9780521358989: The Theology of the Second Letter to the Corinthians (New Testament Theology)

The resonances in the dialogue of Paul's Second Letter to the Corinthians are difficult to detect unless the reader has some knowledge of the social, religious, and economic situation of the community to which the apostle was writing. In this lucid and clear survey, Father Murphy-O'Connor attempts to provide such background information, which he integrates skillfully into a flowing exposition of Paul's thought. St. Paul's theology thus comes to life as the complex interplay of factors that prompted him to write as he did to the Corinthians are examined and explored. In addition to providing a particularly accessible picture of the distinctive theological contribution made by 2 Corinthians, the author's book prompts new insights into the relation of Christ to the ministry of the Church.

Book Description:

In addition to depicting a particularly accessible picture of the distinctive theological contribution made by 2 Corinthians, this analysis provides new insights into the relation of Christ to the ministry of the Church.

Review:

"They are very useful volumes produced in the best tradition of British scholarship: lucidly written and argued without any claims the text cannot bear....the collected volumes belong on every reference shelf." Lawrence S. Cunningham, Commonweal

"Murphy-O'Connor's contribution to this series on II Corinthians is a model of clarity and good sense." Lawrence S. Cunningham, Commonweal

"Murphy-O'Connor has a well-deserved reputation as one of the leading interpreters of Paul's Corinthian correspondence....Murphy-O'Connor is often provoctaive, and this work is no exception. Many of his interpretations are persuasive....the volume is a welcome addition by an important scholar and is highly recommended...." John T. Fitzgerald, Religious Studies Review

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 1991. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. The Second Letter to the Corinthians is one of Paul s most intriguing epistles. In reality, it comprises two documents. In the first, Paul cautiously attempts to repair the damage done to his relations with the Corinthians by an earlier letter (1 Corinthians) and to deal with the upset caused by the presence in Corinth of rival missionaries from Jerusalem. In the second, he reacts angrily against an unexpected further deterioration of the situation at Corinth. The resonances in the dialogue between Paul and the parties in question cannot be detected easily without some awareness on the reader s part of the social, religious, and economic situation of the Christian community to which Paul was writing. The aim of this book is to integrate such background information into a flowing exposition of the apostle s thought, and thus to bring Paul s theology to life by highlighting the complex interplay of factors which prompted him to write in the way he did. Father Murphy-O Connor is an experienced New Testament scholar, and his lucid survey - while providing an accessible introduction to the epistle and its central concerns - brings new insights into the relation of Christ to the ministry of the church.
