Description

 

The book of 2 Corinthians is the most self-disclosing of all of Paul's letters. This letter lifts the lid off the challenges and complexities of the pastoral ministry of the mature apostle and that in the contemporary church. In this letter he integrates the nature of the Christian life with the realities of Christian ministry. Paul discusses the effects of a recent life-threatening experience and reveals how a sense of personal inadequacy in the face of the present difficulties has been matched be God's comfort, grace and power. He writes about this to a congregation that is not amenable to his return. These lectures will benefit those who are preparing for pastoral ministry by helping them to understand the interior nature of Paul's later life and ministry for their own edification and support. Lectures include:

  • Reasons for Suffering and Forgiveness
  • Treasure in Earthen Vessels
  • Reconciling the Church to God
  • Reasons for Giving to Foreigners
  • Ministers as "Weak" in Christ
