In a world that idolizes celebrity and success, 2 Corinthians remains one of our most vital and significant reminders that it is not human strength but God’s power that paves the way for victory in the spiritual realm. In this accessible and relevant book, Jonathan Lamb explores key lessons for authentic Christian ministry, including the role of suffering in strengthening our dependence on God, the necessity of both discipline and forgiveness in our church communities, and the centrality of union with Christ for all true Christian witness. Strength in Weakness will prove a valuable resource for pastors, small group leaders, and anyone seeking to grow in reliance on God. It provides a variety of tools for personal study or group teaching, including an introduction with practical suggestions for how to use the text, clear headings for easy navigation, and questions for reflection and discussion at the end of each chapter. Information boxes with further background on context, key themes, and important points of doctrine are also provided for those desiring to dig deeper into related topics.
