Cross and Christian Ministry: Leadership Lessons from 1 Corinthians

Carson, D. A.

Like the Corinthian Christians, the modern church can become enamored with form and show at the expense of content and truth. Based on exegesis of 1 Corinthians, this small book is a thoughtful and passionate call for leaders to reevaluate their approach to ministry, and align it with the cross of Christ rather than worldly glamor.

Product Description

Is the cross truly the center of your ministry?
Today we commonly see images of the cross adorning churches, dangling from necklaces, and gleaming from lapels. Yet the image that is so sanitized for us today was grotesque and abhorrent to those living in the first century. It was a symbol of evil, torture, and shame. It is this realistic and horrifying view of the cross that should call us to Christian ministry and compel us to share the Good News of Christ's triumph over death.

Through his exposition of 1 Corinthians, D. A. Carson presents a comprehensive view of what the death of Christ means in preaching and ministering to God's people. He confronts the issues of factionalism, servant-leadership, shaping “world” Christians, and the source of knowledge in order to help Christian leaders learn principles for dynamic, cross-centered worship.
