The Pleasures of God

Meditations on God's Delight in being God

John Piper
  • £12.99

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

The heart of the book is the first six chapters, dealing with the pleasures of God in his Son, in all he does, in creation, in his fame, in election and in bruising the Son. The next three chapters set forth his delight in doing believers good, listening to their prayers and in their personal obedience.

The subject matter is not light, but it is presented in a most readable and attractive way. it gives access to Puritan reflection on the passionate, pure and perfect heart of God. This book is recommended reading for all.
