Ecommend the book to anyone especially chapter 5It s not the easiest to read at times because Piper is thorough and wants to prove his points are from the Bible but definitely worth reading It ll stir our heart for God s global purpose of missions reaching the people groups of the world with the glorious gospel of Christ Warning Contains powerful emotional and scriptural truth If Pisco significa pajaro. you wantour view of missions to remain unaltered do not read this book Probably shouldn t give it just four stars I don t know I m extremely familiar with this book because I had to teach through it I think my reasoning for not giving it 5 stars is that it seemed to lack unity at certain parts Some of his key themes and proposals just needed to be stated times throughout the bookIt seemed from a redaction perspective as if he was just piecing together various texts he s already written on Christian hedonism exclusivism vs inclusivism universalism and some new material he had developed on the people group motifI would have appreciated overlap in themes integrationThat said the section on people groups in its historical context is very valuable to read His two sinking ships example is almost famous in missiological circles He was writing close enough to the Ralph Winter s presentation at the Lausanne Conference that most of his support for it is raw and beautifully naive It s excellent persuasive readingHis section on inclusivism and exclusivism is to me the best new contribution from a history of Piper s theology standpoint He s so good at arguing the case for inclusivism that he dedicated an entire book to it isbn0801072638 in which he uses most of the material in these chaptersAnd of course his section on why missions exists because worship doesn t is why Einführung in die deutsche Sprache der Wissenschaften you bought the book ifou did It s Christian hedonism at its best They provide most of this section in the Perspectives coursebook because it is so good Incredible book by a Spirit empowered man that taught me to understand the purpose of missions Many important truths regarding missions such as this fact Worship is the goal and fuel of missions Perhaps my biggest takeaway from this book was actually some of its periphereal ideas Such as the idea that God is not seeking to be glorified by saving as many people as possible speaking uantitatively but as many peoples as possible This actually comes much later in the book after Piper has laid much foundation for the goal and fuel of missions worship but it struck me as something I haven t heard people speak of By peoples Piper is pointing out that the Scriptures in their entirety point toward a missions that has its scope in reaching as many people groups as possible in our offspring shall all the nations of the earth be blessed Genesis 2218. Le into heaven although that is important as well Instead through missions we should always seek to make as many people as possible into true worshipers into those fully satisfied with the greatness of God With that mindset missions becomes a joyous experience as we joyfully share the life changing presence of God in our lives with those who don't know God When we have made worship both the fuel and goal of all our missionary endeavors we realize that missions is not a recruitment project for God's labor force It is a liberation project from the heavy burdens and hard okes of other gods Missions is never a burden because it comes out of our overwhelming joy in God's grace and mercy and we just want to share that joy So make God the center of Hai nhà your missions work and joyfully share what He has graciously given too.
John Piper s volume Let The Nations Be Glad presents a cogent clear and commendable case for making world missions a celebrated means rather than a mere necessary end Missions books often promote a view that the end goal of missions is to make missionaries train them and get them into the field As long as we have gotten them there we have achieved our goal Piper does not move so fast Missions he says is not the end It is the means Missions is not the ultimate goal of the church Worship is Missions exists because worship doesn t What is the glorious goal of missions It is nothing less than the collective peoples of the earth together treasuring the glory of God in the face of Christ That is the end for which the means of miss Moreover there is something about God that is so universally praiseworthy and so profoundly beautiful and so comprehensively worthy and so deeply satisfying that God will find passionate admirers in every diverse people group in the world His true greatness will be manifest in the breadth of the diversity of those who perceive and cherish His beauty The diverse the people groups who forsake their gods to follow the true God the visible God s superiority over all His competitors Piper As a missionary s son who d first encountered theology of missions as a teenanger I didn t think this book would add much to my Biblical thinking about missions Boy was I wrong It s doctrinally meaty but thoroughly seasoned with vivid language and stories told with Piper s characteristic I ll set myself ablaze and let em watch me burn passion Highly recommended for anyone interested in the work of Jesus in the world and particularly for those struggling with those asking Do ou need to trust Jesus to be saved and What about those who have never heard