Book Notice: FS for Jerome Murphy-O’Connor (CBQMS)

I just came across the advertisement for a FS for Jerome Murphy-O’Connor called Celebrating Paul (CBQMS; ed. P. Spitaler, 2011). After scouring the internet I finally found the table of content with the list of contributors and it is really impressive – a testament to the legacy of JMOC’s scholarship (esp on 1-2 Corinthians).

I have set in bold the essays I am seriously interesting in reading.
