Item description for The Message of 2 Corinthians: Power in Weakness (Bible Speaks Today) by Paul W. Barnett...
Overview The letter of 2 Corinthians is important, Paul Barnett believes, for its magnificent message that God's power is brought to people in their weakness, not in human strength. This momentous theme emerges in a dramatic real-life situation. The apostle confronts shadowy opponents who had recently come to Corinth and formed an alliance with some of the church leaders and members. His letter is a fascinating record of that conflict. Paul Barnett argues that this heated debate between apparent power and apparent weakness is still with us today. His aim in this expostion has been to allow the timely message of 'God's fool' to be clearly heard. Paul Barnett is bishop of North Sydney in Australia. He has authored several books on the New Testament.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Message of 2 Corinthians: Power in Weakness (Bible Speaks Today)?
Good overview of 2 Corinthians Dec 6, 2006
Barnett's commentary is relatively brief -- especially compared with those of David Garland and C.K. Barrett, the leading authorities on 2 Corinthians. But he is very readable, and his focus is always on the edification and encouragement Paul's letter offers to modern believers.

I found this to be an excellent accompaniment to other commentaires. We have used this book in teaching at our Bible College and students have found it very helpful.
