Desiring God: Meditations of a Christian Hedonistby John Piper
Synopses & Reviews
THE PURSUIT OF PLEASURE IS NOT OPTIONAL. IT IS ESSENTIAL.
Scripture reveals that the great business of life is to glorify God by enjoying Him forever. In this paradigm-shattering work, John Piper reveals that the debate between duty and delight doesn’t truly exist: Delight is our duty. Join him as he unveils stunning, life-impacting truths you saw in the Bible but never dared to believe.
“A modern manual of true spirituality.” – R.C. Sproul
“The communion of a longing soul and a satisfying Christ is at the center of God’s plan. Piper makes this overlooked, contradicted, trivialized, and sentimentalized message clear and compelling. Desiring God is a classic—now it’s even richer.” – Larry Crabb
“The healthy biblical realism of this study in Christian motivation comes as a breath of fresh air. Jonathan Edwards, whose ghost walks through most of Piper’s pages, would be delighted with his disciple.” – J.I. Packer
“This book profoundly influenced my life.” – Jerry Bridges
INCLUDES NEW MATERIAL, STUDY ONLINE, AND A RESOURCE GUIDE.
