Keys to Galatians - Collected Essays
AUTHOR Jerome Murphy-O'Connor, OP
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."
Jerome Murphy-O'Connor is one of the world's foremost authorities on the writings of Saint Paul of Tarsus. He has been a professor of New Testament at the École Biblique of Jerusalem since 1967.2012
