The series . . . is valuable as a corrective to previous modern commentaries that focused exclusively on historical-critical issues.
Catholic Books Review
Lambrecht offers a literal translation of the epistle which seeks to preserve the Pauline reasoning and flow of thought.
The Expository Times
An excellent commentary. . . . The series is excellent for those readers who do want to study seriously the text and at the same time be introduced to the theological and pastoral riches of the Word.
. . . this commentary is a good basic introduction to Second Corinthians with a bibliography that is international in its scope.
Society for Old Testament Study
