About the Lectio Continua Series of expository commentaries:
The Lectio Continua Expository Commentary on the New Testament is a new exegetical commentary series published by Tolle Lege Press. The series, edited by Jon D. Payne, will be authored by sixteen ministers from five countries representing ten different Reformed denominations. The Lectio Continua Expository Commentary seeks to be rigorously exegetical, God-centered, redemptive-historical, sin-exposing, Gospel-trumpeting and teeming with practical application. It aims to encourage ministers, elders, seminarians and interested laypeople to rediscover the profound spiritual benefits of systematic expository preaching; that is, the faithful preaching of the “whole counsel of God” -- verse by verse, chapter by chapter, book by book. It also endeavors, by the power of the Spirit, to help Christ’s kingdom disciples to “grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ” (II Peter 3:18).
Endorsements of My Commentary:
Kim Riddlebarger, a trusted pastor-scholar, and one of the premier exegetes and expositors of our day, has given the Church a gift with this excellent commentary on First Corinthians. In these fine expositions we not only learn about the thorny and complex challenges that faced the church at Corinth, we are also taught the Spirit-inspired diagnoses and remedies dispensed by the Apostle Paul–– powerful, Christ-centered truth that applies as much today as it did in first century Corinth. I commend this volume to the Church with pastoral urgency and absolute confidence."

Having shared and sat under the ministry of Kim Riddlebarger for many years, I am delighted to see the fruit of his faithful labors reach a wider audience. Combining attention to exegetical detail with decades of pastoral experience, this commentary will reward generously with its unique insights into this wonderful epistle.

First Corinthians is a book that has long been neglected by Reformed commentators. That is why I am so glad that Kim Riddlebarger has provided the church with this exegetically-sensitive and doctrinally-sound exposition. Riddlebarger handles the letter’s difficult issues with care and pastoral sensitivity. In addition, he models for the Church what faithful exposition should be. This second installment in the Lectio Continua series is a welcome addition to any Christian’s shelf!
