Cutting Ties with Darkness
John D. Barry Craig G. Bartholomew
OverviewPaul wrote 2 Corinthians with a heavy heart, wrestling to maintain his relationship with the young church that he established.
The way that Paul handled this painful situation provides an example for us today. When should we reconcile, and when should we walk away? How do we cut ties with darkness--whether in ourselves or in others?
In this volume from the Transformative Word series, edited by Craig Bartholomew, John D. Barry explores how we deal with such scars in light of Jesus' example.
