The question might properly be asked, 'Why another book about Paul? Haven't hundreds upon hundreds of books been written about Paul's life and ministry?' Yes, says Robert Reymond in the preface to this book. Not only books but commentaries on his letters and well over fifty-seven hundred journal articles about him as well! Firstly this is a classically orthodox book in its approach to Holy Scripture. Secondly Robert is concerned to portray Paul primarily in his role as a missionary, he is also concerned to represent as correctly as he could the main themes of his missionary theology. As an incidental feature in this book moving against the majority opinion of New Testament scholars in this age, Robert argues the case for Pauline authorship of the Letter to the Hebrews. This book comes from lectures for seminary students but they are not so scholarly that only a Paul scholar would appreciate them, they have been used to teach in Sunday School class and revised into their present form for the larger Christian public. This book was also written with the needs of mission agencies, missionaries and mission candidates in mind after Robert Reymond had spent a sabbatical on the mission field in South Korea and Japan.
