Mr. Ironside has done it again. Or at least he did 70 years ago. The book 1 and 2 Corinthians is a commentary on… 1 and 2 Corinthians. Unlike the other commentaries that Ironside wrote, this one does not hold anything back. How could Ironside, when he wrote 39 lectures on 1 Corinthians, and another 22 on 2 Corinthians? That means 61 chapters of commentary on two Bible books that you never even new existed. Do not lie to yourself. You know all the MVPs in professional hockey and their stats, but opening the Bible is to hard. It is ok. You are not alone. If you were not then why would Ironside have written, let alone published, lectures on the subject?
The letters to the Corinthians were written by Paul two millennia ago. This does not mean that the books are outdated. It means that for two thousand years people have thought they were awesome. People have only grudgingly accepted that hockey is a sport for a few decades, and not everyone at that. So put down your nerd stick from the Canadian flash in the pan and read a few books. Or at the very least play the game and stop memorizing stuff about it so that you can pretend that you have played hockey. I mean that is just silly.
