Our Last Great Hope by Ronnie Floyd

Acts 1:8 "...and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea, and in Samaria and unto the uttermost part of the earth."
Mark 16:15 "...Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature."
How may times have you read these passages? So many it has become meaningless or mundane?
Floyd, an author and pastor has taken the words Great Commission to a whole new level. This book speaks to individuals as well as the church to our role and responsibility in the Great Commission. The author uses his own experiences, as well as biblical examples to awaken our desire in fulfilling God's plan for bringing people to Himself.
As a longtime christian, I have heard many sermons and read plenty of articles and books on soul-winning. This book is very direct, challenging and convicting. After reading this book, my desire for the Great Commission has changed (for the better). This book would make a great personal or group read. Very though provoking and soul searching questions can arise from such a read?
Christ's return grows nearer and so does heaven. There are so many who won't be going with us...the Great Commission...our last great hope.
*This book was sent to me by Book sneeze in exchange for my honest review.
