Paul, Missionary Theologian A Survey of his Missionary Labours and Theology by Robert L. Reymond

A compelling presentation of Paul's theology enriched by insights from the field of Systematic theology. It is BIOGRAPHICAL, THEOLOGICAL, GEOGRAPHICAL, MISSIOLOGICAL, HISTORICAL, HERMENEUTICAL, INSPIRATIONAL!


'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.'

, Greenville Presbyterian Theological Seminary, Greenville, South Carolina) ... an excellent an inspiring book, and will probably become a standard work. It should be on the shelves of every minister, theological student, and missionary.--Churchman Journal ... 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 This book is like a breath of fresh air to those who want to seriously study Paul as a person, a man with a mission and as a theologian. It covers all three areas of his life in harmony, leaving the reader with an all round picture of Paul. We often think of Paul as the great Apostle, giant among the early writers of Scripture and yes he was. This approach does much to dehumanize the man. Within the pages of this book I found that the human element had been restored, I found myself identifying with the man, and not just the Apostle. It is thoroughly academic, it sometimes becomes a little bogged down with footnotes, but the structure, layout, are fairly easy to follow and after a few pages begin too become more accessible. The book follows a biographical note, starting with Paul's early history and working through to his final days of ministry. It is split into two sections - part 1 Paul's missionary labours which is biographical and part 2 Paul's missionary theology, which examines his theology. I can safely put it on my shelf next to FW Farrer and D Smith, such is its quality and depth.--CLC Reviews Those who have read and appreciated Robert Reymond's A New Systematic Theology of the Christian Faith, will be delighted with this new volume on the apostle Paul... Reymond's biblical and theological exposition of particular themes, for example, on canonicity, imputation, justification and the Holy Spirit, is superb and stimulating.--ATB McGowan Minister, East Church of Scotland, Inverness 'This is quite a book! It tackles a big subject and grapples with it in a big way... Professor Reymond is both a New Testament scholar and a theologian, roles not always combined. He writes with admirable clarity and never evades issues, either exegetical or theological.'--Geoffrey Grogan (1925-2011), Principal of Glasgow Bible College and well-respected author 'This excellent volume examines Paul's theology and practice of mission. Its scope is wide and touches upon many areas of Pauline studies that have caused and continue to cause controversy. Dr Reymond seeks to bring the reader through these to a deeper understanding of Paul's missionary method and practice but, above all, to the world-changing content of his message... undoubtedly an inspiring and thought-provoking work.'--Paul Gardner Senior Minister, Christ Church Presbyterian, Atlanta, Georgia 'helps students of the Bible to grasp the historical sequence of Paul's missionary work and introduces the main themes of Paul's teaching about God's work in his Son... Of particular note is a serious defence of the now generally abandoned view that Paul was the author of Hebrews.'--Douglas Moo Wessner Chair of Biblical Studies, Wheaton College, Wheaton, Illinois
