The Wiersbe Bible Study Series: 1 Corinthians by Warren W. Wiersbe

The Wiersbe Bible Study Series: 1 CorinthiansIn first-century Greece, a fledgling church was struggling to live out their new faith in a corrupt culture. The congregation at Corinth was mired in contradiction, heralding the power of spiritual gifts and knowledge, yet foolishly engaging in sinful behavior. This troubled church inspired the apostle Paul to write one of his most extraordinary letters.The Wiersbe Bible Study Series explores timeless wisdom found in God’s Word. Based on Dr. Warren W. Wiersbe’s popular “BE” series of commentaries, each study provides topical, relevant insights from selected books of the Bible. Designed for small groups or individuals, this eight-week study explores Paul’s call for wisdom in the life of the believer, a truth that remains as relevant as ever.

Sabbatum Excerpt: William H. Willimon on Church in the Culture


“Though Christianity has not been fully disestablished in our culture, it is rapidly losing its once privileged place. Therefore, we pastors are forced to develop a new paradigm for our work. The most appropriate paradigm… has its roots within the apostolic church – the paradigm we see embodied in the Acts of the Apostles where the church is moving into the world, constantly interacting with the world, but always with a consciousness of its radical distinction from the world. In Acts, the church is clearly moving west, toward Rome. But it moves toward Rome with a massive educational effort. Rather than educating Christians to adapt to the world, the church sought to adapt the world to the church, to convert the world rather than to be subverted by the world…. this is the age in which we now live.”[1]
