Product Description

Regarded as the most personal of Paul's letters, the Second Letter to the Corinthians is highly significant theologically as well as autobiographically. Paul fiercely counters the attacks of his opponents. He also extensively describes both the quality and circumstances of his apostolic existence: the sufferings he endures, the opposition he encounters, and his continual care for the churches.

Second Corinthians reveals Paul's ongoing reflection on his ministry. It is both profound in its content and style for its original audience as well as for today's readers. This commentary argues for the integrity of Second Corinthians. Verse-by-verse analysis is followed by in-depth theological explanation.

Publisher's Description

Now Available in Paperback!
Second Corinthians is often regarded as the most personal of Paul's letters. In this letter Paul more than once fiercely counters the attacks of his opponents. He extensively describes both the quality and circumstances of his apostolic existence: the sufferings he endures, the opposition he encounters, and his continual care for the churches.

Second Corinthians is, therefore, highly significant theologically as well as autobiographically. This letter is an especially important document because of Paul's ongoing reflection on his ministry. It is both profound in its content and style for its original audience as well as for today's readers. It is a message that is relevant to Christians today.

Editorial Reviews

The series . . . is valuable as a corrective to previous modern commentaries that focused exclusively on historical-critical issues.

Catholic Books Review

Lambrecht offers a literal translation of the epistle which seeks to preserve the Pauline reasoning and flow of thought.
The Expository Times

An excellent commentary. . . . The series is excellent for those readers who do want to study seriously the text and at the same time be introduced to the theological and pastoral riches of the Word.
Vidyajyoti Journal

. . . this commentary is a good basic introduction to Second Corinthians with a bibliography that is international in its scope.
Society for Old Testament Study

. . . an asset for those who care about the theological importance of Second Corinthians and engage it in serious exegesis, whether for scholarly pursuits or sermon preparation.
