Gifts and Ministries

Moore College faculty contribute to an annual School of Theology, attended by graduates of the College and others. The pattern in recent years has been to focus on the interpretation of a particular biblical book in one year and to develop a biblical or theological topic in the next year. In 2010, Paul’s First Letter to the Corinthians was examined and the papers have been published recently as The Wisdom of the Cross. Exploring 1 Corinthians Today, edited by Brian Rosner (Nottingham, Apollos, 2011). 1 Corinthians is often regarded as his makeshift response to random problems in a messy church. This stimulating volume argues for, and undertakes, a more coherent reading of the letter, in the hope of providing a more compelling and theologically rich interpretation and a clearer apprehension of its relevance to the church today. My own contribution is entitled ‘Enriched in every way’: Gifts and Ministries in 1 Corinthians.
