- Leaders and Managers – both have critical roles; however, knowing the difference will lead to proper people placement.
The depth and complexity of Jesus shatter our simple mental framework. He baffled proud scribes with his wisdom but was understood and loved by children. He calmed a raging storm with a word but would not get himself down from the cross. John Piper has written this book in the hope that all will see Jesus for who he really is and will come to enjoy him above all else.
It is better to burn quickly and melt many souls than to burn slowly and melt none.
– Sadhu Sundar Singh,
Barely hours before he intended to take his own life, the young Sundar Singh had a dramatic vision of Jesus Christ. Immediately the emptiness and despair that had filled his heart was lifted, and his search for inner peace was over. Despite opposition and rejection at home, he soon knew that he had to share his faith throughout the towns and villages of India, and beyond into the dangerous mountain regions of Tibet. What better way than to put on the robes of a Sadhu, and to take to the road with no guarantee of food or shelter, but with a passionate desire to live as his Master had done before him?
This is a book about the new birth, about regeneration, about what it means to be born again. Born again is a term we hear often these days, both within the walls of the church and outside. But it seems that the term is so often used in a different way than the doctrine as we find it in the Scripture.
Piper offers four reasons for writing this book on the new birth. First, so we can understand what God intends when the Bible uses this language of the new birth; second, to help followers of Christ know what happened to them when they were converted; and third, to serve as a possible means for those who do not yet believe to come to faith in Christ. "My aim is to explain the new birth as clearly as I can from the Bible so that readers can see it for themselves." And he does so in just the way we expect from John Piper--with clear exposition of Scripture and with undeniable passion and integrity.

Great Truths from God’s Word is a treasure guide of Bible references for those who have been given the responsibility to teach, preach and lead others in faith. It would also enrich believers of Christ with biblical knowledge in order to grow themselves into mature Christians and build their lives on true and firm foundation of God’s Word.
“The main value of Great Truth is that it obliges readers to dig into the text of Scripture for themselves. Nobody could do this without becoming both intellectually and spiritually enriched.” --John R. W. Stott
The most important questions anyone can ask are: Why was Jesus Christ crucified? Why did he suffer so much? What has this to do with me? Finally, who sent him to his death? The answer to the last question is that God did. Jesus was God's Son. The suffering was unsurpassed, but the whole message of the Bible leads to this answer.
The central issue of Jesus’ death is not the cause, but the meaning—God’s meaning. That is what this book is about. John Piper has gathered from the New Testament fifty reasons. Not fifty causes, but fifty purposes—in answer to the most important question that each of us must face: What did God achieve for sinners like us in sending his Son to die?
This book attempts to answer these questions: What is the Bible all about? What does the Old Testament have to do with the New? Why are their four Gospels rather than one? How does Christianity differ from other world religions and from the Mormons and other cults and from the New Age movement? And what does it mean to be a Christian and to live Christianity?
The first half has to do with the story and message of the Bible, the Old Testament, the life and ministry of Jesus, the Gospel testimonies to Jesus, and the Pauline and General Letters and the book of Revelation. The second half has to do with the history of Christianity, Christian doctrines and beliefs, other religions and beliefs, apologetics and the Christian worldview, growing in and sharing Christ, and some guidelines for Christian living.
