In Book Study: Paul’s First Letter to the Corinthians (NT334) Craig Blomberg steps through the text to explain the big picture and the many issues and controversies found in 1 Corinthians. You will be encouraged in your Christian walk to understand and express your spiritual gifts and to see the contemporary relevance of the issues faced by the Corinthian church. This study reveals the pastoral heart of Paul in both addressing moral and community issues of Christian leadership, factionalism, lawsuits, sexuality and food sacrificed to idols whilst keeping rehabilitation always in mind. Taking a broad-brush approach, you will gain a balanced perspective on spiritual gifts and the importance of love before diving in to examine the controversial topics of tongues and prophecy. There is something of relevance for every Christian in this study which shows that the same issues facing the first century church can be found in the church today.
