Today, we commonly see images of the cross adorning churches, dangling from necklaces, and gleaming from lapels. Yet the image that is so sanitised 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-centred worship.
