Full Product Description
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-colour images.
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.
"Few commentaries help the reader move beyond study to thoughtful application, and fewer still move beyond application to teaching. That's why I am thrilled with the Teach the Text Commentary Series from Baker. I highly recommend it."--George H. Guthrie, Benjamin W. Perry Professor of Bible at Union University
"At last, a commentary series written by serious scholars who are seriously aiming at aiding teachers and preachers in the church. This puts whole worlds of biblical context and information in the hands that need it most."--John Ortberg, senior pastor of Menlo Park Presbyterian Church and author of Who Is This Man?
"Pastors, communicators, and fellow Bible teachers, shove some books over and make room on your shelves. Here is the best of biblical scholarship made accessible, applicable, and relevant to life right here on the hot pavement where we need it most."--Beth Moore, author and teacher

Perry Professor of Bible, Union University, Jackson, TN
"Pastors, communicators, and fellow Bible teachers, shove some books over and make room on your shelves. The Teach the Text Commentary Series was specifically envisioned with us in the lens and emphasizes precisely what matters most: communicating the heart of the authoritative text itself. Here is the best of biblical scholarship made accessible, applicable, and relevant to life right here on the hot pavement where we need it most."--Beth Moore, author and teacher
"Most commentaries are either too technical or too light to be of much help, leaving us to wander through the text on our own. Accurately balanced between good scholarship and solid preaching perspectives, these commentaries provide an unusually deep and relevant approach to the text. If you take preaching and teaching the Word seriously you must take this series seriously as well. "--Joe Stowell, President, Cornerstone University
