Item description for First and Second Corinthians, Straight From the Heart (Orthodox Bible Study Companion) by Lawrence R. Farley...

The community 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. His Corinthian correspondence abides as a lasting legacy, and a challenge for all churches everywhere. About the commentary series This commentary was written for your grandmother. And for your plumber, your banker, and the girl who serves you French Fries at the nearby McDonald's. 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. It is written for the pious Orthodox layman who is mystified by such things as Source Criticism, but who nonetheless wants to know what the Scriptures mean. Working from a literal translation of the original 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 the exegetical, feeding both the heart and the mind.

Reviews - What do customers think about First and Second Corinthians, Straight From the Heart (Orthodox Bible Study Companion)?

Helpful Bible Study  Nov 21, 2007
Fr. Farley's commentary on the New TEstament books are a tremendous help to me in understanding not only the Scripture itself, but also the history and perspective of the Apostle Paul. Fr. Farley really adds depth to my Bible Study. It has been a real blessing to me to have "discovered" these commentaries, and the best addition to my library, next to my Bible!
You've Got Mail....  Jun 1, 2007
Lawrence Farley's bible study companions are an excellent resource. Not only do they provide an easy to use format - but with self-contained note pages and the actual bible verses printed in the book it can be used in confined spaces - i.e. while travelling etc.

This study guide has a definite bias - that of the Apostolic Church Father's interpretation of scripture. This is a GOOD THING. It opens the study passages up in a way that is closer to the originally intended understanding. If you're reading someone else's mail - i.e. a letter written to a first century Corinthian community - it's valuable to get insight into the cultural environment that existed during that time. Knowing the traditions that were handed down through the Fathers of the Church - helps in that understanding.

The background information is extremely thorough and often reveals a perspective on an obscure passage that we would not have access to, based on our viewpoints in today's society.

A very useful and valuable resource that makes a great addition to any bible study tools collection.
