About the Book:
Divisions, immorality, marital strife, spiritual gifts, money, wisdom, folly, and holiness—these may have been Corinthian problems first, but we need Paul’s wisdom just as much today. But it can be confusing to read 1 Corinthians on our own. What we need is a guide—someone who can explain what’s going on in the world outside the letter and bring to life Paul’s words of exhortation. This is what the best preachers do, but you don’t have to wait until Sunday’s sermon. Encounter the beautiful depth of 1 Corinthians through an enlightening verse-by-verse commentary from Robert R. Hughes that’s both straightforward and insightful. You’ll gain:
Important historical and cultural background
Insights from the original languages
Help with the difficult passages
You don’t have to go to seminary to encounter God in exciting, new ways through His Word. Discover how much more enjoyable your personal study will be with understandable, quality Bible commentary for everyday life.
This was a wonderful commentary that digs into taking a deeper look at 1 Corinthians from a thorough approach. Loaded with cross references and historical context, I gleaned a lot from this book. Less than 200 pages long it’s not an incredibly long work, but it is still jam-backed with content. This isn’t one that I would recommend reading without having your Bible nearby. In order to get the most out of this study you really should have your Bible open so that you can follow along with all of the cross references and study their context. It’s also one that you want to take your time with and not rush through. 1 Corinthians is a rich book with loads that we can learn from it, and this commentary aims to help enrich our study of it. I highly recommend giving this a read.
