Letters and Homilies For Hellenized Christians Volume 2

Ben Witherington

$43.99

Hardback

Volume 2: A Socio-Rhetorical Commentary on 1-2 Peter.

Throughout, Witherington shows his thorough knowledge of recent literature on these texts and focuses his attention on the unique insights brought about through socio-rhetorical analysis that either reinforces or corrects those gleaned from other approaches. Strikingly, based on his rhetorical analysis of the Pastorals, he makes the case for Luke as Paul's amanuensis for these letters. He also makes a strenuous argument against New Testament pseudepigrapha.

In this volume on the Petrine Epistles he again follows a distinctly rhetorical analysis and argues for Petrine authorship and against a pseudepigrapha. "Bridging the Horizons" sections point to the relevance of the text for believers today, making these volumes of special value to pastors and general readers as well as to students and scholars.
