Life among Christians can be great, but it can also be exasperating!
The joys of fellowship in Christ too can also give way to division and debate. You may get drawn into arguments over ways to worship or the proper role of charismatic gifts. You may also wonder why we don't get along together like we should. How can we recapture the unity of the early church.
You may be surprised to find out that there were early Christians who didn't always live together in harmony. Paul Stevens and Dan Williams guide individuals and small groups through a study of 1 Corinthians that shows some of the issues the Corinthian church was facing. You will see how much your church can relate with those issues. 1 Corinthians is a portrait of Christian community, not as it should be, but as it often is. Discover practical advice for overcoming the challenges of life together.
1 Corinthians is now available in the IVP's revised LifeGuide format, featuring questions for starting small group discussions and for personal reflection, alongside the new Now or Later section after each session.
