The Pleasures of God

Meditations on God's Delight in being God

John Piper


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.'
