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.

Review 1 for A Model of Christian Maturity: An Exposition of 2 Corinthians 10-13
Date:February 21, 2008
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.
