Whenever a Christian spreads the gospel, obstacles arise. It doesn't matter whether that Christian is the apostle Paul or you. Second Corinthians is a letter from Paul that deals not only with those problems, but also with their solutions. A careful study provides you with many practical rules to apply to your own situations. Robert B. Hughes clarifies the meaning of the text in a paragragh-by-paragraph analysis that follow the logic and progression of Paul's arguments and highlights the heart of the apostle's message to the church. He treats the text seriously without becoming overly technical. You will find this commentary both helpful and highly readable.
