We live in a divided world.

People argue, friendships end, families separate, and churches split. Christendom is as splintered as the secular sphere. These conflicts are not a novel occurrence. What is happening now has happened before. We know it shouldn’t be this way. Almost 2,000 years ago the Apostle Paul wrote his first letter to the Corinthian church for the same issues.

They lived in another time, another place, another culture. And yet, in many ways, they faced the same challenges we are facing today.

Like us, the Corinthians were a diverse group whose differences began to divide them. When word of their quarrels reached Paul, he wrote a letter in which he addressed some of the controversial matters and encouraged them to be unified. Once we understand what Paul was saying to the church, then we can find common principles that apply to our lives and circumstances today.

Striving for Unity: A Study on 1 Corinthians begins each chapter with prayer, guides the reader to examine the context of the Corinthian world, gives an overview of the letter as a whole, then progresses chapter by chapter and verse by verse to help the reader gain a better understanding of how to more effectively handle differences in our day.
