    This is the second Carson book we ve used for a weekly Bible study It has been excellent The book reveals Paul s heart, his thorn in the flesh, chronicles his specific sufferings, models his style of spiritual leadership, and warns of false leadership in the church.I understood the directive and process of church discipline, but this book stated the key Only if the body as a whole makes the offenders feel the sting of reproach and the shame of loving but firm ostracism will the step prove ef This is the second Carson book we ve used for a weekly Bible study It has been excellent The book reveals Paul s heart, his thorn in the flesh, chronicles his specific sufferings, models his style of spiritual leadership, and warns of false leadership in the church.I understood the directive and process of church discipline, but this book stated the key Only if the body as a whole makes the offenders feel the sting of reproach and the shame of loving but firm ostracism will the step prove effective Christians are especially open to the kind of cunning deceit that combines the language of faith and religion with the content of self interest and flattery The Christian church needs a littleboth of Paul s discernment and intollerance Paul s apostolic ministry is not discharged with aloof detachment but with flaming zeal, profound compassion, evangelistic fervor, and a father s heart

    ClarifingA great work on an interesting portion of Paul s letters to the church at Corinth The author went a bit deeper than he promised in the book s introduction.

  3. Zach Hollifield says:

    An excellent and thorough walk through of 2 Corinthians 10 13 Carson presents helpful background for the context of the chapters which is invaluable But perhaps the most beneficial part of the book is its look into Paul s pastoral heart for the Corinthians, his style of leadership, and what Christian maturity truly looks like.

  4. Stephen Willcox says:

    I loved this commentary on chapters 10 13 It s a shame Carson has not done one on the whole letter Carson s work on the Corinthians context in the first 50 some pages is worth the cost of the book highly recommend this book to a pastor s library.

  5. Jun Sung Lee says:

    My introduction to Dr Carson s works The chain of reasoning he links systematically, sentence after sentence, to resurrect Paul s thought process and the nuances of his aching heart for the embroiled Corinthian Church is itself a staggering work of love.

  6. David says:

    Wow D.A Carson delivers again I was very convicted by this book of what a model of true christian maturity is by exegeting from 2 cor 10 13 Paul is the ultimate example and I learned much about Paul and my great faults by reading this book.David

  7. Corey says:

    Great look into the heart of the apostle Paul Came away with a greater appreciation for the context of the Corinthian correspondence as well as the maturity of Paul as a Christian leader, especially in how he responded to the challenges of the detractors at Corinth.

    D.A Carson of course it was good 1
