This eight-session study guide to Let the Nations Be Glad! offers a biblical defense of God's supremacy in all things, providing readers with a sound theological foundation for missions. Topics include studying and defining what Christian mission is, and also defining how we should understand people groups and the world's diverse mission field, the urgency of missions, the goal and fuel of missions which Piper believes is prayer and suffering. Churches often struggle with how to present missions to their members, but in this study series which includes a DVD and the classic book by Piper Let the Nations be Glad, churches now have access to a powerful tool that established the theological biblical mandate for missions, and encourages believers to be a part of God's mission in the world. Excellent for small groups study, Sunday school, and for really challenging young adults.
This new study guide complements the Let the Nations Be Glad! DVD, further increasing comprehension of the book's themes. The eight lessons in the study guide correspond to the DVD's presentation topics. This resource is ideal for church and small group studies.
