Description

God is the happiest being in the universe. To know him in his pleasures is to see him as he truly is. This is the proposition put forward by John Piper.
The things that make God glad are the measures of his greatness. John here studies 10 ways which God reveals gives him pleasure.
John Piper was reading through a classic book that was instrumental in the conversions of Charles Wesley and George Whitefield - ('The Life of God in the Soul of Man' by Henry Scougal ISBN 978 1 85792 105 2) when he came across a key that was to turn his life upside down. He read 'The worth and excellency of a soul is to be measured by the object of its love.'

Endorsements

"Again John Piper has provided a rich feast for the serious believer."

John MacArthur, Chancellor Emeritus, The Master’s University and Seminary and Pastor–Teacher, Grace Community Church, Sun Valley, California

John Piper takes ten of God's expressed 'delights' and searches their significance and implications with rare zeal. What a privilege to have someone think through these biblical realities so lovingly and seek out our biblical reasons so keenly. If all Christian books were offerings on an Australian barbecue, this would be one of the juiciest steaks around - hot, healthy and wonderful.

Simon Manchester, Senior Minister, St Thomas’ Anglican Church, Sydney, Australia
