New Testament scholars have widely recognized and acknowledged the occasional nature of Paul's first canonical letter to the Corinthians. In the letter, Paul addresses real problems that were faced by real people in a real world. This commentary shows how the church in the twenty-first century mirrors the Corinthian Church in many ways. It goes further to show how the church in the present day, particularly its leaders, could benefit from how Paul addressed the situations that the church faced. ""1 Corinthians serves as our most detailed source of information regarding the good, the bad, and ugly in the daily life of early followers of Jesus. For that reason, Paul's letter to these believers offers us valuable guidance for today's church. In this commentary, Dr. Ayodeji Adewuya provides a helpful resource for the busy pastor looking for help with sermon preparation on this important letter. At the same time, this book will assist today's serious Christian wanting to understand Paul's letter to these Spirit-filled but divided Christians in a deeper way."" --James Miller, Asbury Seminary ""This is an excellent book bridging the gap between biblical scholarship and how the church needs to grow in maturity and in numbers--providing useful insights, resources, and training in support of church ministries. The rare combination of brilliant scholarship and an unapologetic African pastor's urge comes through the pages as a gift to the global church. I appreciate the depth and breadth, as well as the challenge it offers for spiritual maturity. It is spiritually edifying and refreshing to journey along with Professor Adewuya on tour exploring what is going on in 1 Corinthians and how that may inform how we live as Christians."" --from the foreword by Dan Darko, Gordon College J.
