In 2 Corinthians 2-7, Paul writes to the church at Corinth, urging them to embrace the 'weak' ministry of Gospel proclamation, to partner with 'weak' Christians, and to boast in 'weak' ministers. The contrast in Corinth was between authentic ministry that changes the heart, and false ministry that was only 'on the face'. The church had been infiltrated by some who had grown weary of the message of the cross: whose boast was in outward appearance.
The pattern was there in Corinth, and in every age it will be present in some form.
Just as Paul urged the church at Corinth, so too do William Taylor and David Dargue urge current and future gospel ministers to stick with and boast in the seemingly weak ministry of gospel proclamation against the false 'on the face' ministry of contemporary culture. In Style or Substance? Taylor and Dargue provide skillful exposition and sound biblical instruction to identify five areas within our contemporary setting against which the defense of authentic, gospel centered ministry is crucial. This text forwards a reminder of the nature and power of authentic gospel ministry—in weakness, God's power is exhibited.
