Product Description

Product Description

Over the course of five decades of scholarly work on the New Testament, Jerome Murphy-O'Connor has never been afraid to explore and question ideas that other scholars have simply presumed. In Keys to Galatians, he offers fresh perspectives on a rather neglected New Testament letter. This book includes new thinking on the origins of the letter and new insights into its purpose. The author explains why he dates the letter much earlier than most scholars and why Paul's rhetorical technique should be considered nothing short of remarkable. He also explores illuminating hints about Paul's personality. Murphy-O'Connor recognizes in Paul a notable openness to new ideas and what he calls "a daring strategy that would have been unthinkable for one less confident in his rhetorical skills."

5.0 out of 5 stars uncovering the meaning of the new testament 23 Feb 2013
By John D. Fitzmorris - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
SInce I teach this subject at the college level, this book was a necessity. This book is the incisive insights of of the one of foremost Pauline scholars in the world. It is a series of essays on varying aspects of the seminal letter to the Galatian Churches. I needed it to understand the reasons that provoked the letter and understand the factions that were contending for control of the Galatian community. It did not disappoint! However, this is not for the casual reader without academic background in New Testament and Pauline studies.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good study but technical 10 Dec 2012
By Joel Holtz - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This is a very good study of the book of Galatians, but it is quite technical throughout (Greek on just about every page) so the casual reader might have a hard time with parts of it.

Nevertheless, Murphy-O'Connor does an excellent job of highlighting 7 or 8 key verses in Galations, and covers topics like the Apostle Paul's time in Arabia, his Christology, and who were the actual recipients of the book of Galatians.

I found Chapter 5, NATIONALISM AND CHURCH POLICY to be one of the best in the entire book.

The author says in the preface that he dates the book of Galatians much earlier than most scholars (53 AD), but in reality most scholars date the book close to that date. The Jerusalem council was held in 49 AD, and most biblical scholars feel the book was written by Paul shortly after that.

Not an exhaustive Bible study but an excellent one.
