This short introduction highlights the most difficult issues at the heart of 2 Corinthians and addresses them in a way that is accessible for an undergraduate studentSurveys recent scholarly approaches to the textBrings 2 Corinthians into conversation with modern narrative and meaningConsiders key contemporary issues: gender identity race classJay Twomey is Associate Professor in the Department of English and Comparative Literature at the University of Cincinnati USA.This guide considers the historical contexts the literary forms the social and rhetorical backgrounds the politics the theologies and the reception of 2 Corinthians. Each chapter surveys recent scholarly approaches to the text focussing especially on critical perspectives that mesh with our contemporary concerns about gender identity race and class. 2 Corinthians becomes in the process less the work of a single 1stcentury writer than a set of fraught even fractured negotiations between competing interests and impulses conducted in Pauls voice. The last chapter brings the letter into conversation with Nathaniel Hawthornes short story śThe Ministers Black Veil in order to shift the terms of the critical discussion from what Paul meant to how Paul means in later cultural moments.Twomey introduces students to the way 2 Corinthians offers a fascinating but fragmentary glimpse into Pauls continuing ties with the Corinthian community. At the same time Twomey shows how the letter is the site of many new critical challenges to traditional readings of Paul and early Christianity.In contrast to 1 Corinthians this 2 Corinthians largely eschews the debates and discussions the interests and concerns of Pauls correspondents. Instead we find Paul engaged in a multipronged defence of his ministry in and beyond Corinth. Over the course of thirteen chapters he runs the gamut of the emotions rhetorically from tears to joy to biting anger while struggling to keep his relationship with (some say his control over) the community intact.An entrylevel text on Pauls second letter to the Corinthians with a focus on Pauls rhetoric and style as well as contemporary issues of gender identity race and class.Preface1.
