Every day we encounter scores of people headed to an eternity without God. What will it take to wake us up to their desperate need for a Savior?

While the earth's time clock ticks away, well-meaning Christians go to church, pay their tithes, and pray for foreign missionaries¨going through the motions of Christian life as millions face an eternity without God. If heaven is indeed for real, and only those who have put their faith in Christ will be given entrance, shouldn't we be making the most of every opportunity to share the Gospel, the last great hope for all the world?

Join pastor Ronnie Floyd as he challenges readers to face reality and begin a global movement to reach the lost. He says, "God is calling us to an awakening regarding his most urgent command found in Matthew 28:19 to go and make disciples of all nations. This Great Commission is the compelling charge given to us with divine authority by our Commander in Chief, Jesus Christ."

Our Last Great Hope will move us beyond casualáand theoretical talk about the Great Commissionáand lead us into a Great Awakening.
