Barnett assumes and offers argument for the unity of the letter and takes the view that Paul is addressing the issue of triumphalism in Corinth expressed by the newly arrived missioners who portray Paul as inferior to themselves. It is also endemic among the Corinthians and according to Barnett, the recurring theme of the letter is power-in-weakness, based on the motif of the Resurrection of the Crucified, which lies at the heart of the gospel of Christ. A powerfully written and argued commentary.

Easy to read and accessible to a wide range of readers. Barnett pays careful attention to the Greek text and clarifies for the readers the grammatical and logical connections between Paul's statements...Barnett succeeds in presenting a careful scholarly, theological, and pastoral reading of the text of 2 Corinthians. He traces Paul's argument through 2 Corinthians with care and consistency. He does so with a concern for the pastoral heart and method of Paul, yet without forcing every text into an easy contemporary application...A valuable resource for teachers and pastors who seek to understand the issues and argument of 2 Corinthians, especially for those who want to examine how Paul as pastor wrestles with this troubled congregation.
An excellent commentary, especially for serious students and pastors.

The Bible Today
Does what a good commentary is supposed to doprovides the reader with a wealth of background on the probable setting of the letter, its literary structure, and major motifs. His comments also have a strong pastoral bent, a plus particularly for this theologically rich letter. Pastors and biblical students will find this a substantial resource for an in-depth study of 2 Corinthians.
Journal of the Evangelical Theological Society
In one respect the book fills a much-needed vacuum today. Very little has been done in commentary format with the theology of Paul's letters. And the author takes great pains to tie together the theological threads of 2 Corinthians... Another strength is the author's firsthand acquaintance with a wide range of primary sources that helps in setting forth the first-century religious and theological milieu. Also, the theologically focused introductions to each pericope are themselves worth the price of the volume.
Journal of Theological Studies
Dr. Barnett has made a substantial contribution to this impressive series. While engaging in a thoroughgoing manner with the main thrusts of contemporary research into the problems of a uniquely difficult epistle, he has borne in mind the non-specialists who form an important part of his intended readership. He has made the fruits of scholarship accessible to such readers without any serious loss of depth and penetration.

Paul Barnett is a gifted exegete and this commentary is an excellent addition to the NICNT series. However, I found the need to look to Barnett's predecessor, Philip Edgcumbe Hughes, at a number of points in the text of 2 Corinthians for a fuller explanation. The most notable is 5:18-21, where I think Barnett really falls short on a thorough explanation of that marvelous passage. Barnett excels in word studies and interaction with other commentators in the word studies in this passage, but fails to give the kind of attention to explanation that I find in Hughes' work. I also thought that Barnett could have dealt with the difference in the Arminian and Calvinist interpretation of this passage. On the other hand, Barnett helped me to better understand the full-orbed meaning of the epistle and its relation to 1 Corinthians. Overall, this is a great work.
