The church always seeks to renew itself and redefine the dedication to the values that Jesus hoped the church would live and promote. This book endeavors to bring vision and challenge to our contemporary efforts to build church by going back to the beginnings of the church and examining the vision and commitment of the Apostle Paul. He became involved in a very energetic and often controversial mission to the churches he founded. He is an original thinker who allows the message of Jesus to penetrate the social realities of his day. Let us observe how he spent his time, discover the source of his zeal and energy, and appreciate his dynamic and changing understanding of the church community. Paul has so much to teach us in our contemporary efforts to understand and energize church.
