To craft informed sermons, pastors scour commentaries that often deal more with minutia than the main point. Or they turn to devotional commentaries, which may contain exegetical weaknesses. The Teach the Text Commentary Series bridges this gap by utilizing the best of biblical scholarship and providing the information a pastor needs to communicate the text effectively. By keeping the discussion of each carefully selected preaching unit to six pages of focused commentary, the volumes in this series allow pastors to quickly grasp the big idea and key themes of each passage of Scripture. Each unit of the commentary includes the big idea and key themes of the passage; sections dedicated to understanding, teaching, and illustrating the text; and full-color illustrations, maps, and photos.

In his commentary on 1 Corinthians, Preben Vang shows how Paul's experience with the church in Corinth is so remarkably applicable to the church in a postmodern Western context, expertly translating the issues of Paul's day into our contemporary situation.

I have become a collector of commentaries ever since my seminary days in the 1990s. As such, I am only going to recommend the best overall commentary for each book of the Bible on this site. I like several books in the Teach the Text series as resources to consult when teaching or preaching through all or sections of a biblical book. My first exposure to the series may have been Vang, and he did not disappoint. Accessible and applicable are the words I would use, and it stands out as a volume the preacher/teacher would benefit from on 1 Corinthians. If you can find a used copy, it is worth also owning the contribution by James Arthur Orr and William Walther in the Anchor Bible series.
