If you're part of a church, you've probably got some good reasons to be disappointed or frustrated. And if you talk about church with those outside it, you'll usually find it meets with mild disinterest or real dislike.

It's not surprising. Churches say they have the best news on earth...that they have the answer to the world's problems...and yet often our churches don't live or work as if those things are true. We're too possessive of small things, and too casual about great ones. Too defensive of our interests, and too often ignoring God.

And that's what the church in first-century Corinth was like. It was young, confident, full of life—and just as full of problems. What would God say to them? What did they need to be excited by, to listen to, to learn? How did they need to live and work together as God's people?

The seven studies in this Good Book Guide open up the first half of the letter of 1 Corinthians for groups and individuals. They will help you to hear the message God had for His church in Corinth—the messageGod still has for His church today.

Leader's Guide included.

Mark Dever is Senior Pastor of Capitol Hill Baptist Church in Washington, D.C. and Executive Director for 9Marks Ministries.
