In an age of proliferating commentary series, one might easily ask why add yet another to the seeming glut. The simplest answer is that no other series is written to and from the church, that seeks to move from the text to its contemporary application. No other series offers the unique combination of solid, evangelical biblical exposition and helpful explanatory notes in the same user friendly format. No other series has tapped the unique blend of scholars and pastors who share both a passion for faithful exegesis and a deep concern for the church. In this careful study of 2 Corinthians, readers will find an introduction that discusses the letter's occasion and purpose, authorship, and other background information, as well as its important theological themes.
