Find the Source of True Satisfaction

 

In this DVD version of his landmark book, The Pleasures of God, John Piper fully discusses the question: “What brings delight to the happiest Being in the universe?” The answer is crucial to joyful Christian maturity, because it’s by knowing what makes God glad that we can drink deeply—and satisfyingly—from the only well that offers living water.

 

In ten sessions, Piper teaches on:

   • The Worth and Excellency of God’s Soul

   • Our Pleasure in God’s Well-Placed Pleasures                                                                

   • God’s Pleasure in His Eternal Son                                                                                 

   • God’s Pleasure in the Display of His Glory                                                                     

   • God’s Pleasure in All That He Does

   • God’s Pleasure in All of Creation                                                                             

   • God’s Pleasure in Election                                                                                            

   • God’s Pleasure in Bruising His Son     

What followers of Jesus need now, more than anything else, is to know and love—behold and embrace—the great, glorious, sovereign, happy God of the Bible.

 

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 Pleasures of God DVD Study Guide

Synopsis:

Beginning where the foundational truth of Desiring God left off, that "God is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in Him," this expanded rerelease of another classic by John Piper will further explore a life-changing essential — "We will be most satisfied in God when we know why God himself is most satisfied in God." Fully understanding the joy of God will draw the reader into an encounter with His overflowing, self-replenishing, all-encompassing grace — the source of living water that all Christians desire to drink. The Pleasures of God will again put God at the center of Creation and leave the reader very satisfied in Him.

Be Most Satisfied in God…

Because GOD Is Most Satisfied in God.

You don’t truly know someone until you know what makes him happy. Our pleasure is the measure of our character. So it is with God. We can only know the greatness of His glory, if we know what makes Him glad. Therefore we must understand “the pleasures of God.”

This is not a book about you. It’s about the One you were made for—God Himself. In this theological tour de force, pastor John Piper navigates the biblical evidence to help us see and savor what the pleasures of God show us about Him, so that we might become like the One we behold.

What the church and world need today, more than anything else, is to know and love—behold and embrace—the great, glorious, sovereign, happy God of the Bible.
