A Balanced Book
Commentaries can often be to the extreme on either side of the spectrum. The volumes can be scholarly and rich in textual studies or it can be highly practical and applicable while also being easy to understand.
This volume however settles in the middle and has a great balance of both scholarly & practical understanding while exhibiting the heart of a pastor.
1 Corinthians is often known as a messy book about a messy church and Stephen Um makes sense of the mess very clearly. Pastors & students will find this volume to be extremely helpful with background study and how this applies to every church congregation today.
Pick this volume up if you are looking for something to really strengthen your study-time & teaching time.
