Locating the theme of reconciliation in the complex world of diversity, this article affirms and revisits reconciliation as a theological key to deal with the complex reality of our world. Recognizing the possibility of deep diversity of the first century Corinth, the author states that Paul's main purpose in writing to the Corinthians was to help them relate with "the other" within the Christian community and with him. The author then went on to draw what can be learned from Paul's plea to reconcile with God and with each other in 2 Corinthians 5:14–21. In his ministry of reconciliation, the former Pharisee of Pharisees crossed new boundaries as evident, for instance, in his affirmation of women as his co-ministers. Secondly, Paul tried to persuade others to join him in reflecting the meaning of their call to be ministers of reconciliation in concrete situations. Did Paul succeed in his ministry of reconciliation? It is clear from his letters that he was not successful. We will also encounter obstacles and difficulties, but we must hold on to God's reconciling ministry given to us as a gift, plead the author.
