Did the apostle Paul expect the early Christian communities to evangelize?

This book engages in a careful study of Paul's letters to determine if
the apostle expected the communities to which he wrote to engage in
missionary activity. It helpfully summarizes the discussion on this
debated issue, judiciously handling contested texts, and provides
a way forward in addressing this critical question.

While admitting
that Paul rarely explicitly commands the communities he founded to
evangelize, Plummer amasses significant incidental data to provide a
convincing case that Paul did indeed expect his churches to engage in
mission activity. Throughout the study, Plummer progressively builds
a theological basis for the church's mission that is both distinctively
Pauline and compelling.

Robert L. Plummer is Assistant Professor of New Testament
Interpretation, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Louisville,
