John Piper’s newest book Jesus: The Only Way to God is now in stock and ready for purchase in our online store—$4.99.
Here’s a paragraph from the conclusion (reformatted slightly):
I have written this little book to convince our minds and strengthen our hearts to do the loving thing, namely, to spread to all peoples the good news of God’s work in Jesus to rescue sinners (1 Timothy 1:15; Luke 5:32; Mark 10:45) and someday renew the world (Romans 8:20-23; 2 Peter 3:13; Revelation 21:1-4).
To this end, I have tried to answer three questions with arguments and illustrations from the Bible:
- Is there an eternal hell of conscious torment to be rescued from? Answer: Yes (Chapter 2).
- Is the death and resurrection of Christ essential for that rescue? Answer: Yes (Chapter 3).
- And do people need to hear this good news and believe it in order to be rescued? Answer: Yes (Chapters 4-7).
