Item description for 2 Corinthians: Power in Weakness (Preaching the Word) by R. Kent Hughes...
Overview Preachers, teachers, students, and laity will appreciate this accessible commentary. Hughes brings to life the suffering, endurance, and victory the apostle Paul and the Corinthians experienced; challenges 21st-century believers to likewise stand for Christ; and reminds us that, just like the believers of Corinth, we must love and comfort one another---and live peaceably.
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. No wonder its inhabitants held little regard for Paul's message
Sound familiar? Our contemporary culture has much in common with ancient Corinth. The relevance of this book to churches today is astounding. Paul delivers powerful theology that turns the values of the ancient Roman world upside-down-the grace of God, the centrality of the cross, and God's power made perfect in weakness. He challenges us to live counterculturally.
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. Part of the Preaching the Word series.
