Publisher Description

First Corinthians 8:1-11:1 Paul provides principles for whether and to what extent the Corinthian Christians could eat meat sacrificed to idols. These principles are valuable for Christians today as they also seek to make difficult lifestyle choices. Part One contains my interpretation of First Corinthians 8:1-11:1. This interpretation provides the basis for the applications of the message of First Corinthians 8:1-11:1. The chapters in Part Two are based on papers written by my students in which they apply Paul's principles to tough decisions about if and to what extent Christians can participate in cultural practices from their context. These chapters illustrate how the principles that Paul provides in First Corinthians 8:1-11:1 can be applied to a variety of tough lifestyle choices. These papers are very culture specific and may seem quite foreign to Western readers. I have included my own paper on movie-watching in America to provide a bridge for Western readers to help them see how these principles can be applied in a more familiar context.
