Paul’s Missionary Methods

Robert Plummer of Southern Seminary is co-editor of Paul’s Missionary Methods published by IVP and he offers four reasons why the book is important:

1. Rarely do you find a book that effectively brings together the disciplines of biblical studies and missiology as this book does.

2. Contributors to this book are some the best thinkers in their respective fields: Craig Keener, Michael Bird, Eckhard Schnabel, Ben Merkle, David Hesselgrave, David Sills, Ed Stetzer, etc.  The writers are luminaries in New Testament studies and missiology.

3. Much missiological writing is fadish.  This book, however, is grounded in both the Scriptures and in a retrospective glance at a classic missionary text by Roland Allen, Paul’s Missionary Methods: St. Paul’s or Ours?

4. The book has been well-received by early readers and reviewers.  For example, see this blog post from Justin Taylor, who links to a full-length PDF of Craig Keener’s chapter on spiritual warfare and missions.

I am admittedly biased, but I think it’s a good book, my own chapter is on Paul’s religious and historical milieu, and Craig Keener’s essay is definitely worth reading and saving, esp. cause it’s free at the moment!
