His letters are some of the earliest known Christian documents. Thirteen of the twenty-seven books of the bible are believed to have been written by him. Many of his letters were written to the church communities that he set up during his travels.

    But immediately following the martyrdom of Paul, a number of serious problems arose; these not only tended to check the growth, but also threatened the very existence of the Christian church. It was in an attempt to meet and solve these problems, that several New Testament books were written. One of the great needs in world evangelism today is the training of Christian leaders. This comes to the forefront in one of the most important works in world mission today, Operation World. The book provides extensive information about countries, spiritual interest, statistics of the church, and then specific needs for prayer in each country.

The clear message of Luke through Paul’s missionary journeys is that while the Apostle circled back to build up the church, the word of God only advanced.
