The theology of the second letter to the Corinthians by J Murphy-O'Connor( Book )

16 editions published between 1991 and 2009 in English and Italian and held by 611 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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
1 Corinthians by J Murphy-O'Connor( Book )

22 editions published between 1979 and 1999 in English and Undetermined and held by 596 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Here is a description of the problems and challenges facing a young church - what does freedom in Christ mean. How should believers practise the gifts of the spriit? And what is the role of women in the worshipping community? Paul wrote to help the Corinthian Christians live out their faith in one of the largest and most notorious cities in the ancient world. His words of confrontation, correction, reconciliation and blessing still resonate in our lives today. [back cover]

Paul the letter-writer : his world, his options, his skills by J Murphy-O'Connor( Book )

10 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 380 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How did Paul use his secretaries? Did he rely on co-authors? Did his rhetorical education affect the way he organised his material? This book confronts these questions on the basis of extensive quotations from classical Greek and Latin authors. A synoptic survey of the beginnings and ends of the letters brings out the extent to which Paul both used and adapted current epistolary conventions. The intention of the book is to humanize the Pauline letters and make their complex theology less daunting. (Adapted from back cover)

7 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 365 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Paul on preaching by J Murphy-O'Connor( Book )

21 editions published between 1963 and 1968 in 3 languages and held by 289 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is not an instruction on how to prepare a sermon. Nor is it an anthology of Pauline themes systematically tabulated to facilitate the researches of the busy priest. What it aims to do is to share St. Paul's insight into the structure of a key element in the life of the Church, the proclamation of the word of God

7 editions published between 1983 and 2008 in English and held by 255 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this new volume, renowned scholar Jerome Murphy-O'Connor does for Ephesus what he did for Corinth in his award-winning St. Paul's Corinth. He combs the works of twenty-six ancient authors for information about ancient Ephesus, from its beginnings to the end of the biblical era. Readers can now picture for themselves this second of the two major centers of Paul's missionary work, with its houses, shops, and monuments, and above all the world-renowned temple of Artemis. After presenting the textual and archaeological evidence, Murphy-O'Connor leads the reader on a walk through St. Paul's Ephesus and describes the history of Paul's years in the city. Although Ephesus has been a ruin for many hundreds of years, readers of this book will find themselves transported back to the days of its flourishing. -- Book Cover

12 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 238 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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 Press."--Publisher's description

Keys to Galatians : collected essays by J Murphy-O'Connor( Book )

5 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 174 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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
