Wisdom, Knowledge, and Spirituality in Self-defense
A Rhetorical Exegetical Study of 1 Corinthians 1–6
Imprint: Wipf and Stock
"Kissi’s carefully focused, text-based study explores Paul’s self-defense in his first letter to the Corinthians from a rhetorical vantage point, noting the interplay between three central, discursive aspects. Working carefully through the biblical text, this engaging investigation opens up the Corinthian situation and context with renewed focus to central Pauline notions, and suggests Paul’s enduring significance in the modern day context."
—Jeremy Punt, Stellenbosch University, South Africa
“A relevant book in these times, when rivalry amongst church leaders and members, threaten the church’s stability. This book draws from the experience of the Corinthian Church in the New Testament times to provide informed approaches to deal with such divisive tendencies in the contemporary church. The author expertly examines the Corinthian passages and clarifies Paul’s thoughts that have remained puzzling to scholars. An exciting book for church leaders, theologians, scholars, and students of Scripture.”
