The establishment of the Church of Jesus Christ in such an area is another proof of the power of the gospel. Paul wrote in Romans 5:20, "But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound." Never was this more true than in Corinth. Sin abounded on every hand, but the grace of God, as proclaimed in the gospel, took hold of needy hearts. The Apostle Paul further declared in Romans, "For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek" (Romans I: 16). Wherever the gospel is proclaimed, you may be sure that God will use His Word to the saving of souls.

Living Wisely is not easy in a sinful and materialistic generation, plagued by many problems similar to those confronting first century Christians. Corinth, a center of culture and learning, politically and commercially important, was also wicked and corrupt. And conditions haven't changed much in the last nineteen hundred years. Paul penned his first letter to the Corinthians to provide - guided by the Holy Spirit - divine wisdom for Christians. This challenging volume highlights the Apostle Paul's practical counsel which provides for us, as for the early church, that "wisdom from above" so essential for our walk with the Lord.

Nor onLy was the city of Corinth the capital of Achaia in Paul's day, but in political and commercial importance it surpassed all other cities in that part of the world. Though famous for its commercial prestige, it was also recognized as a center of culture and learning. Along with this, it was a city of great wealth; but it was also known for its gross wickedness and corruption. There was a familiar phrase spoken in Paul's day: "To live like a Corinthian." Everyone knew this meant to live in ease and licentiousness. To live like a Corinthian was to dwell in comfort while giving way to the lustsof the flesh.
