Our Last Great Hope Awakening the Great Commission By Ronnie Floyd

Posted: December 6, 2011 in Uncategorized

This book is based on the Great Commission given by Jesus in Matthew 28 that states “to go and make disciples of all nations”. As Christians we are all charged with this commission, but how do we go about doing that in today’s world?

Rev. Ronnie Floyd tells readers that we need to think differently about being Christian. He tells us that God wants us to have an active faith, which is more than just going to church, paying our tithes.

Rev. Floyd tells us that in the world today we are living in a time of emergency. As our scripture tell us to be awake and aware as we do not know the time when our Lord will come, but we must be awak. Rev. Floyd points out that we have not been awake with our faith, instead God finds us asleep. There are millions of people who do not know of God, let alone out Scripture.

This book is not about sitting back and learning theory, instead it is about taking action. Rev. Floyd writes in an easy to understand manner. The book reads much like you are listening to a conversation. Within the chapters he alternates between using a story like method and adding some historical facts. The one thing that kept me coming back to this book to read another chapter was Rev. Floyd’s style of writing.

This is something we must do, we do not have a choice in this. Once we decide to follow Christ we are charged with helping others to come to Christ. The book is filled with personal story. The reader is able to see that Rev. Floyd has struggled with the Great Commission. Rev. Floyd doesn’t pretend to have all the answers, instead he lays out a plan of enacting the Great Commission within our own churches.
