What was it that propelled Paul to work so hard and against such great odds to evangelize his world? Theologian Robert Reymond demonstrates how Paul's mission and drive were linked to his theological convictions. This work is broken up into two parts. Part one chronicles Paul's missionary work while part two dissects the missionary theology that mobilized Paul. In the last chapter Reymond draws from his incredible research to communicate lessons to the Church and modern missionaries from Paul's worldview and example.
Praise for the Print Edition
Robert Reymond has written a useful survey of Paul's missionary life and theology. The approach to the New Testament materials reflects a high view of their divine origin and authority. Of particular note is a serious defense of the now generally abandoned view that Paul was the author of Hebrews.
This is quite a book! It tackles a big subject and grapples with it in a big way. Scholars, ministers, theological students, and many general Christian readers will find much to stimulate and instruct them here.
—Dr. Geoffrey Grogan, Glasgow Bible College
This excellent volume examines Paul's theology and practice of mission. Its scope is wide and touches upon areas of Pauline studies that have caused and continue to cause controversy. It is undoubtedly an inspiring and thought-provoking work.
