Title: NEW COLLEGEVILLE BIBLE COMMENTARY: FIRST AND SECOND CORINTHIANS
If we think the Church of the twenty-first century has multiple serious problems, dip into these two letters of Paul and come out dripping with conflicts and controversies galore. Maria Pascuzzi begins her excellent commentary by telling us that the letters give "a 'Paul's-eye' view into the life and development of one very dynamic Christian community." The Corinth community, she writes, was characterized by rivalry, obsession with status and superior wisdom, disregard for the less spiritually gifted and the poor, sexual morality, assertiveness regarding individual rights, and a disdainful attitude toward Paul. 152 pages. .
