Usually people give a review of the book when they finish reading it, but my way of giving review is when I start reading a book I really want my friends and co-workers to know what I am reading and to make them know what the book is all about.
So here is another book that I started reading, another brilliant work from John piper. Feel free to comment on this blog or tell me some thing that you guys found out motivating.
This book clearly demonstrate that worship is the ultimate goal of the church and that proper worship fuels missionary outreach. So please go ahead and grab a copy for your self, read it and give it away.
The Main thesis is the Supremacy of GOD in missions.
Here is an outline from preface to the Third Edition
My passion is to see people, churches, mission agencies, and social ministries become God-centered, Christ-exalting, Spirit-powered, soul-satisfied, Bible-saturated, missions-mobilizing, soul-winning, and justice-pursuing. The supremacy of God in all things for the joy of all peoples through Jesus Christ is the central, driving, all-unifying commitment of my life.

This is one of the Most important question that we need to ask. And as a Christian this is the most Important question you need to be able to answer. Many people have many different answers, but here is the book What is the Gospel? written by Greg Gilbert, who helps us to see the bigger picture of God’ redemption plan for his man kind in Four simple points.
This is a great tool for the beginners and mature christians to simply and clearly share the Gospel with others.
Main Points of the Gospel
A) God the Righteous Creator
B) Man the Sinner
C) Jesus Christ the Saviour
D) Response – Faith and the Repentance
This book is good for all Pastors, elders, decons infact every christian and the person who investigates the gospel. The Foreword is written by D.A. Carson. One other thing I like about this book is the depth and details that Greg has given to the each topic, And how it relates to the scripture. This is the message which is not clear to many churches and many Individuals.
It’s always good to read books, but never quit studying the scripture. Think and Pray the Gospel every morning, which is the great way to remind ourselves of God’ love for us through his Son. Spend time in fellowship, discussing and praying the Gospel.
As it is written in (1 Pet. 3:15) .. always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect,..
Are you able to answer some one, if they ask you about your faith? what will be your response?
Test, Train, Affirm, and Send Into Ministry is a great book by Brian Croft and is a highly recommended one. Currently I’m going through this book, Although I’m still at the third chapter. This is the book that you really wanted to work in detail, Well all the books you read has to be done in similar manner, but I think if you have a genuine desire to be in the ministry and yet not sure what you suppose to do then this book is a good start.
I like how the author talks about the Internal call and External call, To be honest I never thought about external call, I thought it never existed. But it does really play an Important Role.
Keep studying, you will never ever graduate from the Gospel.
