If you have been looking for a balanced study of the themes of divorce and re-marriage, the ministry of women, the place of glossolalia in the modern church, along with an exploration of other riches found in Paul's wonderful First letter to the Corinthians, then you are holding it in your hands right now! Ken Chant manages to encompass all these within the pages of this one book, yet each theme is sufficiently well-covered to satisfy the demands of most readers. The work is scholarly, well-researched, yet very readable, and is packed with insights and gems of wisdom, drawn from the author's 60 years of ministry as a pastor, writer, teacher, and preacher.
Some of the other themes dealt with are incest; the church and the legal system; the eucharist; the question of miracles and a charismatic church; the resurrection of Christ and of the dead at the end of the age; and the question of tithing.
Treasures indeed! This is a book to read and to go back to again and again. It would be a worthy addition to anyone's library.
