Description

In every age, Christians experience pressure to embrace contemporary culture. In Corinth, the church had been infiltrated by some who had grown weary of the message of the cross: whose boast was in outward appearance. In 2 Corinthians 2-7,Paul writes into this setting, urging the Corinthians then, and us today, to embrace the 'weak' ministry of Gospel proclamation, to partner with 'weak' Christians, and to boast in 'weak' ministers. It is in this weakness that God's power is exhibited. Nothing could be more opposite to our celebrity culture.

Endorsements

This is a readable book. It contrasts the boastful but shallow facade of Paul's rivals at Corinth with the deeper substance of apostolic gospel ministry. It is a timely reminder that the problems at Corinth are still alive and causing as much havoc now, as then. In the words of the authors, 'Paul is adamant that we should stick with the real thing, for only the unchanged message ... will have the power to change the heart and work lasting change. Everything else is surface froth' (p.63).

Evangelical Times

In an age in which substance often gives way to style, we urgently need teaching like this, which builds convictions about the nature and power of authentic gospel ministry and spurs us to stick with it.