Al Mohler says Let the Nations Be Glad is the most important book on missions for this generation and I hope it will be the most influential as well My thoughts on this book would echo Dr Mohler s opinion This book is certainly vintage Piper Every chapter is God centered Scripture saturated and Christ exalting Unlike most modern books on missions it is theological treatise than missiological strategy Don t let that scare ou away however While I have had my struggles muddling through some of Piper s work this was a very easy read The chapters are very logical and he breaks almost every thought up with section heads I spilled a great deal of Falling Through Clouds yellow ink highlighting the 259 pages of this book and I will certainly be keeping it close at hand as a resource for all of my life and ministry It s hard for me to rate this book On the one hand it s a great entry level book on missions I would gladly hand it to someone who had no theological background and tell them to read it and le. Why do we do missions We are told by Jesus to preach the gospel and make disciples of all nations So missions is duty right Wrong Ifou do missions purely from a sense of duty The Art of Acquiring you will not honor thoseou are reaching out to nor will ou truly honor God Duty is the wrong place to look so where do we find the answer to why we do missions We turn according to John Piper to worship In our worship of God we encounter God's glory The overflow from our worship is a desire to share God's glory with others the chief end of man is to glorify God and enjoy Him forever and we naturally become missional When Jesus was asked what the kingdom of God was like he compared it to a pearl so valuable that one would sell all they owned simply to possess it Does that seem like duty to ou Instead Jesus calls us to a new mindset which.
Arn about the importance of worship and missions On the other hand it s far from the best book on missions I ve ever read I m actually astonished to see that blurb from Dr Ortlund on the back of this book This is very basic stuff To call this book dense is insulting to theologians who really wrestle with some of the issues Piper addresses here For instance instead of engaging with annihilationists Piper just throws proof texts at them this isn t surprising for anyone who has read Piper he is incapable of arguing and engaging those he disagrees with He just throws a few texts out of context at his opponent and calls it a day I profoundly disagree with Piper s emphasis on worship being only an inner thing and having no outward expressions and his complete de emphasis on discipleship Not to mention he is an awful writer and his written this same book at least 15 times now 2 stars seems right Great for beginners but should not be a stopping point at all This is a book I ll be referencing and recommending for a long time Piper is unrelenting and detailed in his arguments and I ve come away with a healthier and God glorifying view of God Read this book Wow As anyone who knows me knows I of course love John Piper s writing preaching and ministry However I hadn t read this book since I was in college I think 7 ears ago I remembered it being great but it was even better this time than expectedPiper s esteem for God among the nations is so uniue and contagious And not only that his ability to piece together biblical texts and ideas is incredible I could write a praise for each of the chaptersBut I just want to point out one chapter that I thought was ministry changing and so exceptional Chapter 5 The Supremacy of God among All the Nations In this 50 page chapter the longest in the book Piper argues and proves biblically that God s heart and call in missions is not to cross cultures so that the maximum number of individuals be saved rather God s will for missions is that every people group be reached with the testimony of Christ and that a people be called out for his name from all the nations 179In other words God s call to the church isn t to save as many individuals as possible per se it s to gather his elect from every people group Jesus did not send his apostles out with a general mission merely to win as many individuals as they could but rather to reach all the peoples of the world 211And just to be clear Piper isn t just saying this He proves it robustly from the Bible It s fascinatingThis seriously is so revolutionary to ministry The goal of God in missions in the Bible is not mainly to evangelize as many individuals but the people groups Perhaps we ve missed this in modern American evangelicalismMore could be said but I Flows from the mindset that worship creates in us Thus according to Piper does worship become the goal of missions and the fuel which makes missions possible Worship as the fuel for missions makes sense to a lot of people but worship as the goal of missions Piper reminds us that the true reason we share God with others is to make them worshipers and sharers as well He feels that the true goal of missions is the gladness of the peoples in the greatness of God If it is true as Piper states that God is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in Him then increasing the number of people who are satisfied in God will bring God glory And missions is the way we can do that Missions must be seen as than simply saving people from sin though that is a very important aspect And missions is not just about getting peop.
