Product description


The subtitle of this book could well be ‘Collected Essays Old and New.’ Accompanying each of his previously published articles on Galatians, Murphy-O’Connor has added a postscript, each often comparable in length to the original essay. In each postscript, with characteristic incisiveness and wit, Murphy-O’Connor considers later scholarly attempts to grapple with the questions that had engaged him in his original essays. What the reader will discover is that many of Murphy-O’Connor’s original insights and explanations have stood the test of time! Fortunately, they have been collected in this handy volume.
Maria Pascuzzi, St. Thomas University, Miami Gardens, FL

For several decades Jerome Murphy-O’Connor has been one of New Testament scholarship’s most engaging interlocutors. Never one to mince his words or fail to engage in dialogue with those who disagree with him, Murphy-O’Connor never ceases to offer intriguing and often novel points of view. His work advances scholarship by challenging others to rethink their positions. This collection of essays is classic Murphy-O’Connor―crystal clear and thought provoking.
Raymond F. Collins, Visiting Scholar, Brown University

This collection of articles illustrates Murphy-O'Connor's expertise in the use of the historical-critical method. The articles reveal that a number of aspects are essential for the proper interpretation of Scripture. Thus, he incorporates history, geography, politics and culture into his study of Galations. . . . Murphy-O'Connor died in November 2013, which makes this collection of articles one of the last publications of his career. It is a worthy testimony to a great biblical scholar.
Mark Kenney, SM, Catholic Institute of Sydney, The Australasian Catholic Record

During the last years of his life the great New Testament scholar Jerome Murphy-O'Connor, OP, . . . was able to create and to publish four collections of his articles on First and Second Corinthians, Jerusalem, and Galatians. In Keys to Galations Murphy-O'Connor . . . includes his responses to those who had written in critique or in support of his ideas. This gives the collection an atmosphere of freshness that adds to the special sense of intellectual energy one always gets when reading Murphy O'Connor's work. Something has intrigued him, and he wants it to intrigue you as well.
John G. Lodge, SSL, STD, University of St. Mary of the Lake/Mundelein Seminary, Horizons: The Journal of the College Theology Society

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.
