The conflicts of the early Christians in Corinth were in many ways similar to our struggles today as Christians. With divisions, immorality, persecution, and other trials of the faithful, the message of St. Paul to the Corinthians is a much-needed message for our own times. First Corinthians: The Church and the Christian Community explores the key elements that the apostle Paul introduced to a new and growing Church. St. Paul taught the Corinthians about the nature of grace and the Church as the Body of Christ. In addition, he introduced the Corinthian Christians to the most powerful gift of all, the Eucharist.

We will use the series in an at-home Bible study with 11 participants. I have previewed the DVD and workbook and find them exceptional. Dr. Tim Gray is knowledgeable about this subject. He gives additional information about the culture and history of the Corinthians and ways to apply the letter to our own modern lives. Best Uses: Individual study, Small group study; Pros: Easy To Understand, Great DVD Presentation, New Insights
