"Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort" (2 Cor. 1:3 NASB). Some of the greatest texts and most encouraging promises in all of Scripture are found in Paul's second letter to the Corinthians. Paul's integrity was being attacked, and his altered travel plans fortified some of his detractors in their accusations. Paul's response to the attacks levied against him not only gives us an intimate portrait of the great apostle, it also provides readers today with clear directions for effective ministry in a fallen world and an imperfect church.
Within the twelve chapters of The God of All Comfort, Ken Hemphill discusses
the relational aspect of ministry; ministry that flows from genuine love; the sweet fragrance of ministry; the transformational nature of ministry; the eternal perspective for ministry; temporal affliction compared to eternal glory; the gospel focus of ministry; the mystery of ministry; making known the grace of God; the ministry of giving; personal challenges of ministry; and abundant grace.
