Desiring God (Revised)
Desiring God, a classic work on the pleasures of knowing and serving God, is now available in a more reader-friendly edition that includes a discussion guide - ideal for use in a church-wide emphasis or for small group study. Desiring God, John Piper's classic, enthusiastic explanation of Christian hedonism, bears the message that the great business of life is to "glorify God by enjoying Him forever." Constantly drawing on Scripture to build his case, Piper shows why pursuing maximum joy is essential to glorifying God. He discusses the implications for this for conversion, worship, love, Scripture, prayer, money, marriage, missions, and suffering. Desiring God is a paradigm-shattering work that dramatically alters common perspectives on what relating to God should look like. Piper reveals that there really is no need to choose between duty and delight in the Christian life. In fact for the follower of Jesus, delight is the duty. He concludes that Christ is most magnified in His people when they are most satisfied in him.
