Finish the Mission: Bringing the Gospel to the Unreached and Unengaged

  • Editors: John Piper and David Mathis
  • Publisher: Crossway
  • Publication Date: 2012
  • Pages: 192

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

In Finish the Mission, contributors David Platt, Louie Giglio, Michael Ramsden, Ed Stetzer, Michael Oh, David Mathis, and John Piper take up the mantle of the Great Commission and its Spirit-powered completion.

From astronomy to exegesis, from apologetics to the Global South, and from being missional at home to employing our resources in the global cause, Finish the Mission aims to breathe fresh missionary fire into a new generation, as together we seek to reach the unreached and engage the unengaged.

Finish the Mission issues a clarion reminder of God’s enduring passion to glorify himself by blessing all nations on earth. The gospel and mission are inseparable. A clear understanding of the mission of the church is absolutely essential in today’s fast-changing global environment.

The Power of Words and the Wonder of God

  • Editors: John Piper and Justin Taylor
  • Publisher: Crossway
  • Publication Date: 2009
  • Pages: 176

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

Words carry immeasurable significance—the universe was created with a word; Jesus healed and cast out demons with a word; rulers have risen and fallen by their words; Christians have worshiped through words of song, confession, and preaching. Even in this technological age, politics, education, business, and relationships center on words.

Since the tongue is such a powerful force, one may ask: what would homes, churches, schools, and even the public square be like if words were used with Christian intentionality and eloquence? The Power of Words and the Wonder of God seeks to answer this difficult question. In these chapters, derived from Desiring God’s 2008 national conference, John Piper, Sinclair B. Ferguson, and Mark Driscoll team with worship pastor Bob Kauflin, counselor Paul Tripp, and literature professor Daniel Taylor to help readers harness their tongues and appropriately command their silences for the glory of God and the ministry of the Gospel.

Stand: A Call for the Endurance of the Saints

  • Editors: John Piper and Justin Taylor

Many people seek to better their lives by leaving, changing, swapping, or modifying their commitments. But God’s Word holds up a beautiful value that, while difficult, leads to deep satisfaction and great reward: endurance.

This thoughtful book both elevates the virtue of godly endurance and bears witness to its power in the Christian life. This volume’s contributors include John MacArthur, Jerry Bridges, Randy Alcorn, and Helen Roseveare. Each individual represents a different kind of endurance—from MacArthur’s longtime, faithful shepherding of a church to Alcorn’s radical obedience in the culture wars, and from Bridges’ unswerving patience through suffering to Roseveare’s courageous constancy on the war-torn mission field. This inspiring volume awakens and solidifies Christ-exalting endurance in people who are weary in their faith journey or who simply long to remain firm to the end.

The Supremacy of Christ in a Postmodern World

  • Editors: John Piper and Justin Taylor
  • Publisher: Crossway
  • Publication Date: 2007
  • Pages: 192

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

Six of today’s leading pastor-theologians—John Piper, Voddie Baucham, D. A. Carson, Timothy Keller, Mark Driscoll, and David Wells—have joined together to offer Christians a practical, biblical vision of Christ’s supremacy. After grounding readers in the important truths of Christ’s deity and the gospel, The Supremacy of Christ in a Postmodern World strives to help believers understand how to share these truths in a postmodern society. Through applying lessons from this book, readers gain a practical, biblical vision of ministry for the twenty-first century.

Many would have us believe that life is hopelessly fragmented and truth an elusive dream. The authors of this book beg to differ and enthusiastically point us to the cohesive centrality and absolute supremacy of Jesus Christ.

Thinking. Loving. Doing.: A Call to Glorify God with Heart and Mind

  • Editors: John Piper and David Mathis
  • Publisher: Crossway
  • Publication Date: 2011
  • Pages: 176

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

Thinking. Loving. Doing. challenges readers to be thinkers (engaged and serious about knowing God), feelers (pulsing with passion for Jesus and his gospel), and doers (endeavoring great acts of love for others).

Our Savior shows us that holistic Christianity is comprised of mind, heart, and hands. He shows us that the Christian life is multidimensional—irreducibly and inseparably thinking, loving, and doing.

