Let The Nations Be Glad
by John Piper
John Piper reminds us that mission is not the ultimate goal of the church, worship is, and that mission exists because worship doesn’t.
He goes on to show that where passion for God is weak zeal for mission will be similarly weak and that churches that are not centred in the exaltation of the majesty and beauty of God will hardly be motivated to ‘declare His glory among the nations’.
His chapters on Mission and Suffering and the relevance of Paul’s attitude to ethnic groups are both fascinating and helpful. This book is a must for all who want to see Jesus glorified among the nations.
