Once again, the Library of New Testament Studies (formerly JSNTSup series) have commissioned a world-class standard scholarly work on the New Testament, drawing on a variety of linguistic, textual, and historical methodologies... A stimulating and enlightening read. -- James Harding, St Mellitus College, London * Anvil *
This compilation features essays by leading NT scholars on various aspects [which] jointly contribute to Pauline studies generally and to Paul as missionary specifically. Perhaps more importantly, though, this volume bridges the gap between Pauline theology and praxis. * David Briones, Religious Studies Review *
Burke and Rosner have done Pauline and missiological studies a great service in gathering these essays...a nuanced and even-handed reading of Paul...recommended for missions, intercultural studies and Pauline theology courses and accessible for upper-level undergraduates and seminary students. * Brian Tucker, Criswell Theological Review *
Once again, the Library of New Testament Studies (formerly JSNTSup series) have commissioned a world-class standard scholarly work on the New Testament, drawing on a variety of linguistic, textual, and historical methodologies. * James Harding, Anvil *
The collection's strength lies in drawing attention to the variety of topics that relate to Paul as missionary, ranging from social issues such as ethnicity and patronage to theological concerns such as sacrifice and the Holy Spirit...many of these issues...have rarely been the focus of research in the area of Pauline missiology. Another significant contribution is the emphasis on the prophetic foundation and eschatological motivation of Paul's missional theology, identity, and ethnic focus. * Jeffrey R. Asher, Catholic Biblical Quarterly *
The authors...deliver a compelling case...that Paul should be viewed from the perspective of missionary...a valuable contribution to Pauline studies. * Ronald R. Clark, Review of Biblical Literature *
