Bible scholar D. A. Carson unpacks 2 Corinthians 10-13, Paul's call for us to embrace discipline and obedience, as well as his thoughts on the nature of spiritual boasting and false leadership in the church. Through Paul we explore the struggles, opportunities, and intentions of a Christian under fire, journeying with him as he seeks to guide the Corinthian church and speak to us as well.
