Endorsements & Reviews-

"Citing recent studies that point to a breakdown of community in modern American life, Prof. Vander Broek turns to the advice Paul gave to the ancient Christian community in Corinth that was undergoing remarkably similar problems. Writing principally for pastors and educated lay persons, the author demonstrates how careful attention to a biblical book can yield rich resources for modern church life. Written in a clear and readable style, the book will prove useful to congregations seeking to restore and strengthen the bonds of Christian community."
--Paul J. Achtemeier, Union Theological Seminary (Virginia)

"Vander Broek draws upon his knowledge of both the Corinthian church of the first century and the mainline Protestant churches of the twenty-first century and finds a common thread. Vander Broek recognizes that both Paul and artists of today have a vision of an intimate community beyond the barriers that humans create for themselves. In this book, he brings the work of a first-century Paul and twenty-first-century poets, painters, and writers together and shows us how they attempted to realize their vision of community. It is fresh and though provoking."
--Thomas A. Boogaart, Western Theological Seminary
