Since its publication a decade ago, Let the Nations Be Glad! has provided thousands of seminary students, missionaries, and pastors with a sound theological foundation for missions.

Piper now offers a revised and expanded edition of this theological and biblical defense of God's supremacy in all things.

Piper explains who this book is for: This book is not just for missionaries. It is for pastors who (like me) want to connect their fragile, momentary local labors to God's invincible, eternal, global purposes. It's for lay people who want a bigger motivation for being world Christians than they get from statistics. It's for college and seminary classes on the theology of missions that really want to be theological as well as anthropological, methodological, and technological. And it's for leaders who need the flickering wick of their vocation fanned into flame again with a focus on the supremacy of God in all things. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jamison | 2/17/2014

    " What a great book on God's heart for the mission of His Gospel to every soul on earth! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Diane Dekker | 2/13/2014

    " Excellent book! Chapter 2 is worth the price of the book all by itself. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jerry | 2/1/2014

    " Great stuff greatly hampered by a reduction of the promises for all the nations to be discipled to only a few from all nations to be discipled. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stacy Moss | 1/28/2014

    " This book will revise how you think about modern day missions. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dustin Cook | 1/16/2014

    " The first paragraph on the first page is worth the entire price of this book. This book will give you a God-centered perspective on getting the gospel to all nations. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chuck Nevola | 12/22/2013

    " I was particularly caught by the comment that we have a duty to get the message to all nations, peoples, tribes and tongues, particularly those "outside the camp," which tells me that we need to be sending people out to various places in the world and not just hoping to reach hidden people through our influence on traveling business people and students from other countries. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gregory Soderberg | 12/21/2013

    " Wonderful! Every Christian should read this, especially those in leadership roles. Every Reformed Christian, in particular, should read this. We need to spend more time on evangelism, and less time on deciding who is, and who is not, really "Reformed." While we sit and argue about points of doctrine, people are going to hell (and Piper presents the Biblical evidence for actually believing in hell). I don't want that burden on judgment day! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jin Bae | 12/15/2013

    " Revolutionized my understanding of Christian Missions. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Fanie Buys | 12/10/2013

    " A God perspective on missions. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Matthew Robbins | 10/30/2013

    " Really good. A little repetitive in some spots, and having a base understanding of a little Greek would help in the chapter on the discussion of what "all the nations" means, but seriously good stuff on missions and how the supremacy of God drives it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mikkee | 10/30/2013

    " Classic missions text... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeff | 10/19/2013

    " Great premise for all Christians to live by! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rebekah | 10/18/2013

    " Not just a "missions" read. I was really challenged by this book to evaluate how/whether my priorities reflect true commitment to Christ. Definitely worth reading whether you have any formal involvement with missions or not. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brad | 10/12/2013

    " Must read for anyone thinking about missions and, more to the point, what all of life is about. The kneecap of his argument is summarized well in the Conclusion, which is only five pages in my old edition. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jimmy | 10/11/2013

    " A great motivator for missions. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 David | 10/7/2013

    " Classic missions book. Must-read for those interested in missions or Christians seeking to be challnged. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melanie | 9/5/2013

    " Good book, but a hard read "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jim | 1/2/2013

    " The best book I have read about the nature of missions! Packed with good theology, wonderfully biblical, and courageous enough to tackle the difficult issues. Top recommendation "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anna | 12/30/2012

    " Very theological and Scriptural, but dense as hell and best taken by chapters. (Do not attempt to read this all in one week!) A convincing petition to pray for the nations and fulfill the Great Commission. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Laura | 8/21/2012

    " The standard book for all things missions related. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Zachary Thomas | 7/16/2012

    " I really enjoyed this book however some parts became very repetitive. Piper writes with many examples and "proofs" to prove his point. It's as if he had skeptics in mind when he wrote this... Or he wanted to make sure he wouldn't be misunderstood. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tracy | 1/4/2012

    " This book changed my life. It gave me a greater appreciation and understanding of missions and challenged me to be willing to go to hard places to share the gospel. The 4th and 5th chapter are a bit hard to get through though.... good content though. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jstrick | 10/6/2011

    " I actually read the 3rd edition and feel quite confident that I will be thumbing its pages again very soon. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rob | 10/2/2011

    " I learned that it is not about me and that God is not egotistical. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brian | 7/21/2011

    " excellent paradigm-shifting teaching about living out faith in a truly God-centered way "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Josh | 5/23/2011

    " The first half of this book is one of my favorite explanations of Christian missiology. The rest is a bit dry, and perhaps overstated. But the first half is great! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jstrick | 1/26/2011

    " I actually read the 3rd edition and feel quite confident that I will be thumbing its pages again very soon. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Skipper | 10/7/2010

    " Do you think Piper is against evangelism? Read this book. This definitely helped to expound my vision for God's global purpose of His church. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jerry | 5/12/2010

    " Great stuff greatly hampered by a reduction of the promises for all the nations to be discipled to only a few from all nations to be discipled. "

    " I read this book in preparation for a mission trip to Ecuador in fall 2004. This is a nice book explaining the importance and significance of missions work. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tracy | 3/5/2009

    " This book changed my life. It gave me a greater appreciation and understanding of missions and challenged me to be willing to go to hard places to share the gospel. The 4th and 5th chapter are a bit hard to get through though.... good content though. "
