Paul as Missionary

A Comparative Study of Missionary Discourse in Paul's Epistles and Selected Contemporary Jewish Texts


James Yeong Sik Pak

What did St. Paul preach to found Christian communities among Gentiles? Did he have in mind his contemporary Hellenistic-Jewish missionary preaching for his own Christian missionary preaching? These two questions are dealt with in this book.

«...advanced students interested in the topic of Paul's missionary preaching and its Jewish background will benefit from this useful study.» (Mark Goodwin, Religious Studies Review)
«The presentation is clear, the summaries superb. The book is recommended for libraries supporting graduate level studies in Paul, Christian origins, and Jewish postbiblical literature.» (Regina A. Boisclair, The Catholic Biblical Quarterly)
«Die Studie ist...ein guter Beitrag zur Missionstheologie des Paulus.» (A. Fuchs, Studien zum Neuen Testament)
