The Book of Second Corinthians: Grace Under Siege
by Dan Mitchell, Mal Couch & Ed Hindson
What Is Your Game Plan For Living?
Like a motivational speaker or coach in the locker room at halftime, Paul addreses the Corinthian believers as a friend, a mentor and an apostle. At a point where others were trying to manipulate them as a sect of Judaism, denying the Gospel of grace, Paul's passion and zeal are more apparent in this book than in any of his other writings.
Today, this struggle is not for Christianity to be unqiue from Judaism, but to be unique among the melting pot of religions in the world. And that which sets us apart, the grace of God to send His Son to die on the cross, has never been under more siege.
Paul had declared the truths of the Gospel, but others came to Corinth after him, and sought to undermine all that he had taught. The Christians in Jerusalem were in dire need of help. The false teachers were claiming that Paul was not even an apostle. Rumors and half truths were common rhetoric. In order to defend the truth, Paul had to defend the call God had placed upon him, and all the things that call had led him to endure.
Dan Mitchell bring's Paul's words into focus to challenge every believer to defend the truth, to care for those in need, and to work together in unity to accomplish the goal of presenting Christ to a dying, needy world.
