In 1 Corinthians 9 :l9-23 Saint Paul concisely summarized the principles that guided his missionary approach to the unconverted. Since he was both an Apostle one an eminently successful missionary, this pericope is a precious piece of missionary literature. Yet, as one examines books dealing with the subject of missions, he finds but a few passing, references to the passage. It is the purpose of this thesis to examine at greater length Paul's missionary tactics and the theology behind them as these are expressed in l Corinthians 9:l9-23. It is primarily an exegetical undertaking, but a chapter is included to point out some of the implications for modern missionaries in this and foreign lands.
