“But we have this treasure in clay jars, so that it may be made clear that this extraordinary power belongs to God and does not come from us.” (2 Corinthians 4:7)
Readers of Second Corinthians are likely to agree that Peter was right about Paul’s letters: “There are some things in them [that are] hard to understand” (2 Peter 3:16). This accessible Bible Study will help to explain some of those hard things, especially by focusing on what is delightful and inspiring about the biblical book. In 2 Corinthians we find promises of a glorious life after death, interesting and thought-provoking figures of speech describing followers of Christ, powerful stewardship messages, an amazing example of humility and proper respect, and much more. By the end of this study it will be easy to see why the folk at Corinth so loved and revered Paul that they collected this letter and others to save for future generations of believers.

Problem Of Pain$17.99Add to cart
For centuries Christians have been tormented by one question above all — If God is good and all-powerful, why does he allow his creatures to suffer pain? C. S. Lewis sets out to disentangle this knotty issue but wisely adds that in the end no intellectual solution can dispense with the necessity for patience and courage.
