WAKE FOREST, N.C. (BP)–“The Troubled Triumphant Church,” a pastoral and homiletical commentary on 1 Corinthians by Paige Patterson, is headed toward its fifth printing.
“People are regularly asking for Dr. Patterson’s commentary on 1 Corinthians,” said Waylan Owens, vice president for institution effectiveness and assessment at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary, where Patterson is president. “We decided that it was time to make it available again.”
Wipf and Stock will publish the book which will be available in October through Southeastern’s website (www.sebts.edu ).
“I am pleased that people seem to want the book,” Patterson said. “I suspect that whatever demand is there arises from the acute difficulties and the incredible opportunities that seem to exist in local churches today — much trouble and ultimate triumph.”
First published with Thomas Nelson in 1983, the commentary has sold more than 50,000 copies.
