Product Description

A century ago Roland Allen published Missionary Methods: Saint Paul's or Ours?, a missiological classic which tackled many important issues, including what biblically rooted missions look like in light of Paul's evangelistic efforts.

Although Allen's work is still valuable, new understanding of Paul's milieu and missionary activity have been gained, as has further understanding of how his practices ought to inform missions in our ever-changing world.

Using the centennial anniversary of Allen's work as a springboard for celebration and reflection, the contributors to Paul's Missionary Methods have revisited Paul's missionary efforts in two parts.

First, Paul is examined in his first-century context: what were his environment, missions strategy and teaching on particular issues? Second, what are the implications of Paul's example for modern missions? Is Paul's model still relevant, and if so, what would it look like in a modern context?

Experts in New Testament studies and missiology contribute fresh, key insights from their fields, analyzing Paul's missionary methods in his time and pointing the way forward in ours.

Publisher's Description

What does Paul's missions strategy mean for today? A century ago Roland Allen published Missionary Methods: Saint Paul's or Ours?, a missiological classic which tackled many important issues, including what biblically rooted missions looks like in light of the apostle Paul's evangelistic efforts. Although Allen's work is still valuable, new understandings have been gained regarding Paul's milieu and missionary activity, and how his practices ought to inform missions in our ever-changing world. Using the centennial anniversary of Allen's work as a springboard for celebration and reflection, the contributors to Paul's Missionary Methods have revisited Paul's first-century missionary methods and their applicability today. This book examines Paul's missionary efforts in two parts. First Paul is examined in his first-century context: what was his environment, missions strategy and teaching on particular issues? The second part addresses the implications of Paul's example for missions today: is Paul's model still relevant, and if so, what would it look like in modern contexts? Experts in New Testament studies and missiology contribute fresh, key insights from their fields, analyzing Paul's missionary methods in his time and pointing the way forward in ours.

"This book is a fresh reminder of Paul's theology and practice of church multiplication. Here you will find solid biblical scholarship integrated with grounded reflection on missions."
"This book stands tall in the forest of studies on Paul's missionary methods.

"Paul said, 'Be imitators of me as I am of Christ.' This volume not only examines important issues associated with the apostle's ministry; it offers readers the requisite vision for pursuing Christ's mission in the first place."
"The editors of this book have combined biblical and missiological scholarship that further enhances the relevance of Roland Allen's piece Missionary Methods: St. Paul's or Ours?, while also moving us beyond it to the challenges of a new century. Perhaps the most salient insight rendered is the reminder that each generation should avoid simple replication of the methods Allen assessed but should resubmit to the call to ascertain whether or how our missionary actions reflect biblical patterns and then take corrective measures where needed. Correction entails constructive self-study, which is always an emotive challenge. Missionaries, globally engaged pastors, students and mission administrators should read this, mark it up, think through its implications, and do the hard work of analysis for our time."
