"The Christian gospel is more than just a wonderful offer of saving grace; it is a demand for supreme loyalty, for surrender to the lordship of Jesus. We forget this too easily in our contemporary church, besieged as we are by a philosophy of pluralism that rejects ultimate authority and a culture of rights that scorns submissiveness. But John Piper reminds us of the real truth: obedience to Christ's commands is our absolute duty; yet, paradoxically, in his service is perfect freedom and joy!"
—William J.U. Phillip, Minister, St George's-Tron Church, Glasgow, Scotland, UK
"John Piper reveals in his 'Word to Biblical Scholars' his familiarity with the literature and subject matter of the life and teachings of Jesus, and in his comments on the individual demands of Jesus he applies them to everyday living."
—Robert H. Stein, Senior Professor of New Testament Interpretation, Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
"This is now my favorite book by John Piper. In the best tradition of Adolf Schlatter's Do We Know Jesus? and his 'hermeneutic of perception,' What Jesus Demands from the World has changed my life and will certainly change yours because it is based on the pure words of Jesus as revealed in the four Gospels. A must-read for every true follower of Christ."
—Andreas J. Kostenberger, Senior Professor of New Testament and Biblical Theology, Director of Ph.D. Studies, Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary
"This book is a special gift from the pen of John Piper. How long has it been since you carefully reflected upon the authoritative commands of Christ? Through these pages you will encounter the Savior and experience the transforming effects of the gospel. Few endeavors are more worthy of your time."
—C. J. Mahaney, Sovereign Grace Ministries
"Scholars, popularists, and now even novelists are falling over each other today in a blind passion to discover an alternative Jesus to the One so magnificently portrayed in the biblical Gospels. In stark and refreshing contrast John Piper clear-sightedly grasps the obvious-the biblical Jesus is worth living for and dying for."
—Sinclair B. Ferguson, Senior Pastor, First Presbyterian Church, Columbia, South Carolina
"This is a peculiar book. It assumes that the four Gospels are true and unified. It assumes that Jesus not only does things for us but also makes demands of us. And it assumes that Jesus has authority over everyone regardless of their religion, gender, race, income, sexuality, nationality, or culture. You will likely not agree with every point. But you will hear from a Jesus who is more than a soft-spoken, effeminate, marginalized, Galilean hippie-peasant in a dress and has the peculiar notion that he alone is Lord."
—Mark Driscoll, Founding Pastor, Mars Hill Church, Seattle; President, the Resurgence
I wish he would have done a better job of bringing all this together. Just seemed incomplete. A lot of Scripture without a lot of practicality.Published 24 days ago by D. Newport
