The Apostle Paul wrote 1 Corinthians to a church rife with problems: factions, pride, spiritual immaturity, immorality, improper teaching, and problematic practices in worship. Preben Vang sheds light on these controversies and problems. In particular, he shows how the cultural values of Corinth—especially the patronage system and the rhetorical and philosophical environment—contributed to problems in the church. The issue of cultural influence on Christian life and church ministry is still as relevant as ever. This insightful commentary will equip pastors and teachers to bring the powerful lessons of this letter to bear on the twenty-first-century church.
