The Catholic Commentary on Sacred Scriptures series aims to serve the ministry of the Word of God in the life and mission of the Church. This series provides accessible yet substantive commentary on each book of the New Testament, drawn from the best contemporary biblical scholarship as well as the rich treasury of the Church's tradition. These volumes seek to offer scholarship illumined by faith, in the conviction that the ultimate aim of biblical interpretation is to discover what God has revealed and is till speaking through the sacred text. This volume, "Second Corinthians" by Thomas D. Stegman, SJ, confirms: "In this letter Paul opens to us a unique window into the way he understands his apostolic life and ministry as pattered after the example of Jesus. We see the Apostle's love and care for a church he has founded. We sense his joys and frustrations. We discover a fledging community that struggles with many of the same issues that Christians face today.
