Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

THE PURSUIT OF PLEASURE IS NOT OPTIONAL. IT IS ESSENTIAL.

 

This study guide companion to the DVD version of Desiring God—the classic explanation of Christian hedonism by John Piper—will help individuals and groups understand that the supreme calling of life is to "glorify God by enjoying Him forever."  

The DVD and this guide create an ideal package for adult and youth Sunday school classes, small groups, retreats, classrooms, families, as well as for individual study.  

Topics for this 12-session guided group study include:

  • One Great Mission and Motivation
  • A Summary of Christian Hedonism
  • The Foundation of Christian Hedonism
  • The Essence of Christian Hedonism
  • The Grand Obligation (Part 1): Commanded to Rejoice
  • The Grand Obligation (Part 2): An Essential Element of Faith and Worship
  • The Grand Obligation (Part 3): Holy Hedonism Is Love
  • The Grand Obligation (Part 4):  The Strength for Sanctification and Service
  • How Then Shall We Fight for Joy? (Part 1): Know Its Sources and Setbacks
  • How Then Shall We Fight for Joy? (Part 2): Make Use of the Means of Grace
 

Complete with Scripture, key quotations for reflection, penetrating questions, and five daily assignments per week, this study guide will help you understand why God’s pursuit of His glory and your pursuit of joy are not at odds—because God is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in Him.

 

Also includes a 6-session intensive track option. Leader’s Guide Included.

Synopsis:

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.

JOHN PIPER is pastor for preaching at Bethlehem Baptist Church in Minneapolis,

Minnesota. He is the author of more than forty books, including Future Grace, A Godward Life, The Dangerous Duty of Delight, Don't Waste Your Life, and The Pleasures of God. John and his wife, Noel, have five children and an increasing number of grandchildren.

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.
