Details

For hundreds of years Christendom has been blessed with Bible commentaries written by great men of God who were highly respected for their godly walk and their insight into spiritual truth. The Crossway Classic Commentary Series, carefully adapted for maximum understanding and usefulness, presents the very best work on individual Bible books for today's believers. The apostle Paul's epistles to the church at Corinth are masterpieces of spiritual truth applied to crisis within the church—crises of both belief and practice. In his second letter to the Corinthians, the most personal and heart-wrenchingly honest of all his epistles, Paul commends the value of earthly trials—God's power at work in our weakness; inner renewal despite outward suffering; eternal treasures—that resoundingly testifies to God's faithfulness in adversity. Whether used for supplementary reading or for careful study, it will prove profitable to every follower of Christ who opens his or her heart to its gems.

Author Bio

Charles Hodge (1797–1898), an American Presbyterian theologian, was ordained in 1821, and taught at Princeton for almost his whole life. In 1825 he founded the Biblical Repository and Princeton Review, and during 40 years was its editor, and the principal contributor to its pages. He received the degree of D.D. from Rutgers College in 1834, and that of LL.D. from Washington College, Pennsylvania, in 1864. In 1840 Dr. Hodge was transferred to the chair of didactic theology, retaining still, however, the department of New Testament exegesis, the duties of which he continued to discharge until his death.
