Overview

It’s common today to see the image of the cross adorning churches, dangling from necklaces, and gleaming from lapels. Yet that image, so sanitized for us today, was grotesque and abhorrent to those living in the first century—a symbol of evil, torture, and shame. It’s this realistic and horrifying view of the cross that should call us to Christian ministry and compel us to share the Good News of Christ’s triumph over death.

Through his exposition of 1 Corinthians, D. A. Carson presents a comprehensive view of what the death of Christ means in preaching and ministering to God’s people. He confronts factionalism, servant-leadership, shaping “world” Christians, and the source of knowledge in order to help Christian leaders learn principles for dynamic, cross-centered worship.

With Logos Bible Software, Scripture passages appear on mouse-over, and all cross-references link to the other resources in your digital library, making this volume powerful and easy to access—a cornerstone reference for scholarly work or personal Bible study. Perform comprehensive searches by topic or Scripture reference—finding, for instance, every mention of “leadership” or “1 Corinthians 4.”
