This year BYU Studies is again sponsoring classes at Campus Education Week, August 21–25, 2017, on BYU campus in Provo, Utah. Whether or not you are able to attend, we invite you to read the articles on which the presentations will be based.

Paul's First Epistle to the Corinthians by Richard D. Draper and Michael D. Rhodes, part of the New Testament Commentary book series. Currently in eBook format, the print version—and an updated eBook—will be available around the time of Education Week. An excerpt from the book is available at byuntc.org.

Richard Draper will be giving his presentation "A More Excellent Way: Insights from Paul's First Letter to the Corinthians" Aug. 22-25 at 3:10 in 1102 JKB as part of the From the New Testament Commentary series. Julie M. Smith will also be presenting "Hidden in Plain Sight: Treasures from the Gospel of Mark" as part of the series, Aug. 22-25 at 3:10 in 2107 JKB.

Book Summary:

It is a commentary of every verse of 1 Corinthians and examines in depth the rich theology of grace, the Atonement, the gifts of the Spirit, the sacrament, love, and resurrection of the dead along with other important doctrines. Those who read this volume will find it enhances faith, hope, understanding of key principles and doctrines, and bears a strong witness of the Lord Jesus Christ and a clear elucidation of his gospel as preserved by the Apostle Paul.

Paul wrote for a group of early saints who struggled against some of the same issues that Christians face today. This commentary strives to highlight the ways that 1 Corinthians is a relevant message for our day.
