Overview

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.

Top Highlights

“Let me say plainly at the outset of our study: Paul is not the founder of Christianity. Jesus is” (Page 10)

“Paul’s third missionary journey, he should think immediately of Ephesus” (Page 177)

“Paul’s second missionary journey, should think immediately of Corinth” (Page 177)

“First, the reader should know that it is classically orthodox in its approach to Holy Scripture” (Page 9)

“We should be, as was Paul, students primarily of one book, even the Holy Scriptures” (Page 559)

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.

—Dr. Paul Gardner, Vicar, Harford, Cheshire

Dr. Reymond has applied his considerable skill in systematic theology to the study of the writings of the Apostle Paul... Dr. Reymond is feeding the mind and the heart simultaneously in the same way that Paul originally did. And that in itself is the reason to get this book and read it.

—George W. Knight III, Adjunct Professor of New Testament, Greenville Presbyterian Theological Seminary, Greenville, South Carolina

... every element of Paul's theology is shown to have missionary significance. Reymond interacts with the most up to date scholarly views and provides a reliable conservative study of the great missionary theologian from which every serious Christian reader will profit.

—David McKay, Professor of Systematic Theology, Ethics and Apologetics, Reformed Theological College, Belfast, Northern Ireland

    I have just finished reading through this book and found it both fascinating and useful. The first part seeks to summarise the life and work of Paul - looking at who he was, his conversion and his missionary activity. It does this by integrating information from Acts and Paul's own writings to build up a picture of his ministry in various places. The second part presents a view of some of the major aspects of Paul's theology as represented in his preaching and writings. While there were some areas I disagreed with it was a very helpful perspective on the key strands of Paul's thinking. The author does believe, and argues, that Paul wrote Hebrews and so uses some material from Hebrews in developing Paul's theology. Depending on whether or not you subscribe to this view may affect how you see some of his theological arguments.
