This volume uses powerful illustrations, engaging anecdotes, and practical applications to help readers truly engage with God’s Word in a powerful and authentic way. Furthermore, pastors, teachers, and small group leaders will find valuable assistance in preparing to lead others through the biblical text.

Stephen Um’s dynamic ministry in downtown Boston is grounded in his faithful, weekly ministry of the Word of God. His experience there makes him an ideal expositor of 1 Corinthians, because today’s secular city is an ideal context for understanding and applying the same gospel message that Paul first preached to the Christians in cosmopolitan Corinth.
—Philip Graham Ryken, president, Wheaton College
Stephen Um demonstrates the intellect of a scholar, the heart of a pastor, and the experience of the city to relate the truths of the gospel for city dwellers of the apostles’ time that were no less cultured, urbane, or sophisticated than we imagine ourselves to be.
—Bryan Chapell, president emeritus, Covenant Theological Seminary
