God's Love Compels Us

“Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, God making his appeal through us. We implore you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God.”
2 Corinthians 5:20

In this collection of biblical expositions, seven prominent Bible teachers lay the biblical foundation for missions based on the apostle Paul’s words in 2 Corinthians, addressing a number of oft-debated topics along the way. Chapters include:

  • D. A. Carson - The Biblical Basis of Missions (2 Corinthians 4:1-12)
  • David Platt - Why the Great Commission is Great (2 Corinthians 4:13-18)
  • John Piper - The Heart of God in the Call to Proclaim (2 Corinthians 5:1-10)
  • J. Mack Stiles - Being Ambassadors for Christ (2 Corinthians 5:11-21)
  • Andrew Davis - Are People without Christ Really Lost?
  • Michael Oh - The Individual’s Suffering and the Salvation of the World
  • Stephen Um - Jesus and Justice

God’s Love Compels Us focuses on God’s love as the motivation for missions, encouraging individual Christians to embrace the privilege of taking the gospel to the world.

Part of The Gospel Coalition series.