With contributions from Francis Chan, Rick Warren, Albert Mohler, R. C. Sproul, and Thabiti Anyabwile, Thinking. Loving. Doing. extends a thorough and compelling invitation to experience the fullness of the Christian life.

I found this book to be a fascinating, challenging, insightful, practical, and surprisingly personal discussion of how Christians can grow in both knowledge and love.

With Calvin in the Theater of God: The Glory of Christ and Everyday Life

  • Editors: John Piper and David Mathis
  • Publisher: Crossway
  • Publication Date: 2010
  • Pages: 176

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

John Calvin saw this world as God’s theater where his glory is always on display. Just as “day and night pour forth speech,” the universe and history are not silent either—they tell the glory of God. Reflecting on over 500 years of Calvin’s legacy, John Piper and other contributors invite us to join Calvin in the theater of God.

Stemming from the 2009 Desiring God National Conference, this volume includes chapters by Julius Kim, Douglas Wilson, Marvin Olasky, Mark Talbot, Sam Storms, and John Piper. It touches on topics such as Calvin’s life, the Christian meaning of public life, sin and suffering, the joy of the last resurrection, and Jesus Christ as the dénouement of God’s story.

Editors John Piper and David Mathis, along with the contributors, make John Calvin’s Christ-exalting perspective on the glory of God accessible to today’s readers. Both Calvinists and other evangelicals interested in the life and work of Calvin will find these essays refreshing and instructive, leading to a robust understanding of the world as God’s theater.

From the recent flurry of studies on John Calvin, it is evident that we can understand neither the sixteenth century nor our own times without reference to the reformer of Geneva. This little book reveals Calvin to be a God-saturated theologian whose love for Jesus Christ and his church touches every area of human life. A jewel of a book!

Timothy George, founding dean, Beeson Divinity School

What does a theologian and his theology look like if he and it are firmly centered on the Triune God and his glory? These essays will show you. You will meet Calvin the pastor, the theologian, the polemicist, the husband, the father, the sufferer, the lover of God and his church—all roles played out in “the theater of God.” Whether you’re meeting Calvin for the first time or spending time with an old friend, this book will give you a glimpse of the wide horizons that are opened to one who has God’s glory firmly at the center of life. Be warned, Calvin’s vision is contagious.

—Stephen J. Nichols, research professor of Christianity and culture, Lancaster Bible College

With Calvin in the Theater of God is a rich and readable introduction to one of the church’s greatest pastor-theologians. Examining Calvin from many angles—including pilgrim, counselor, public intellectual, sinner—the contributors offer an elegant composite of the man even as they point to the object of his worship and work: Jesus Christ. It is perhaps the resolute faithfulness of Calvin’s life that most stands out here; this steadfastness, which in God’s providence produced a major Christian movement bursting with energy today, reminds us that our faith is exercised hour by hour, day by day, trial by trial, all for the honor and acclamation of the Lord. Whether eminent or unknown, we are reminded in these pages that in the grand theater of God’s glory, there are no bit players.

—Owen Strachan, assistant professor of Christian theology and church history, Boyce College

Suffering and the Sovereignty of God

  • Editors: John Piper and Justin Taylor
  • Publisher: Crossway
  • Publication Date: 2006
  • Pages: 256

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

In Suffering and the Sovereignty of God, contributors John Piper, Joni Eareckson Tada, Steve Saint, Carl Ellis, David Powlison, Dustin Shramek, and Mark Talbot explore the many categories of God’s sovereignty as evidenced in his Word. They urge readers to look to Christ, even in suffering, to find the greatest confidence, deepest comfort, and sweetest fellowship they have ever known.

John Piper and friends tackle some of the hardest and most significant issues of Christian concern, producing one of the most honest, faithful, and helpful volumes ever made available to thinking Christians. It is filled with pastoral wisdom, theological conviction, biblical insight, and spiritual counsel. This book answers one of the greatest needs of our times—to affirm the sovereignty of God and to ponder the meaning of human suffering. We need this book.

R. Albert Mohler Jr., president and Joseph Emerson Brown Professor of Christian Theology, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

This book will challenge you to believe that God is truly sovereign, not just in the safe haven of theological inquiry, but also in the painful messiness of real life. You will be encouraged to live more consistently by God’s grace and for his glory.

—Mark D. Roberts, senior director and scholar in residence, Laity Lodge
