Weakness Is The Way
Life With Christ Our Strength
by J I Packer
Publisher:IVP(Inter Varsity Press)
This is a helpful series of meditations on verses drawn from 2 Corinthians. The aim of the book is to illustrate the truth of 2 Corinthians 12:10 "when I am weak then I am strong". He shows that the way of true spiritual strength is the humble way of consciously recognising that we are weak in spiritual things. It is only in Christ that we are strong.
The three main chapters apply this truth to three areas: the Christian's calling, the Christian's giving, the Christian's hoping.
Mr Packer writes in his usual clear, pastoral way. He especially draws on his own experience of getting older and physically weaker. Those who know they are weak will find encouragement here. Those who do not realise they are weak will come to see the deep spiritual truth of Paul's words. This book is well worth reading.
