Commentary on the Second Epistle to the Corinthians
Dr. Charles Hodge was known more as a systematic theologian than as an expositor of Scripture. Nevertheless, his whole life was devoted primarily to the critical and systematic study of the Bible. "Commentary on the Second Epistle to the Corinthians" has remained a standard resource for teachers, pastors, and educated laypersons. Hodge's introductory material, chapter summaries, and verse-by-verse exposition provide - even after more than one hundred years - solid, relevant instructions for today's students of the Bible.

For if the ministration of condemnation be glory, much more doth the ministration of righteousness exceed in glory.
Page 9 - For we would not, brethren, have you ignorant of our trouble which came to us in Asia, that we were pressed out of measure, above strength, insomuch that we despaired even of life...
