Let The Nations Be Glad -John Piper
John Piper's Let the Nations Be Glad! has provided thousands of missionaries, pastors, and church leaders with a biblical basis for missions. Piper now offers a revised and expanded tenth anniversary edition of this sound, readable, and passionate defense of God's supremacy in all things.Drawing on biblical texts, Piper demonstrates that worship is the ultimate goal of the church and that proper worship drives missionary outreach. Among the topics addressed are the role of prayer, suffering and sacrifice, universalism and annihilationism, the incentives of sovereign grace for world evangelization, and the task of reaching unreached peoples.
This new edition contains updated references to contemporary literature and debates and new illustrations and quotations. This edition also boasts a new preface and two new chapters, the first encouraging passion for God's supremacy and compassion for man's soul and the second providing reflections on the New Testament and its cross-cultural vision for missions.
Let the Nations Be Glad! is essential reading for pastors, campus ministry workers, and all Christians who want to connect their labors to God's global purposes.
