Is your faith countercultural?
When he wrote his first epistle to the church in Corinth, Paul wanted to address two cultural issues that the Christians in the city were wrestling with: prosperity and entertainment. He urged the young believers struggling in the midst of Graeco–Roman society to live lives shaped by Christ. Believers today are not immune to these same worldly temptations the Corinthian church was facing.
In Transformed in Christ: 1 Corinthians, Ron Elsdon and William Olhausen show us how Paul uses the cross to define the distinctive patterns of life and behavior which Christians are called. The transformation that comes from cross–shaped wisdom is not a singular moment in a believer’s life, but a continual process of refinement. The result is a living, countercultural faith marked by discernment, wisdom, and love.
