During Paul’s ministry, Corinth was a newly rebuilt, wealthy, and influential city in the Roman Empire. Contemporary western culture has much in common with the ancient church in Corinth, so the relevance of this book for Christians today is very apparent. In this commentary on 2 Corinthians, Pastor R. Kent Hughes carefully examines this letter from the apostle Paul to the church in Corinth, continuing to provide rich biblical insight for the body of Christ.
