WINNER of the 2011 "Retailers Choice Awards" for ‘Reformed'!

If the evangelical church at large was ever too confrontational in its evangelism, those days are gone. In our shrinking, pluralistic world, the belief that Jesus is the only way of salvation is increasingly called arrogant and even hateful. In the face of this criticism, many shrink back from affirming the global necessity of knowing and believing in Jesus. In Jesus, the Only Way to God, John Piper offers a timely plea for the evangelical church to consider what is at stake in surrendering the unique, universal place of Jesus in salvation.

I just enjoyed listening to this
John Piper gives a solid Biblical defense of the exclusivity of Jesus Christ for salvation, and by implication, the necessity of sharing the Gospel to those who haven't heard. His scholarship is so thorough that to make the most of this book one must keep the Bible open — each paragraph is loaded with Scripture references. Hence, this book is better enjoyed in physical form than audio. I particularly liked chapter 6, where he explains why the "nations" in Matt 28:19 must best be understood as referring to ethnic people groups.

As usual a great read by John Piper.
I actually listened to the audio version of this book from christianaudio.com.

Is it necessary for a person to have actual, conscious faith in Jesus Christ in order for them to be reconciled to God?

Do those who either refuse Jesus or who simply never hear of Jesus spend an actual eternity in hell under the wrath of Almighty God?

In Jesus, the Only Way to God,?

John Piper addresses these questions in his inspiring, helpful, and typically thorough style. Separate and apart from providing sufficient answers to these questions, Piper explains and exposes two of the erroneous but very popular beliefs that have crept into Christianity, and they are universalism and annihilationism.

The thing is, if you are not aware of what these beliefs cover, they are so prevalent today that there is a chance that you actually subscribe to one or both of them. For that matter alone it is well worth reading this book.

Did Rob Bell Read this?
This is a solid biblical address to this hot topic. If you didn't know this came out a year ago, you would think it is a response to Rob Bell's latest offering. Pastor John doesn't back down, but offer's clear, biblically structured arguments for Jesus being the only way to God. I really like how he starts with the most basic arguments and moves to more deeply rooted arguments. Interesting the people who are quoted that waver on the issue and do not take a stand on it. If you want a concise, biblical punch-in-the-face to pluralism--here's a great start.
