5.0 out of 5 stars A God-centered beacon to preachers, September 27, 1999
In this self-centered age that is increasingly saturated with self-gratification, in the Church as well as out, this book is a God-centered beacon to preachers. It's been 30 years since J.B. Phillips published "Your God is too Small," and our popular conception of God certainly hasn't gotten any bigger since then.
John Piper caught his God-centered vision of preaching (and all of life), from Jonathan Edwards, and in this concise little book he ably passes that vision on to the reader with a heart for God. When I am feeling dragged down by things of the spirit of this age, I find this little book always able to lift me back up into heavenly places.
What we need in our churches, in this shallow age in which we're living, is for our preachers to be set on fire with the God-centered, God-magnifying, God-glorifying vision of preaching which this thoroughly Biblical book inspires! Much thanks to John Piper, for his faithfulness to God...and Glory to God, for gifting men like Piper and Edwards with a passion for His Glory, and the gift to so ably communicate that passion! Sola Deo Gloria!
