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.
