Twenty-five years ago this book lit the fires of my soul for overseas mission work. It took me beyond a mere emotional yearning for conversions to an awareness that God’s pursuit of redeemed worshipers from every tribe, tongue, people, and nation is the driving passion of his heart. This book changed how I read the Bible and how I saw my life, and I believe it will do the same for you too. I’m excited to commend this new edition to a new generation of readers.

—J. D. Greear, pastor, The Summit Church, Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina; author of Just Ask and What Are You Going to Do with Your Life?

When working on my PhD, I asked top missiologists for their list of the best books on missions. Let the Nations Be Glad! featured on every one of those lists. This book has become a classic on missions. John Piper has etched these unforgettable words on our hearts: ‘Missions exists because worship doesn’t. . . . Worship, therefore, is the fuel and goal of missions.’ Thirty years after it was first published, may this new edition of Let the Nations Be Glad! give yet another generation of God’s children a high view of God in missions!

—Conrad Mbewe, pastor, Kabwata Baptist Church; founding chancellor of the African Christian University

For 33 years, Piper served as pastor of Bethlehem Baptist Church. He has authored more than 50 books, and more than 30 years of his preaching and writing are available free of charge at desiringGod.org.

Piper attended Wheaton College where he majored in literature and minored in philosophy. He completed his Bachelor of Divinity at Fuller Theological Seminary, where he studied under Dr. Daniel Fuller.

In 1994, Piper founded Desiring God Ministries, which provides Piper’s sermons, articles, and information on titles he has authored. One of his bestsellers, Desiring God: Meditations of a Christian Hedonist, prompted the name of the ministry.
