The Lectio Continua Expository Commentary (1 Corinthians)
by Kim Riddlebarger
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).
Dr. Riddlebarger's new Commentary on First Corinthians is available in the church bookstore. Purchase your copy now for $28.00.
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!
