Pressestimmen"This book is a masterful treatment of Paul's defense of his ministry in 2 Corinthians, a ministry that, ironically, though 'weak' in the eyes of the Corinthians, demonstrated the power of God." Roy Zuck, Bibliotheca Sacra "This is a sensible book that seeks to explain the paradoxical language of the apostle Paul regarding the nature and character of his ministry in canonical 2 Corinthians...the exegetical portions of this volume make it worthy not only of reading but of study." Thomas Gillespie, Journal of Biblical Literature "This is a book that will benefit scholar and minister alike." Eugene Hensell O.S.B., The Catholic Biblical Quarterly
