Jerome Murphy-O'Connor's reputation as a recognized expert on the Corinthian correspondence has been built on the original solutions he has offered to perennial problems. Brought together for the first time in one volume, each of the twelve articles anthologised here deals with a complex aspect of interpretation for 2 Corinthians. Whether addressing the interpretation of a particular passage, the question of co-authorship, or the relation of the epistle to other texts, Murphy-O'Connor presents his evidence in a characteristically clear and incisive style. A newly written 'reception history' has been appended to each article to bring the collection up to date with the latest research on the epistle. This is a companion volume to Keys to First Corinthians , also available from Oxford University more

Review quote

This collection of articles represents well the magisterial contribution that Jerome Murphy-O'Connor has made to Pauline scholarship in general and 2 Corinthians in particular... What makes this collection particularly helpful is that Murphy-O'Connor has appended to some of his chapters a history of the reception of his ieas, combined with his own response to that reception. This provides the reader with an insight into the role that Murphy-O'Connor has played. * Paula Gooder, Theology *show more
