Strength In Weakness

An Introduction to 2 Corinthians

Jonathan Lamb


In a world that idolizes celebrity and success, 2 Corinthians remains one of our most vital and significant reminders that it is not human strength but God’s power that paves the way for victory in the spiritual realm. In this accessible and relevant book, Jonathan Lamb explores key lessons for authentic Christian ministry, including the role of suffering in strengthening our dependence on God, the necessity of both discipline and forgiveness in our church communities, and the centrality of union with Christ for all true Christian witness.

Strength in Weakness will prove a valuable resource for pastors, small group leaders, and anyone seeking to grow in reliance on God. It provides a variety of tools for personal study or group teaching, including an introduction with practical suggestions for how to use the text, clear headings for easy navigation, and questions for reflection and discussion at the end of each chapter. Information boxes with further background on context, key themes, and important points of doctrine are also provided for those desiring to dig deeper into related topics.

To teach things simply you need to understand them profoundly, and that is certainly the case when it comes to the writing of this volume. With incisive observation, pastoral wisdom and careful attention to the original context, this will be a terrific help to you as you wrestle with this tear-stained letter.—Jonathan Gemmell (Director of Conferences and Resources, The Proclamation Trust)

Jonathan Lamb’s commentary will be my “go to” resource for 2 Corinthians. The headings themselves are sermon outlines in waiting.—Jeremy McQuoid, DMin (Teaching Pastor, Deeside Christian Fellowship Church, Aberdeen, UK)

Every leader must be a person of integrity in all their relationships. I highly recommend this book by Jonathan Lamb, which addresses the challenge of upholding integrity and shows us how we can find strength in weakness through Christ.—Rev Dr Patrick Fung (General Director, OMF International)

In a very clear and faithful manner, without avoiding the scholarly debates, Jonathan Lamb opens the book of 2 Corinthians with such skilfulness and simplicity that its message comes alive today, stirring the mind, gripping the heart, and challenging the reader to godly living and authentic biblical ministry in an age of showmanship.—Emeka Egbo (Associate Director for Africa, Langham Preaching)
