In the introduction, Piper writes:
The greatness and glory of God are relevant. It does not matter if surveys turn up a list of perceived needs that does not include the supreme greatness of the sovereign God of grace. That is the deepest need. Our people are starving for God....So I am persuaded that the vision of a great God is the linchpin in the life of the church, both in pastoral care and missionary outreach.If you are involved in preaching and teaching God's Word, you should read this book. I highly recommend it.
