Another great post on Steve Addison’s blog, World Changers. He’s posting some thoughts as he reads Rodney Stark’s book Cities of God. This post is pretty poignant, since he points out how little Paul’s methods have in common with the church planting methods du jour.
The key quote for me is not Addison’s:
“Paul’s missionary work, therefore, should not be thought of as the humble efforts of a lonely missionary. Rather, it was a well-planned, large-scale organization.” Helmut Koester
