Paul's letters to the Corinthians include some of the most significant - and difficult - material in the New Testament. Simon J. Kistemaker's sane and illuminating comments will go a long way in helping students come to terms with the Corinthian correspondence. "2 Corinthians" begins with the author's introduction and outline for the book. A fresh translation of each section of text is followed by verse-by-verse analysis. Sections of doctrinal considerations, linguistic notes, and homiletic applications follow. Clear writing, careful documentation, and a select bibliography make this volume a good first stop for research projects.
