1 & 2 Corinthians
Distinguished scholar and author Stanley M. Horton shares this commentary of the Scriptures of 1 and 2 Corinthians. It’s a perfect reference and supplement for Sunday School teachers, eager students, and for pastors preparing sermons. In addition to a strong emphasis on edification of the church through spiritual gifts, Paul’s letters to the church at Corinth deal directly with problems facing us today. Horton takes an in-depth look at the history, customs, word meanings, and contemporary application of Paul’s writings to the Corinthian church.
I’ll give the author a star for actually writing a book (a feat in itself). But in terms of content, this commentary lacks substance. Here is the product of a systematic theologian who views the text through the lens of pre-formed dogma, rather than honest exegetical research. This commentary is last on the priority list, and does not honor Paul’s original meaning.
