Corinth was not only one of the most flourishing commercial centers of the ancient world, but also a symbol of vile debauchery. "In this hotbed of vice," writes William Barclay, "some of the greatest work of Paul was done." The apostle wrote to the church there, partly to bolster its resistance of sin and corruption, but equally to chide and give counsel about the contentions that were tearing it apart. In his endearing, simple, and illustrative manner, Barclay shows how the message that Paul communicated to the Corinthians continues to help us who live today in the midst of twenty-first century temptations.
