Join John MacArthur in 2 Corinthians as he explains each verse in a way that is both doctrinally precise and intensely practical.
Second Corinthians is the most personal of Paul's church letters, providing unique insight into his heart for God and his motivation in ministry. With his credibility under attack, Paul reluctantly defended himself for the sake of the Gospel. In so doing, he offers a perspective that will encourage every believer, especially when enduring the hardships of the ministry.

The Corinthian church required Paul's repeated care. In 2 Corinthians, he continues his attempt to correct errors of unchristian practice, worship, and doctrine. Concerned with false apostles who were leading the church astray, Paul defended his own authority as God's apostle and sought reconciliation within the church. Respected preacher and Bible teacher John MacArthur presents yet another comprehensive and compelling commentary in his New Testament series.
