2 Corinthians part of the NIV Application Commentary series, helps readers learn how the message of 2 Corinthians can have the same powerful impact today that it did when it was first written. This volume is part of a series which explains the Bible’s message by placing it in a modern context. This edition gives insight into both the author of the letter, Paul, and most strikingly, what it says about God.
The tools, ideas, and insights contained in this volume will help preachers communicate God’s Word and understand the Gospel in the context of contemporary culture, and the exegetical, literary, and grammatical summaries will benefit scholars and students of the Bible. What’s more, with Logos, Scripture passages are linked to Greek and Hebrew texts, along with English translations, and the powerful search tools provide instant access to the information you need for research projects, sermon preparation, and personal study.
- Treats all the elements of traditional exegesis
- Compares the original context and the contemporary context

The NIV Application Commentary meets the urgent need for an exhaustive and authoritative commentary based on the New International Version. This series will soon be found in libraries and studies throughout the evangelical community.
—James Kennedy, senior minister, Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church
It is encouraging to find a commentary that is not only biblically trustworthy but also contemporary in its application. The NIV Application Commentary will prove to be a helpful tool in the pastor’s sermon preparation. I use it and recommend it.
