Book Review: "The Troubled Church" by Darrin Yeager ~ a study in 1 Corinthians

As a pastor, I have spent years reading Bible commentaries.  Most of them fall into one of two categories: First is a verse by verse expository study that focuses on the original languages, and  the other is more of a devotional study that attempts to draw truth and application from the text.  To study both affords balance to our understanding of God’s Word.

Darrin Yeager offers a wonderful book that has the best of both worlds.  He offers a book that offers a comprehensive look at the culture, the problem being addresed, a verse by verse study, and a priceless application tool that reveals timeless truths for us to consider.  Mr. Yeager has skillfully managed to guide us through a very difficult and often misunderstood passage.  Mr. Yeager’s work has depth that will insure it is a valuable asset for many years to come.  

Mr. Yeager offers a resource that is user-friendly.  Pastor’s will benefit from the rich insights and applications offered in “A study in 1 Corinthians”.  Laypersons will find enlightenment using this book as a daily devotional. Paul commands us in 2 Timothy 2:15, “Study to show yourself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth”.
