The question that Paul set before the ancient church in Corinth -- Do you not recognize that Jesus Christ is in and among you? (2 Cor 13:5) -- remains a critical question for the church today. This commentary by Mark Seifrid offers a unified reading of 2 Corinthians, which has often been regarded as a composite of excerpts and fragments, as Seifrid seeks to hear Paul's message afresh and communicate it to our time.
James W. Voelz
-- Concordia Seminary, St. Louis
"If you value detailed, sustained exegesis coupled with deep theological analysis, then this commentary is for you. This is Mark Seifrid at his very best -- grappling intensely and respectfully with the content and progression of St. Paul's thought, and bringing it alive for the reader today. . . . Kudos!"
Douglas J. Moo
-- Wheaton College
"Mark Seifrid takes a distinctive approach to the commentator's task: rather than cataloging and evaluating the opinions of modern scholars, he chooses to focus on his own fresh, stimulating, and very definite interpretation of the letter, its theology, and its significance for fundamental issues of hermeneutics."
David E. Garland
-- George W. Truett Theological Seminary
"Seifrid brings extraordinary erudition, exegetical precision, and astute theological reflection to the interpretation of this poignant letter. He makes Paul's parental love for his problem church come alive and presents his word of the cross so that it also speaks to present-day realities. . . . An outstanding addition to an excellent commentary series."
-- Beeson Divinity School, Samford University
"Mark Seifrid has given us here a model commentary on Paul's most passionate, intensely personal letter. Refusing to dice up 2 Corinthians into disparate fragments, this volume presents a coherent if afflicted and sometimes distraught apostle committed to the fulfillment of the mission he has received from the risen Christ. At once a superb work of erudition and devotion."
