These books are ideal resources for preparing text-based sermons and a worthy addition to seminary courses and advanced Bible study groups.
In this volume, John Proctor provides an accessible study on First and Second Corinthians. Paul�s first letter to the Corinthians addresses the basic components of human life, such as leadership, marriage, hospitality, and bereavement. The second letter mostly revolves around the pains and joys of a pastoral relationship. Proctor�s volume provides insightful commentary that examines how the letters spoke to the people of Corinth and how they are received today.
