1 Corinthians Duane Warden
In this letter to first-century Christians in Corinth, Paul addressed many questions which, with slight variations, continue to trouble the church today. Division, immorality, doctrinal confusion, and worldliness plagued this congregation; and one root of their conflicts—pride—is common among us still. Duane Warden's verse-by-verse study tackles difficult issues in the biblical text and draws practical application for Christians living in our own time. Paul knew that the key to overcoming congregational struggles is love. In his eloquent and familiar discussion in chapter 13, the apostle defined and described the kind of love that is needed to make the church what Christ wants it to be. (530 pages)

Galatians Jack McKinney
Paul's letter to the Christians in Galatia was designed to protect the young churches from the teachers who wanted the Gentiles to be circumcised in order to be saved. Honoring this demand would destroy their faith in Christ as their only means of salvation. The true significance of the gospel message is emphasized in this epistle of Paul. In Christ, all are saved equally. As brothers and sisters, we are to worship and serve together, without regard for dividing lines such as ethnicity and economic status. Jack McKinney used his vast background in Greek to shape an extremely valuable commentary for Christians today. (452 pages)
