Acknowledging the Divine Benefactor' is a socio-rhetorical interpretation of the Second Letter of Peter. Using multiple interpretive perspectives and emphasising the pictorial dimensions of 2 Peter, Terrance Callan shows that the letter makes the following argument: since Jesus Christ has given his followers benefits, including the promise of sharing in divine nature, they need to make a proper return for these benefits by living virtuously; and this in turn will enable them to receive the fulfilment of the promise. The occasion of the letter is that Peter's death is near. He writes so the addressees can remember his teaching after his death. The author expounds this teaching because some people do not await the future fulfilment of Christ's promises and so do not emphasise the need for virtuous living.

"Acknowledging the Divine Benefactor admirably demonstrates SRI's [socio-rhetorical interpretation] use as structural methodology. ... I particularly enjoyed his 'social-cultural texture' with (translated) texts/inscriptions, e.g., decrees honouring benefactors (pp. 55-56), and identification of the frequent priority of usage of Hellenistic terms/language (over Jewish terms, pp. 75-76), patron-client relationships and honour-shame values."
-Robert S. Dutch, Journal for the Study of the New Testament, Volume 38.5, August 2016

"This book is technical yet readable, highly scholarly yet accesible and represents a thoroughly theological interpretation of the text."
-David Lloyd Williams, Theological Book Review, Vol. 27 No.1, 2016

Das Dateiformat PDF zeigt auf jeder Hardware eine Buchseite stets identisch an. Daher ist eine PDF auch für ein komplexes Layout geeignet, wie es bei Lehr- und Fachbüchern verwendet wird (Bilder, Tabellen, Spalten, Fußnoten). Bei kleinen Displays von E-Readern oder Smartphones sind PDF leider eher nervig, weil zu viel Scrollen notwendig ist. Mit Adobe-DRM wird hier ein "harter" Kopierschutz verwendet. Wenn die notwendigen Voraussetzungen nicht vorliegen, können Sie das E-Book leider nicht öffnen. Daher müssen Sie bereits vor dem Download Ihre Lese-Hardware vorbereiten.
