About 2 Corinthians - 2nd Edition (Volume 40):
This volume on 2 Corinthians by Ralph Martin begins with introductory notes discussing the history and composition of the text, the setting, date and author, the contents of the letter and a review of 1 Corinthians. The commentary then analyzes the epistle using linguistic and historical tools. Definitely a scholarly text.
Pastors and students will appreciate this new edition with its up-to-date bibliography and discussion of pertinent issues. In this full revision and update of the book of Second Corinthians, Dr. Ralph P. Martin addresses the scholarly questions about the text of the epistle and the significance of Paul's thought for Christian living and ministry. In a penetrating analysis of Paul's responses to the various crises within the Corinthian congregation, Dr. Martin gives insight into the particular problems of Christianity as expressed in the hedonistic, cosmopolitan setting of Corinth. He shows how Paul's attempt to clearly distinguish the gospel from Hellenistic Judaism and Hellenistic Jewish Christian ideology results in a moving statement of the Christian message.
