Each of us has a restlessness, an inconsolable longing within. Some try to satisfy it with scenic vacations, creative accomplishments, huge cinematic productions, sexual exploits, sports extravaganzas, drugs, ascetic rigors, managerial excellence, and more. Yet our longing remains. Why? John Piper turns your heart toward the one true Object of human desire: God. He shows how fulfilling your duty to delight in Him can change your attitude toward worship, toward marriage, toward material goods, toward your very mission and purpose on earth. Jesus is not safe, but He is all satisfying!
Worldwide about 300 million speak French. For 110 million it is their first language. Europe has about 75 million French speakers. During the 20th century, France laid claim to much of west Africa, colonized the people groups, and taught French as a major social language. French is still taught in most schools of western Africa. The influx of Islamic rule and practices has led to the opposition of Christianity and the church. The major growth of Frenchspeaking Christians is being seen in Africa, and these men and women have a heart for all parts of the French-speaking world. Many are calling for resources in literature, audio sermons, and DVDs to regain many of their values. (BEM, Operation World, pg. 254-59)
