree with you on peripheral issues.
Perhaps the best aspect of this work is that... anytime MacArthur writes, you know he has thought and prayed through his position. And, he will not write something unless he can defend it from the Scriptures. This is helpful when you are unsure about some issue (divorce and remarriage, for instance, and presented in 1 Corinthians 7 f.), and it is honest even when you disagree.
I've read a few in the series of commentaries he offers. I would not buy the entire set (of any set of commentaries, really, because some are outstanding and others fall a bit short). This is one I would definitely grab hold of, if you can fork out the [money] for it.
