Item description for 2 Corinthians: A Guide for Reflection and Prayer (Daily Bible Commentary) by Aida Besancon Spencer...
Overview Paul's second letter to the young church at Corinth was forged in the heat of difficult circumstances. False teachers were challenging the apostle's authority, and Paul was forced to present a defense of the practice of church discipline for those who had strayed. Inhabiting one of the Roman Empire's most immoral cities, believers in Corinth alternated between self-indulgent excess and misplaced asceticism. In the face of the Corinthian church's disappointing failings, their exasperating vacillation, and their hurtful criticism of his ministry, Paul's deeply sensitive letter shines with heartfelt love and concern.
