Paul and the Corinthians explores the sometimes tumultuous relationship between Paul and the Christians in Corinth who were struggling to make sense of their faith in a diverse and secular culture. Wingard relates his firsthand knowledge of the setting of Corinth and applies Paul's wisdom to some of the most pressing issues faced by the church today: The Church and the Bible, Making Moral Decisions, Christian Unity, Women and Men in Church and Society, The Resurrection, Christian Giving, and Reconciliation in a Broken World. Each of the seven sessions is self-contained and includes questions for reflection.
