2 Corinthians (Preaching The Word)(Hardcover)
During Paul’s ministry, Corinth was a newly rebuilt, bustling, important city in the Roman Empire. It was a place full of pride, individualism, wealth, and religious pluralism. Sound familiar? Our contemporary culture has much in common with ancient Corinth, thus 2 Corinthians bears astounding relevance for us today. Paul delivers powerful theology that turns both the ancient Roman world and our own upside-down as he challenges us all to live counterculturally. In this accessible commentary, Pastor R. Kent Hughes carefully examines this second letter from the apostle Paul to the church in Corinth, providing rich biblical insight for today’s church.
