Ivar Vegge argues that Paul, in line with ancient moral philosophers, letter-writers, and rhetoricians, used idealized praise in 2 Cor 1-9, and particularly in 2 Cor 7:5-16, and blame or threats, especially in 2 Cor 10-13, to promote reconciliation between the Corinthians and Paul as apostle.

What was it like in the time of Paul? What really happened in his conversion and what did it lead to? What was going on in the cities of the Empire and how did Paul tailor his message to the needs of the particular churches? IN THE DAYS OF PAUL seeks to answer these questions, give an outline of Paul's teaching, and deal with the world of Paul in a manner which is easily understood. Starting with Paul's background in both a Jewish and Greek world, Anthony J. Tambasco then describes the life and times in each of the major cities visited by Paul and sketches Paul's teaching in these cities. Understanding Paul's world brings insight into his message and helps to clarify the frequent misunderstandings of Paul's views on women, marriage, sex, and slavery. IN THE DAYS OF PAUL brightens Paul's personality and breathes life into the people around him. With a companion volume, IN THE DAYS OF JESUS, this book will serve as an important background text for introducing major works of the New Testament: The Gospels about Jesus and the Epistles of Paul. IN THE DAYS OF PAUL also provides an excellent introduction to Paul for undergraduates, discussion groups, and adult education groups. Anthony J. Tambasco is Professor of Theology at Georgetown University, Washington, D.C. He is also the author of Theology of Atonement and Paul's Vision of Christianity and editor of Bible on Suffering: Social and Political Implications (2001).

In the Lord’s recovery during the past five hundred years the church’s knowledge of the Lord and His truth has been continually progressing. This monumental and classical work by Brother Witness Lee builds upon and is a further development of all that the Lord has revealed to His church in the past centuries. It is filled with the revelation concerning the processed Triune God, the living Christ, the life-giving Spirit, the experience of life, and the definition and practice of the church. In this set Brother Lee has kept three basic principles that should rule and govern every believer in their interpretation, development, and expounding of the truths contained in the Scriptures. The first principle is that of the Triune God dispensing Himself into His chosen and redeemed people; the second principle is that we should interpret, develop, and expound the truths contained in the Bible with Christ for the church; and the third governing principle is Christ, the Spirit, life, and the church. No other study or exposition of the New Testament conveys the life nourishment or ushers the reader into the divine revelation of God’s holy Word according to His New Testament economy as this one does.

The thesis of this book is that 1 and 2 Corinthians are closely related; that Paul faces the same opponents in both letters; that the letter written with many tears referred to in 2 Corinthians is 1 Corinthians; and that there is no need to posit an intermediate visit or letter between the two canonical letters. Throughout the two letters Paul implements a consistent pastoral strategy, and an understanding of this strategy explains the difference in tone between various sections of the two letters. There is no need for theories of partition.
