For hundreds of years Christendom has been blessed with Bible commentaries written by great men of God who were highly respected for their godly walk and their insight into spiritual truth. The Crossway Classic Commentary Series, carefully adapted for maximum understanding and usefulness, presents the very best work on individual Bible books for today's believers. The apostle Paul's epistles to the church at Corinth are masterpieces of spiritual truth applied to crises within the church—crises of both belief and practice. In his first letter Paul gives the Corinthian believers an honest inventory of their spiritual strengths and weaknesses—fully gifted and yet divided; believing foundational Gospel truth and yet condoning immorality and doctrinal distortions—and urges them to fully commit themselves to Christ. This classic commentary is a treasure for all who desire a closer walk with God. Whether used for supplementary reading or for careful study, it will prove profitable to every follower of Christ who opens his or her heart to its gems.

“Thus the pagan husband, in virtue of his union with a Christian wife, although he remained a pagan, was sanctified; he assumed a new relation; he was set apart for the service of God, as the guardian of one of his chosen ones and as the parent of children who, in virtue of their believing mother, were children of the covenant.” (Page 118)

“‘The children of these mixed marriages are universally recognized as holy—that is, as belonging to the church. If this is correct, which no one disputes, the marriages themselves must be sanctified by the believing partner. Otherwise, your children would be unclean—that is, born out of the blessing of the church.’” (Page 118)

“The argument is this: experience having shown the insufficiency of human wisdom, God set it aside and declared it to be worthless by adopting the foolishness of preaching as the means of salvation.” (Page 40)

“All the hearers of the Gospel are divided into two groups. To the one, the doctrine of salvation through a crucified Redeemer appears absurd.” (Page 39)

“To the other, this doctrine is divinely efficacious in producing peace and holiness.” (Page 39)

Charles Hodge

Charles Hodge (1797–1898), an American Presbyterian theologian, was ordained in 1821, and taught at Princeton for almost his whole life. In 1825 he founded the Biblical Repository and Princeton Review, and during 40 years was its editor, and the principal contributor to its pages. He received the degree of D.D. from Rutgers College in 1834, and that of LL.D. from Washington College, Pennsylvania, in 1864. In 1840 Dr. Hodge was transferred to the chair of didactic theology, retaining still, however, the department of New Testament exegesis, the duties of which he continued to discharge until his death.

    Does not hold to teaching that salvation involves repentance to the Lordship of Christ, and God's commands in 1 Cor. that women should have long hair, , and that men are commanded to go after speaking up in the church service. A plain bible believing reading of 1 Cor. 12-14 shows that today's church services don't follow God's instructions of how God wants a church service to be conducted. How have we arrived at the place were the modern church service today is accepted as biblical? I think Martin Luther's words give the answer. " I have observed that all the heresies and errors have arisen not from Scripture's own plain statements, but when that plainness of statement is ignored, and men follow the Scholastic arguments of their own brains" .
