How does a certain place influence the self? Could one argue that Paul's territoriality and mission strategies are Jerusalem-centered? Does the letter to the Romans, as an insight into Paul's mission strategy, reveal the apostle's central territorial paradigm and offer explanations for the creation of Paul's theology as it affects his mission?

In dealing with these questions, Ksenija Magda analyzes if and how spatial theories developed by the geographer Robert D. Sack can be utilized for the clarification of long-standing questions in Pauline theology, for example his motivation to evangelize the Gentiles, the center of Paul's theology, the relationship to his own people and the origin of his doctrines on justification. In doing so, the author also shows how conflicting issues can be resolved.
