Corinth, a city of wealth, perversion and iniquity, harbored early Christians living amidst the corruption of the time. How did they "walk the walk" through the myriad temptations, cultural icons and sexual beckonings considered "normal" in their society? How shall I do it today? William Barclay takes us through the journey of faith and sometimes folloy facing early Corinthian believers.

from "The Letters To the Corinthians", William Barclay, 1954

"The proof of Christianity lay in its power.  It could take the dregs of humanity and make them into men.  It could take men lost to shame and make them sons of God."  re: 1 Corinthians 6:9-11

"Men judge a message by the life and character of the man who brings it ... "  re: 1 Corinthians 9:1-14

"The man who can never see anything but his own point of view and who never makes any attempt to understand the mind and heart of others, will never make a pastor or an evangelist or even a friend"  re: 1 Corinthians 9:15-23

"We have to discipline our minds; it is one of the tragedies of life that men may refuse to think until they become incapable of thinking."  re: 1 Corinthians 9:24-27
