(French) In Our Joy


This pocket-sized discipleship book was designed to encourage and challenge professing Christians to truly and fully follow Christ. It is a selection of chapters from John Piper's book What Jesus Demands from the World.

What would compel a man to sell everything he has in order to buy an open field? An overwhelming joy arising from his knowing that treasure is buried in it.

Jesus compared his kingdom to these circumstances. When we face the hard road of suffering and sacrifice to which Jesus beckons us, we act just like the man who found a treasure hidden in a field. In our joy we are able to sell all that we have and walk with Jesus along the Calvary road.

Join John Piper as he describes the cost of following Jesus, and the supreme joy which sustains believers every step of the way.


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)
