Publisher Comments:

The Pursuit of Pleasure Is Not Optional. It Is Essential

In this DVD version of Desiring God—the classic description of Christian hedonism—John Piper explains how the supreme calling of life is to "glorify God by enjoying Him forever."  

    Drawing upon Scripture after Scripture, Piper shows why pursuing maximum joy is essential to glorifying God and, in what may be surprising to some, how God is ready to pursue with all His might our pleasure in Him! The implications of this truth are discussed in regard to conversion, worship, love, Scripture, prayer, money, marriage, missions, and suffering.

 

   In ten sessions Piper teaches on: 

   • One Great Mission and Motivation

   • A Summary of Christian Hedonism

   • The Foundation of Christian Hedonism

   • The Essence of Christian Hedonism

   • The Grand Obligation

   • How Then Shall We Fight for Joy?

Recorded in HD with subtitles in English, these video sessions are ideal for use in adult and youth Sunday-school classes, small groups, retreats, classrooms, and families. To get the most from this resource, use it along with the Desiring God DVD Study Guide.

Synopsis:

God Is the Blazing Sun at the Center of Reality

Everything revolves around Him. And as the most valuable and glorious person who exists, God is loving, not conceited, when He call us to worship Him. His pursuit of glory and our pursuit of joy are not at odds--because God is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in Him.

In these eight 30-minute sessions on three DVDs, John Piper explains from the Bible: Why God is so passionate about His gloryWhy our happiness depends on God's pursuit of His gloryThat God actually commands us to pursue our happinessThat sin is when we abandon God and pursue our happiness in lesser thingsHow our love for God is revealed by our delight in Him, not our labors for HimHow joy in God overflows in love to meet the needs of othersHow only joy in God can sustain us in times of profound suffering

Recorded in the intimate setting of a retreat for youth leaders and students, these sessions are ideal for use in adult and youth Sunday school classes, small groups, retreats, classrooms, and families. To get the most from this resource, use it along with The Blazing Center Study Guide.

Synopsis:

Scripture reveals that the great business of life is to glorify God by enjoying Him forever. In this paradigm-shattering classic, newly revised and expanded, John Piper reveals that the debate between duty and delight doesn't truly exist: Delight is our duty. Readers will embark on a dramatically different and joyful experience of their faith
