Paul, Missionary of Jesus
After Jesus Series • Volume 2
From The Publisher:
Was Paul the “second founder” of Christianity, striking off in directions Jesus never envisaged and teaching lessons Christ never endorsed? In this study Paul Barnett sets out to establish that, current theories aside, the apostle was a true missionary of Jesus, authentically extending the Lord’s mission.
Arguing that Paul’s own writings are uniquely supplemented by Luke’s contemporaneously written narrative of the Acts of the Apostles, Barnett follows Paul on a decade of travels, examining him in his historical context and as revealed by his writings. Including maps of Paul’s travels and five helpful appendixes, Paul: Missionary of Jesus is ideal for anyone interested in seeking out the historical truth of Christianity.
“A well-written, concise introduction to Paul’s activities as a missionary based on his letters and Luke’s Acts of the Apostles. The book is full of valuable scholarly information and takes a special look at discussed Pauline problems.”
—Martin Hengel, University of Tübingen
“This wonderful book will certainly become auxiliary reading in the courses I teach on Acts and Paul. It puts together Acts and Paul’s own writings in a fashion that is believable, attentive to the texts themselves, and full of life and vitality. Above all, Paul is simultaneously grounded in history and shown to be utterly captured by Christ and his gospel. Insights into the biblical material leap from many pages. I hope this volume will circulate widely.”
—D. A. Carson, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School
