Overview

In this addition to the well-received Paideia series, a respected senior New Testament scholar examines cultural context and theological meaning in Second Corinthians. Paideia commentaries explore how New Testament texts form Christian readers by

∙ attending to the ancient narrative and rhetorical strategies the text employs
∙ showing how the text shapes theological convictions and moral habits
∙ commenting on the final, canonical form of each New Testament book
∙ focusing on the cultural, literary, and theological settings of the text
∙ making judicious use of maps, photos, and sidebars in a reader-friendly format

Students, pastors, and other readers will appreciate the historical, literary, and theological insight offered in this practical commentary.
