JT on Sending Books to Missionaries

Introducing his interview with John Piper on Piper’s new book, Filling Up the Afflictions of Christ, Justin Taylor makes this insightful comment:

When we hear about new book titles, our first thought often jumps to whether or not we should read it, how interesting the subject is to us, etc. But with this book, I’d encourage you to consider whether or not there are missionaries to whom you can send this book. I hope that numerous churches decide to send a copy to each missionary they support. I think this would be incredibly encouraging for those who have been sent out to the nations for the sake of the Name.

I wonder why we don’t send our own missionaries books and encouragement more often. Could it be that we (including me) have too often forgotten they’re out there?
