John Piper

Distribution Complete

(Spanish) Finally Alive


The term “born again” is a precious term in the history of the Church. In his book, Finally Alive, John Piper takes the reader through a comprehensive study of Scripture and unveils what Jesus meant when He said, “You must be born again.” This book is one of the most lucid and thorough studies ever written for the believer in understanding the process from election, to “dead in our sins,” to new life and justification, and the process of sanctification. God is the great Doer of new birth and it is He that gives us eternal life!

Language and Situation

The Cuban community has been a literal “island” in the sea of human relations and globalization. Ruled for half a century by Fidel Castro the island is now governed by his brother, Raúl. The void created in the people’s heart by communism and isolationism has been filled with the desire for Christianity. Despite frequent acts of harassment against the Church, the Evangelical Church has grown rapidly and with fervor. Yet, nearly 80% of the population is still outside the reach of a local congregation. This growth has created an unprecedented need for trained pastors and Bible teachers. Training is limited by the lack of books, literature, and audio files for listening to solid preaching and teaching.  (Operation World, This is Cuba, World Factbook)

The importation of books is not legal and, thus, this project is designed to create a Spanish translation placed in a digital file that can be printed within the country of Cuba. National church leaders will print books and distribute them to pastors and seminaries.
