The apostle Paul warns believers to steer away from spiritual pride, showmanship, and lofty speeches in the church. Yet nearly two millennia later, the Christian church is still fraught with flashy and fancy signs and sermons, spiritual boasting, and religious showoffs.
In A Model of Christian Maturity, Bible scholar D. A. Carson unpacks 2 Corinthians 10-13 verse-by-verse to get at the heart and mind of Paul on the subject of spiritual leadership in the church. What does it really mean to be a leader of a body of believers? What does Paul say--and how does he embody the principles he speaks of?
This book is ideal for pastors, students, and everyday Christians who are looking for the greater virtue in humility and meekness over leadership and power. A must-have for a library on Christian character.
