"Hafemann's very thorough and insightful study deserves to be read widely. Indeed, it will be ineluctable for any further work on this crucial passage and on Pauline theology as a whole."
--James Scott, Journal of Biblical Literature
"Hafemann's exhaustive research has become a classic that repays careful study. He provides invaluable instruction on how Paul interpreted the Old Testament--he is not engaging in arbitrary and fanciful midrash--and how it should affect our interpretation of 2 Corinthians and our understanding of his theology. An enormous achievement that illuminates Paul's view of the Law, the Spirit and Israel."
--David E. Garland, George W. Truett Theological Seminary, Baylor University
"Scott Hafemann interprets 2 Corinthians 3 in the light of Exodus 32-34 and the expectation of the 'new covenant' in Jeremiah 31 and Ezekiel 36. The sending of Paul and his understanding of the Torah are seen in a new light. Both conclusions enrich (and stimulate) research on Paul."
