Since its appearance nearly 35 years ago, Black's New Testament Commentary Series has been hailed by both scholars and pastors for its insightful interpretations and reliable commentary. Each book in the series includes: an insightful introduction to the important historical, literary, and theological issues; key terms and phrases from the translation highlighted in the commentary where they are discussed; explanations of special Greek or foreign terms; references to important primary and secondary literature; and a Scripture index.Second Corinthans is one of the most difficult writings in the New Testament to interpret. Yet, this commentary, which follows Barrett's works on Romans and I Corinthians in the same series, is superb in every respect. The author's command of the Greek language, his skillful use of the Old Testament and background writings, and his sensitive handling of complex exegetical problems provide a panorama of a mature scholar's work which is at times almost breathtaking. Moreover, the restrained use of Greek and technical terms makes this commentary as useful for the layman or pastor as it is for the scholar. Review and Expositor

C. K. Barrett is Emeritus Professor of Divinity at the University of Durham. He is especially known for having authored numerous scholarly articles and books, including Commentary on St. John, The First Epistle to the Corinthians, The Second Epistle to the Corinthians (Black's New Testament Commentary), and The New Testament Background: Selected Documents.Review:
"It is clear. . . . that we are here under the guidance of one who is not only an expert scholar but also an experienced commentator."
—The Expository Times
"These [the Corinthian letters and Romans] are among the greatest of New Testament writings and Barrett is among the greatest of present day commentators. He has put us all very much in his debt with his earlier works and this latest volume does nothing to diminish our gratitude. . . . This book will take its place as a standard work and will enrich our studies for years to come."
—Churchman -- Review
