David Prior, in this fresh and gripping exposition, writes first as a pastor. His conviction is that 1 Corinthians is uniquely a tract for our times. His aim is that churches will recognize the problems and tensions inherent in being God's people in the increasingly urban world today, and not be ignorant of the true spirituality that is the work of the Holy Spirit. He wishes for each of them as a body to grow to express the total Lordship of Christ. David Prior is a long-time pastor and lecturer.
