The Evangelical Press Study Commentary series fills a needed gap in contemporary biblical commentary. The volumes in this series evidence and model careful biblical exposition and biblically grounded application in service of the church. They do this in such a way as to be able to profit pastors, teachers, and readers with no specialised theological training alike. - Koorong
Invaluable tools for the minister, theologian and serious student of the Scriptures. The series is both highly readable and user-friendly with sound, accessible biblical exegesis matched with practical application of the text.
Writing on the second of Paul's two letters to the Corinthians to be included in the New Testament (in the EP Study Commentary series), Peter Naylor shows how the apostle tells of strength in weakness, comfort in distress, provision in need, fellowship in loneliness, certainty in doubt, guidance in perplexity, protection in peril and hope for the future. This volume deals with chapters 1-7. Above all, it tells of the surpassing love of Jesus Christ: if Paul the apostle loved and cared for the troublesome Corinthian church as intensely as he did, he no more than reflected, albeit dimly, the grace of God to his believing people. Joy in the Lord and in his people, pastoral tenderness, righteous anger, self-vindication in the interests of the ministry, profound theology and concern for harmony, both at home and with churches elsewhere, all vie for expression. Each strand interweaves with the others. This volume covers the first seven chapters of the epistle, in which an introduction is followed by a review of Paul's labours for the church up to the time of writing, with special emphasis placed upon the excellence of the ministry of the new covenant.
Peter Naylor is a retired Baptist minister living in Wellinborough, UK, and completed his doctorate at the University of Potchefstroom, South Africa. He and his wife have two daughters and two grandchildren. Having lectured, mainly in India and Sri Lanka, his aspiration now is to focus upon biblical studies.
