Zondervan 2 Corinthians: NIV Application Commentary [NIVAC]

The second letter Paul addressed to the eminently troubled church in Corinth is the most ministerially difficult and personally complex of all Paul's letters. It brims with passionate self-defense, intense concern for the eternal destiny of the Corinthians, and even anger.

In 2 Corinthians [NIVAC] Scott J. Hafeman reconciles three key themes to one another that are critical to rightly understanding Paul's second Corinthian letter: weakness, sufficiency, and the Holy Spirit. The weakness is Paul's personally ability to succeed, the sufficiency is the fact that Paul does succeed, in spite of his weakness and the Holy Spirit is the power that enables this sufficiency in spite of weakness to occur. And in as much as these realities are true for Paul in his own life, he desperately wishes the Corinthians to accept them as well.

If at first glance you think that this commentary on 2 Corinthians is only an application commentary, think again! If you desire to know the background and historical context of Corinthian as well as the literary context of the portion of Scripture you are studying, quit your hunting for commentaries and invest in good, solid scholarship as well as practical application. If expository preaching is your aim behind the pulpit, this commentary set is sure to better equip you!
