Paul's Approach to the Cultural Conflict in Corinth

A socio-historical study

By Johannes Wessels

The problem of cultural conflict in congregations have been a serious challenge to the church throughout its history. Many approaches to tackling the problem of cultural intolerance and tensions have often been quite pragmatic in nature, without the presence of a solid biblical foundation or pastoral model. In this book Paul's approach as a slave-leader, emptying himself in analogy of Christ's own kenosis is thoroughly discussed, and posed as a biblical approach and solution to handling this very complex and contentious issue in churches, especially in the context of Botswana. Johannes Wessels is a Post-Doctoral Fellow at the North-West University, and has been a pastor in various cultural contexts in Southern Africa.
