The Corinthian Church was struggling with divisions, moral failures, and confusion caused by issues arising from their culture. Paul masterfully draws the solution to all these problems from the heart of God's redemptive story—the power of the cross of Jesus Christ. Paul's Corinthian correspondence helps us resolve issues facing Christians and their churches today.
Do you want a deeper, more fulfilling way of Bible study? Do you want to know God through Scripture—not just to know the teachings, but to have a relationship with the Teacher? Perhaps you want to begin daily Bible reading, but need guidance. Or you need a guide for family Bible study. Or your small group Bible study needs revitalizing.
This meditative commentary is for you. There are many commentaries on the books of the Bible and workbooks for Bible study, but this series is different. It employs the classic Christian method of "holy reading" to help you hear the voice of God.
Holy reading involves slowly engaging a short passage of Scripture, listening closely, reading repeatedly, praying the words, and perhaps sharing with fellow believers. God will bless us, our families, and our churches if we take the time to be still, listen, and do his word.
