Description - 2 Corinthians by Jerry W. McCant

Sensitivity to literary-rhetorical style enables Jerry McCant to offer a new and dynamic reading of 2 Corinthians that illuminates many perennially difficult passages. Against many scholars, he argues for the unity of the letter and rejects the widely held view of 'outside opponents' at Corinth. McCant advances the thesis that 2 Corinthians is a parodic defence speech that demolishes the Corinthian ideas of patronage and apostolic criteria. Readers will certainly find the argument for a parodic reading of 2 Corinthians intriguing.
