Quick Overview

The community St Paul founded in Corinth gave him both joy and grief, for he was to encounter problems there of disunity, sin, and arrogance - including a rejection by some of his own apostolic authority.
His two epistles to the Corinthians came straight from the heart, as he appeals to them to live in peace, in righteousness, in generosity, and not to resist his God-given authority.

About the Orthodox Study Bible Companion Series:

This commentary was written for your grandmother and your plumber. That is, it was written for the average layperson, for the nonprofessional who feels a bit intimidated by the presence of copious footnotes, long bibliographies, and all those other things which so enrich the lives of academics.

Working from a literal translation of the origfinal Greek, this commentary examines the text section by section, explaining its meaning in everyday language. Written from an Orthodox and patristic perspective, it maintains a balance between the devotional and exegetical, feeding both the heart and the mind.
