Editorial Reviews

Daniel Montgomery
"This book is a fresh reminder of Paul's theology and practice of church multiplication. Here you will find solid biblical scholarship integrated with grounded reflection on missions."
Chris Castaldo
"Paul said, 'Be imitators of me as I am of Christ.' This volume not only examines important issues associated with the apostle's ministry; it offers readers the requisite vision for pursuing Christ's mission in the first place."
Doctor - Keith Eitel
"The editors of this book have combined biblical and missiological scholarship that further enhances the relevance of Roland Allen's piece Missionary Methods: St. Paul's or Ours?, while also moving us beyond it to the challenges of a new century. Perhaps the most salient insight rendered is the reminder that each generation should avoid simple replication of the methods Allen assessed but should resubmit to the call to ascertain whether or how our missionary actions reflect biblical patterns and then take corrective measures where needed. Correction entails constructive self-study, which is always an emotive challenge. Missionaries, globally engaged pastors, students and mission administrators should read this, mark it up, think through its implications, and do the hard work of analysis for our time."
Tom Elliff
"This book stands tall in the forest of studies on Paul's missionary methods. Utilizing the significant contributions of widely respected missiologists, the editors have managed to focus on timeless issues while providing thought-provoking application for today. This will be a must-read for the thoughtful missionary and serious student alike."
Bob Stevens
"Plummer and Terry clothe the skeleton of the broad subject of missions with deep insights, encouragement and reminders within the framework of a healthy review of contributors from relevant mission experience and history. Any mission student, missionary, pastor, missions committee member or short-termer will gain by reading this biblically centered book with insight from some of the best mission minds of the centuries."

James M. Howard
"It is recommended for scholars, pastors, students, and the untrained who are interested in this area and who desire a current scholarly, yet readable and understandable, approach that emphasizes demonstrating the gospel in every situation."
Don Dent
"Overall, this is a very helpful book. As I have recommended Missionary Methods to hundreds of aspiring missionaries and mission leaders, I will now also recommend Paul's Missionary Methods as a companion volume."
Stephen Skuce
"This text . . . is well worth reading from a general interest in mission and in Biblical studies and is likely to be one of the key contemporary books on Paul for the next number of years."
