Product Description

Product Description

Most Bible commentaries take us on a one-way trip from the twentieth century to the first century. But they leave us there, assuming that we can somehow make the return journey on our own. In other words, they focus on the original meaning of the passage but don't discuss its contemporary application. The information they offer is valuable -- but the job is only half done! The NIV Application Commentary Series helps us with both halves of the interpretive task. This new and unique series shows readers how to bring an ancient message into modern context. It explains not only what the Bible means but also how it can speak powerfully today.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good commentary 26 Feb 2011
By MS
Format:Hardcover
A fair introduction to the book of 1 Corinthians with helpful application as the title suggests. Lacks the detail needed for scholarly analysis of the text but useful for those who wish to study for personal benefit.

5.0 out of 5 stars A balanced look at original meaning and modern application 13 Aug 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Dr. Blomberg does an excellent job of combining scholarly but accessible exegesis of the text of 1 Corinthians with an extremely balanced examination of modern applications. The troubles of the Corinthian church remain germane for the 20th and 21st century church. In spite of the nearly two thousand year of "progress," problems such as willful and baseless divisiveness, sexual immorality, propriety of conduct during worship services, and the role of women in the church exist in one extreme or the other in almost every modern denomination. Every Christian can benefit from a modern look at the overarching importance of love in the life and ministry of believers. Dr. Blomberg's fair application across the doctrinal spectrum, his willingness to bridge between the original context and the modern to confront divisive traditions and practices head on, and his focus on the importance of the fundamental unity of all Christians make this a very valuable and very readable look at Paul's inspired solutions to the problems of both a first century church and modern churches.

2.0 out of 5 stars Good commentary, HORRIBLE Kindle transition 6 April 2013
By Zach - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
If you like having to page through the entire book, one page at a time, because whoever converted this volume to Kindle left out the Majority of the book (i.e. the actual COMMENTARY PART) when coding the TOC, then you'll love this. Otherwise, this may be the first Bible commentary that makes you swear.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not the best commentary 2 July 2010
By DC from DFW - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
After teaching through most of 1 Corinthians now, I have to say that I am disappointed by this commentary. While I have other examples of the NIV Application Commentary series (such as K. Lawson Younger's excellent work on Judges/Ruth), Dr. Blomberg's volume is simply not very good. In many cases, there seems to have been a lack of effort put into the "Original Meaning" sections, resulting in thin discussions and a lack of detail. The "Bridging Contexts" sections are somewhat better, but things fall flat again in the "Contemporary Significance" sections, as Blomberg sometimes pushes what are evidently his own somewhat liberal points of view that lack scriptural basis in certain areas. Of the four commentaries that I read before teaching regarding this epistle, this is my least favorite.

2.0 out of 5 stars Frustrating to navigate 2 Oct 2013
By A hall - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
While the information found in this commentary was outstanding, navigating through it was completely frustrating. There was no index to quickly move from one chapter or section to another. This has made me very reluctant to use it and until that is corrected, I will hesitate to get another one in this series on kindle. I will just stick to print format.

Still, a far more powerful witness occurs when people agree to learn to sing music they don’t naturally like and support activities that are not their highest priorities. &quote;
