This new edition of a bestselling textbook (over 185,000 copies sold) draws on key biblical texts to demonstrate that worship is the ultimate goal of the church and that proper worship fuels missionary outreach. John Piper offers a biblical defense of God's supremacy in all things, providing readers with a sound theological foundation for missions. He examines whether Jesus is the only way to salvation and issues a passionate plea for God-centeredness in the missionary enterprise, seeking to define the scope of the task and the means for reaching "all nations." The third edition has been revised and expanded throughout and includes new material on the prosperity gospel. The book is essential reading for those involved in or preparing for missions work. It also offers enlightenment for college and seminary students, pastors, youth workers, campus ministers, and all who want to connect their labors to God's global purposes.
God exalted in missions
Very good and challenging book on missions. John goes very deep at times, and I found myself having to re-read many sections. But this book is a treasure and one that shows what most churches today no longer teach - the upmost importance of global missions.
Second only to Desiring God
This book is pivotal to missions. It stirred my heart toward missions, turned my friends to missionary wok in Spain and I have never heard anyone who has read it give anything but rave reviews.
I encourage anyone who wants to go on a mission trip read this book. I've read it a few times and it never gets old.
