 About the Book 

When Paul came to Corinth he found a culture emerging from the ashes of Roman power. As Julius Caesar rebuilt the fallen city he brought Roman culture to this Greek community. Likewise, Pauls message of salvation in Jesus rebuilt the fallen lives of people dominated by a culture of power. This power was displayed in violence, discrimination, sexuality, and spirituality. As this city emerged from the ashes of humiliation the church emerged, by Gods hand, from of the humiliation of Jesus and the cross.Today the church emerges in a culture of power, humiliation, and fear. Pauls challenge for the church is to be mature and practice unconditional love. This love is permanent. This love develops and empowers others. This love causes us to be in relationship with God and others. Through this love Gods people see face to face. The church can emerge to radiate love, peace, and empowerment.
