Desiring God: Meditations of a Christian Hedonist


Show Synopsis

This is a book about being happy. God-centred joy, argues Piper, is fuelled by worship, prayer and the Bible, and spills over to others in service and mission. As we practice this 'Christian hedonism', we shall realize our destiny - 'to glorify God by enjoying him for ever'.

A Life Changer

John Piper is to evangelical Christianity what Johnny Cash was to popular music. He's a one of a kind theolgian with the emotions of George Herbert, the intellect of C.S. Lewis, and the backbone of John Knox. No believer trying to make it through these confusing times can afford to miss out on what he has to show us. Desiring God is the natural place to start as it lays the foundation for everything he so longs for us to know about Christ . Johnny Cash rattled a lot of cages when he took his music to Folsum and San Quentin. Piper did no less by taking on the false but well ingrained idea that if we are to glorigy God, we must be indifferent to our own happiness. Instead he shows that we go wrong by seeking our happiness in the wrong places and apart from him who created us. In Piper's words, God is most glorified in us when we are most satisified in him.
