Eminent New Testament scholar C. K. Barrett makes 2 Corinthians come alive both in its original setting and in the life of the church today. Barrett's arguments will challenge even the most seasoned scholars to rethink their interpretation of the many controversial passages.

Resource Experts
2 Corinthians is one of the most difficult writings in the New Testament to interpret. Yet, this commentary, which follows Barrett's works on Romans and 1 Corinthians in the same series, is superb in every respect. The author's command of the Greek language, his skillful use of the Old Testament and background writings, and his sensitive handling of complex exegetical problems provide a panorama of a mature scholar's work which is at times almost breathtaking. Moreover, the restrained use of Greek and technical terms makes this commentary as useful for the layman or pastor as it is for the scholar.

Review and Expositor

These [the Corinthian letters and Romans] are among the greatest of New Testament writings and Barrett is among the greatest of present day commentators. He has put us all very much in his debt with his earlier works and this latest volume does nothing to diminish our gratitude. . . . This book will take its place as a standard work and will enrich our studies for years to come.

    I read some of C.K. Barrett's Commentary on 1st Corinthians as I am preaching through that book in church now. What I have read thus far is excellent.
