Item Description...
Overview
Paul's letters are intensely human documents. In the examination of such basic human questions as "What did he write the letters with?" "Did he use a secretary to record them?" and "What was his personal writing style?" much real information can be gathered regarding his thought without intimidating the average reader. Scholar Jerome Murphy-O'Connor has put together such a work, one that, tapping into his knowledge of classical Greek and Latin writings, addresses the physical nature of a first-century letter as well as the actual composition, presentation, and question of authorship collaborative or other of the Pauline letters. The formal features of the letters and their organization show the extent to which Paul adapted current epistolary conventions. At the same time, they draw attention to his mood while writing and his relationship with the recipients. Father Murphy-O'Connor also investigates the question of how these letters, written to widely scattered churches, were brought together to form the Pauline canon. Jerome Murphy-O'Connor, O.P., has been professor of New Testament at the famous Ecole Biblique in Jerusalem since 1967. A frequent lecturer in summer sessions in the United States, he has written widely on Paul's life and theology. In addition to his 1 Corinthians and Becoming Human Together: The Pastoral Anthropology of St. Paul, The Liturgical Press has published his St. Paul's Corinth: Texts and Archaeology, which does for Corinth what this book does for the Pauline letters: reveal their character.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A Well-Developed Argument for A Pauline Authorized Collection of Letters  Jan 27, 2008
In the first part of this book the author provides a comprehensive survey of academic thought concerning the composition of Paul's letters including the use of secretaries and collaborators, the parts of a typical letter, and the forms/types of letters in Paul's day. He defends or refutes some of the positions discussed providing examples from letters and NT documents of the period. This section provides little room (110 pages of text) for detailed analysis leaving some issues for others to address. Consequently his detailed arguments focus primarily on issues that support the premise found in the second and final section of the book. The final section of the book supports the premise that Romans, 1 Corinthians, 2 Corinthians, and Galatians were prepared for distribution by the Apostle Paul and his secretary as a single literary unit, an authorized collection of his letters with a single purpose and theme. There are many proofs and conjectures provided to support this position. His work deserves consideration and evaluation by others in this field of study.
 
A fine introduction to ancient letter writing  Sep 8, 2006
Murphy-O'Connor has rendered a significant service to the study of New Testament, and especially Pauline, epistles. With chapters on the process of and materials for writing, and on the main consistent parts of ancient letters, we are given a survey from non-biblical to biblical epistles that is an important contribution to the whole field. Especially interesting is the author's account of the use of secretaries and the preservation of letters in the first century.
