Product Description

Basing his insights on 2 Corinthians 10--13, Carson demonstrates that in a culture of exalted self-confidence, even the church can misunderstand the most important sign of true spiritual growth---humility. Explaining that Paul confronted the same problem in early congregations, he shows how believers today can grow spiritually in everyday life and adversity. (Previously titled From Triumphalism to Maturity.) 188 pages, softcover from Baker.

Publisher's Description

We live in a time when leadership and showmanship are seen as far greater virtues than humility and meekness. Even the church has often got it backward. And in Paul's second letter to the Corinthians, he confronts similar problems in the first-century church. D. A. Carson believes we can learn valuable lessons from Paul's letter about what it really means to be a mature Christian in the face of adversity. In A Model of Christian Maturity he takes the reader step by step through an exposition of 2 Corinthians 10-13 and then helps them apply these Scriptures to everyday life in the church. Perfect for pastors, students, and laypeople, this book highlights the power of weakness in the life of the Christian.

    This is truly a model of humble servanthood. Paul is my hero in serving the risen Lord and Savior. 2 Corinthians is known as the most difficult letter that Paul ever writes. Yet the heart of Paul's theology lays in this letter as well as in 1 Corinthians. Theology is what we bear in life. It is a theologia crucis--theology of the cross--since we bear the suffering of Christ on our flesh. Hence we may not boast our glory and success. Read this easy-to-read exposition, and you may measure up what it means to be servant of Christ, a slave of Christ. Thanks to Dr. Don Carson.
