First Corinthians was written to a church rocked by division, with great cracks developing over worldly issues and a misunderstanding of God's plan. The church at Corinth is a warning of what out churches today are fast becoming. The beloved church of the Corinthians has become world based, glory motivated, and grounded in immorality.
But there was hope! A hope found in a plan inspired by God. We call this plan 1 Corinthians. God's course of action, laid out in 1 Corinthians, brought repentance and unity to a church that seemed on the verge of collapse. This makes 1 Corinthians one of the most important books we can turn to for guidance, as we begin the long, difficult task of bringing our churches back to unity with God.
It is in this letter that we find many of the basic Christian truths that we hold today:
- The Resurrection
- The Sanctity of Marriage
- Sexual Immorality
- Civil Law
- Church Discipline
- Spiritual Gifts
- And Much More!
Dealing with most of the issues in our churches today, 1 Corinthians brings you to a greater understand of God. This detailed plan also equips the Christian with the spiritual tools needed to bring unity and devotion to God out of chaos and disunity. If you are a Christian, a Sunday school teacher or a leader in the church, you will find 1 Corinthians a helpful addition to your library.
1 Corinthians has 412 pages.
