Material type: TextTextSeries: Believers church Bible commentary: Publisher: Harrisonburg, Virginia : Herald Press, [2017]Description: 402 pages ; 22 cm.Content type: text Media type: unmediated Carrier type: volumeISBN: 9781513802442; 1513802445.Other title: First Corinthians.Subject(s): Bible. Corinthians, 1st -- CommentariesDDC classification: 227/.2077 LOC classification: BS2675.53 | .N54 2017Summary: Christians in the bustling, diverse city of Corinth in 50 BCE quarreled about how to be faithful to Jesus. In Paul's first letter to the Corinthians, he calls the small band of new believers to unity and cautions against factionalism, themes that pastor Dan Nighswander unpacks for contemporary readers in this thirty-second volume in the Believers Church Bible Commentary series. Any Christians who experience division over loyalty to different leaders, who find it hard to agree on sexual ethics (or to live up to them), and who feel tension between their theological convictions and social context will find common ground with believers in Corinth. Home of the exalted "love chapter," which roots all Christian action in the greatest gift, 1 Corinthians equips those who follow Jesus to craft true community with other believers, differences notwithstanding. With keen theological, biblical, and pastoral insight, Nighswander illuminates for readers the apostle Paul's challenge to the Corinthian church and calls Christians today to unity through the reconciling work of Christ. -back cover.
