What should the church be doing now? paul and the Mission of the Church is an essential study examining Paul's letter to the Philippians in its ancient Jewish context and seeks to make a convincing case that Paul expected churches to continue the work of spreading the gospel. Formerly published in hardcover by Brill in Supplements to Novum Testamentum, this critical study is now available from Baker Academic as an affordable paperback.
