The Teach the Text Commentary Series gives pastors the best of biblical scholarship and presents the information needed to move seamlessly from the meaning of the text to its effective communication. By keeping the discussion in each carefully selected preaching unit to six pages of focused commentary, the volumes allow pastors to quickly grasp the most important information. Each unit of the commentary includes the big idea and key themes of the passage; sections dedicated to understanding, teaching, and illustrating the text; and full-color illustrations, maps, and photos.

The apostle Paul wrote 1 Corinthians to a church rife with problems: factions, pride, spiritual immaturity, immorality, improper teaching, and problematic practices in worship. Preben Vang sheds light on these controversies and problems. In particular, he shows how the cultural values of Corinth, especially the patronage system and the rhetorical and philosophical environment, contributed to problems in the church. The issue of cultural influence on Christian life and church ministry is still as relevant as ever. This insightful commentary will equip pastors and teachers to bring the powerful lessons of this letter to bear on the twenty-first-century church.
