Description: 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.
