Christian Focus publishers is releasing a new title by John Piper in the UK sometime after Christmas, but the book is available for pre-order now. The title is Finally Alive and the topic is “Have I been born again?” Those of us who follow Piper’s sermons will recall that he gave a series of messages on this topic last year. The product description:
Why is the church so ineffectual and characterised by the mosaic generation as unchristian? The term born again has been devalued both in society and in the church. Recent social studies surveys have shown that those who regard themselves as born again Christians have the same tendency to divorce as people who arent Christians at all! In these surveys, being born again is defined by what people say they believe. The New Testament defines Christians very differently. Piper defines new birth biblically and helps us to embrace the reality of it.
