Our Last Great Hope: Awakening the Great Commission
By: Ronnie Floyd
Our Last Great Hope by Ronnie Floyd is pretty much just another evangelism book like any other evangelism book. Every once and a while an Evangelism Explosion or Hell’s Best Kept Secret will appear but this is not one of these times. The whole premise of the book os that the great commission given to the Apostles to go into all the earth and preach the Gospel (which they succeeded in doing) applies to all individual Christians throughout history. I personally have a problem with this interpretation. No question the motives are good and so are the results of worldwide evangelism but I can’t endorse any misapplication of Scripture. Most importantly, this book, like most other books that deal with the “Gospel” (I put it like that since many times they preach a completely false Gospel today) this books gives a very weak Gospel. There is no radical repentance and no method for bringing a sinner to his end through the preaching of the law to bring about the repentance and faith necessary to accept the saving grace of Christ we’re suppose to be preaching. Evangelism is good. We should evangelize. However, we need to do much better than the feel good books on evangelism would have us do. I don’t endorse this book.
