The book is meant to give a literal exposition of 1 Corinthians and its author, i.e., Paul the Apostle. The specific and the supporting arguments of each unit vividly depict the corrupted religious life setting of the Corinthian congregation and Paul's indication of the irregularities both in terms of their social and religious life and for a holy living.
Though the present work is not a verse-by-verse exposition of the text, the author has artistically addressed the different matters of concern that Paul stated in his letter which he faced in the church, and has given an extensive and profound elucidation about it. A careful reading of the present work will help everyone to understand its original background and to be away from any kind of interpretational misconceptions. Most importantly, the book is a helpful guideline to draw applications to deal with the present perils of the church coherently. There is no doubt that the author could successfully explicate the sound doctrinal regulations Paul gives to the Body of Christ.
