Finally puts to rest the old argument what is most imporant for the chruch, worship or missions/evangelism by showing how these two work together. A good start to build a theological base...i then moved to the practical outworking of this in Transformation by Bob Roberts. I have heard his second volume will specifically deal with how to enable your church to do what Piper so encourages us to do...get the nations aware of and praising the God who is Global.
This book is incredible! You know the feeling where you want to reach the entire world with the gospel, but all you find is the burden and condemnation telling you that youre not getting the job done? Trust in the Lord! He is working through you as you walk with Him daily, and most of all, God is in control. This book is definatly worth buying.
This book really deserves 2 stars (not the 1 that I gave it) but it is so overrated by the other reviews that I felt a need to balance it out. I have not finished this book yet, and will edit this review with more detailed information when I have completed it. Piper has interesting ideas which suffer from his attrocious use with the English language. For one, his obsession with constructing catch phrases from words that all begin with the same letter is corny, and leaves him scrambling to cohere to a malconstrued outline. The writing contains neither the common-man appeal of C.S. Lewis nor the eloquence of great theologeans such as Jonathan Edwards, to whom Piper seems to aspire. As for the content - Psalms seems to be the bulk of his theology in the first chapter, and what follows is hardly an exigesis: ideas are presented as if from nowhere, while Piper hurls often non-contextual scriptures at them. If this is really the best book available on missions, then Christianity is in big trouble.
I wrote my initial review when I was 18 and in seminary school. Not only do I disagree with the messages of this book, I would recomend that before picking it up to condsider you would first read 'Fear and Trembling' by Kierkegaard. I no longer consider myself a christian, but a follwer of truth that is first found in myself.
