2 Corinthians     (1997, 1998)

Paul wrote this letter to prepare the Corinthian Church for his final visit. They had been recently dazzled by remarkably gifted preachers and workers of miracles. So, Paul addresses the issue of how to discern the true message and messenger from the false. He also gives special attention to the vexing question of power in the Christian's experience. Essential subjects for Christians today!
