In 2018, Thomas Schreiner’s Tyndale commentary on 1 Corinthians was published. We’ve released this volume (and 10 others!) this week. Also, we’ve taken an excerpt out of Shriner’s work to share with you here on the blog. Below you’ll find an overview on Corinthians 15:1-58 and verse-by-verse commentary on verses…

The winter is so dreary in Spokane (where our office is located). The sun rarely makes an appearance. By the time March rolls around we are all desperate for blue skies, warm weather, getting outside and out-of-town—SUMMER. Praise the Lord that it’s almost here! Although summer is a fantastic for…
