Paul: Missionary of Jesus
Barnett, Paul

Grand Rapids: Eerdmans, 2008 pp. xvi + 240. $16.00

Series Information
After Jesus, 2


Description: Was Paul the ďsecond founderĒ 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 Lordís mission. Arguing that Paulís own writings are uniquely supplemented by Lukeís 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 Paulís travels and five helpful appendixes, Paul: Missionary of Jesus is ideal for anyone interested in seeking out the historical truth of Christianity.

Subjects: Bible, New Testament, Pauline Epistles, Literature
