This study is a verse-by-verse exposition dealing with practical instruction for the local church and
Paul's first letter to the believers in Corinth was originally written to answer these questions. Because these problems are still prevalent in society, Paul's letter remains an important teaching message for us today.
Are denominations Scriptural? For what sins may a person be excommunicated from the church? Is it right for a Christian to go to law against another believer? What should we think about marriage and divorce? What is the place of women in the church? What is the gift of tongues? What will the resurrection body be like?
This study will help you know the answer to these questions. This letter was originally written to answer certain questions that had arisen in the assembly at Corinth. But many of these problems are still with us and will be until the end of the age.View full product details

The letters of John are practical. They can be disturbing, too, for John allows no shades of gray in our lives. With him, things are black or white, right or wrong, true or false, good or bad. "God is light, and in Him is no darkness at all."
We are living in days when, so far as the world is concerned, the prevailing philosophy is that morals are relative and religion should be synthesized. John’s writings blow such fuzzy cobwebs right out of the minds of God’s people.
This study will challenge you to face squarely the absolutes of the Christian faith.View full product details
When Peter wrote this letter to believers in Asia Minor, persecution was increasing and they were under pressure to deny their faith. Peter’s letter is full of practical instruction on attitudes and behavior to strengthen their faith and witness. The world has always been (and will continue to be) hostile to Jesus Christ and His followers. In light of that, the letter of 1 Peter contains both relevant and needed teaching and encouragement for Christians today.View full product details

Paul’s first letter to the Corinthians produced the desired effect.For example, the immoral brother was expelled from the fellowship of the local church and showed deep repentance.
In this, his second letter, Paul reveals his anxiety while awaiting a report from Titus concerning developments at Corinth. In the meantime, Paul experiences some of his darkest hours.Trouble appeared on every side. "Without were fightings; within were fears." Paul’s detractors made a threefold assault upon him; they attacked his person, his teaching, and his character.
In the midst of all his troubles, Paul discovers not only that the "Father of mercies" was the "God of all comfort," but also that he could prove the all-sufficiency of God’s grace in his life.
