Book Review: Desiring God by John Piper

10 Aug

Desiring God, Desiring God revised edition, desiring god updated, john piper

If you are looking to go deeper in your understanding of what the Christian life is all about, you must read this book. John Piper delves into the joy and happiness we can experience in God and also teaches that praise and worship flow as a natural reaction to the joy we find in God’s presence.

I have really enjoyed reading this book. I have learned things I didn’t know and things that I just haven’t thought of in this light. Piper contends that the Christian life should be the pursuit of happiness – not in fleeting, earthly pleasures, but in living in God’s presence.

You will find, as you read this book, that no matter what circumstance you are in, if you seek God’s glory, He will share it with you and bless you with joy and peace.

John Piper is a very studied individual and I fully appreciated his thoughts on the subject and thank God that there are people like John who go deeply into the Bible and draw out such wonderful truths. I’m looking forward to reading more of John’s books and gaining more understand through them.

Thank you Multnomah for providing this book for my review.
