A Commentary on the Greek Text of Second Corinthians
This commentary on 2 Corinthians is meant for students of the Greek New Testament. Its design is to be a kind of ""halfway house"" between the various massive treatments of the letter and the more popular alternatives. The distinctive features of the volume are at least four. For one, there is a presentation of the Greek text in a manner intended to provide the reader with a bird's-eye view of the passages under examination. Second is an analysis of the text that approaches the letter in terms of grammatical-historical exegesis, with virtually every word of the epistle subjected to analysis. A third feature is the extensive bibliographies, intended to canvass both exegetical issues and topics of Pauline theology. Fourth and most distinctively, the various options for interpretation are set off in indented blocks, in order to provide the reader with a handy source of reference in the exegetical process and to suggest applications for teaching and preaching. ""Don Garlington's commentary on 2 Corinthians is exceptional in its focus on the Greek text, in its concise explanations of concepts, and in its clear presentation of exegetical options. Students will find no better guide to the Greek text of this important Pauline letter."" --Eckhard J. Schnabel, Mary F. Rockefeller Distinguished Professor of New Testament, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary ""Wanting to preach or teach 2 Corinthians from the Greek text, but your Greek is a bit rusty? Here's the ticket. Don Garlington's commentary does the heavy lifting in Greek for you. Here's a tool that answers your Greek questions, suggests Scripture-based sermons, and gives guidance for deeper study on your own. You can't go wrong. Garlington is a trusted guide through the intricacies of the Greek text. Tired of commentators with an axe to grind? Don Garlington helps you open up the Greek text of 2 Corinthians for yourself."" --Kent L. Yinger, Professor Emeritus, George Fox Evangelical Seminary ""The problem for so many students/teachers/preachers who want to get back behind the idiosyncrasies and foibles of various modern translations of the New Testament is that their knowledge of the biblical Greek is often too limited for them to explain or justify their concerns or criticisms. This is the commentary for them. Transition from one language to another is always demanding, but here is a sure guide. In addition, the extensive bibliographies point out many further resources."" --James D. G. Dunn, Professor Emeritus, University of Durham ""Few commentaries target readers who are at the intermediate stages of learning biblical and exegetical Greek. In this engaging work, Dr. Garlington fills in a much-needed niche. Students and ministers alike will benefit from this lucid and responsible handling of 2 Corinthians. Not only does Garlington explore almost every word in the letter from a grammatical viewpoint, but he also provides a wealth of helpful resources at the end of each pericope."" --B. J. Oropeza, Professor of Biblical and Religious Studies, Azusa Pacific University; author of Exploring Second Corinthians (Rhetoric of Religious Antiquity commentary series) Don Garlington has served in both the pastoral ministry (Durham, England) and as a professor of New Testament (Toronto, Ontario). He is the author of five previous books, The Obedience of Faith (1991); Faith, Obedience, and Perseverance (1994); Exegetical Essays (2003); An Exposition of Galatians (2007); Studies in the New Perspective on Paul (2008), along with numerous essays in the periodical literature.
