This latest commentary in the Belief series looks at Paul’s theological wrestling with the divisions facing the early church in Corinth. These divisions arose for many reasons, among them the practices baptism and the Lord’s Supper, preaching, and the exercise of spiritual gifts.The contemporary church in North America is likewise dealing with divisions of various sorts. Who can preach? Who can celebrate Communion? Who can marry whom? With this commentary Charles L. Campbell helps preachers understand how to better respond to those questions in their own settings.
"Preachers and teachers need to study this fresh theological reading of Paul’s letter especially for the healing of the wounds that divide us." -The Presbyterian Outlook
