Now available: Vol. 10, FIRST CORINTHIANS, in the BIC Commentary series at cranfordville.com A SINGLE VOLUME commentary of 287 pages in the pdf format, To follow in time will be an in depth coverage of over a thousand pages. This commentary covers the entire text of First Corinthians from a socio-rhetorical exegetical perspective.

Paul addressed unique problems found almost entirely only in this one Christian community. At the center of the fist full of problems plaguing the church at Corinth stands a segment in the church that continued to think in their Greek culturally conditioned manner rather than turning to God's way of thinking at conversion. First Corinthians stands as a huge warning against every modern culturally twisted version of the Gospel in our world.
