9781850788935: Carson Classics: From Triumphalism to Maturity: An Exposition of 2 Corinthians

While 2 Corinthians 10-13 may be Paul's most misunderstood and misinterpreted passage, these chapters without question provide some of the clearest insights into what is known about the person of Paul. Paul used very passionate and pointed language to make his case. Some might argue that Paul went too far in his self-defence and even reacted in an unchristian way, but Carson approaches this passage as 'a marvellous case study in Christian leadership and maintenance of Christian values and priorities'. In the midst of the accusations, Paul strives to maintain not only his testimony but also and more importantly the pre-eminence of the cause of Christ. This book aptly reveals Paul's success in these tasks.
