Phil Moore has obviously studied not only the Bible but also other documents and literature from Biblical times. He has a very good understanding of what the church in Corinth would have been like and uses that to encourage the reader to persevere in their own faith. It is a challenging book but just occasionally I have issues with some of the things he says. It would be good to read other commentaries in addition to this one.

I find Phil Moore's " Straight to the Heart " series very helpful books to have to read side by side with the Bible . These aren't verse by verse commentaries, but give what the author calls " bite sized" chapters giving an overview of, in this case, the letters to the Corinthians. The books in the series inform, challenge & teach the reader . I recommend the series
