Situation

Set against the brilliant cobalt of the Adriatic Sea, Croatia is a land boasting splendid natural beauty. However, outward appearances aren’t always what they seem and underneath the fair facade, you will find a land fraught with economic, political, and religious turmoil, both past and present. Due to years of communist mismanagement combined with the war with Serbia, a once stable economy now finds itself sinking in a financial troubles with high unemployment and low wages. Sharp political and ethnic divides due to power rivalries also stand as barriers of hatred amongst the Croats, Serbs, and Bosnians. Great spiritual need exists in this land. The Catholic Church remains highly influential in this region with as many as 15% of professing Catholics attending mass each week - a high proportion for Europe. The concern would be that Catholic

(and all) Croatians would move beyond meaningless ritual and into a dynamic relationship with Christ. Many Croats, Serbs and Bosnians have professed faith in Jesus and as a result have been brought together in reconciliation, presenting a powerful display of the gospel to their fellow countrymen. While Croatia is ripe for the gospel in many ways, seminary professors and pastors are still in great need of training and resources. Croatian believers are also in need of Biblically-sound literature in their own language for the purposes of growth and discipleship. (BBC World News, Operation World, pp. 289-291)

The Resource 

“More than ever I believe in preaching as a part of worship in the gathered church. Preaching is worship, and it belongs in the regular worship life of the church, no matter the size of the church” (p. 9).

According to Warren Wiersbe, The Supremacy of God in Preaching “calls us back to a biblical standard for preaching, a standard exemplified by many of the pulpit giants of the past, especially Jonathan Edwards and Charles Spurgeon.” This newly revised edition is an essential guide for preachers who want to stir the embers of revival. Piper focuses his study on the example of Jonathan Edwards as an illustration of a leader who submitted to God.
